Just when I felt like I was settling in to the routine of the new diet, I get a phone call from my Gastroenterologist’s office telling me that my nutritionist has just informed them that she is retiring as of November 1st! I would like to sit here and tell you that my reaction to this news was a wonderful example of a pure hearted Christian woman. I would like to tell you that, but then I would be lying.
No, sadly the only thing I can be grateful for was that I wasn’t able to answer the phone while I was on the job as the nanny. Because my instantaneous gut reaction was to scream out in such a way that would make any foul mouthed temper-tantrum throwing 2 year old proud.
I spent the day sulking and then decided to buck up and put my big girl panties on and handle this like the adult I am. Just because she decided to up and quit doesn’t mean I have to. I still have the plan she put me on, and I have a few contacts in the area to call. This is certainly fixable.
I have leapt over barriers larger than this; I can make it through this small hoop. It’s just another step in the process. My strong stubborn side has come out to play and I WILL when this battle. There is no more “if” I can lose the weight, just a matter of “WHEN”.
And for those of you out there fighting your own battles alongside me remember this: with God at your side and determination in your heart anything is possible. Don’t let these stupid road blocks get in your way.
*Update: In the days since I first wrote this post I have since been in contact with both my nutritionist as well as my doctor’s office. My doctor’s office is working on getting a new nutritionist in the practice and will be calling me when they get one. My nutritionist has informed me that she plans on keeping in touch through email. It looks like I may have slipped to the woe is me mentality a little too quickly. Hey…We all have our moments.
Nice steps of weight loss.
I’m glad to hear that your nutritionist will be keeping in touch and that your doctor’s office is finding a replacement. Hopefully the replacement will be just as awesome as your original nutritionist!
