EatRight PA Blog - PA Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics

For years passion diminished the potential influence I had as a Registered Dietitian. Passion was the roadblock in my career path because I was too busy trying to achieve big dreams. I was suffering from what some physiologists call the passion paradox. Over the years I was driven by three main goals: I wanted to be the best blogger but had 3 failing blogs.I wanted to be the best mom but was overscheduled and the quality time with my kids was sacrificed.I wanted to be the best Pediatric Dietitian but did not have time to focus on pediatric nutrition. In 2014, I became the President of the Al Beech West Side Food Pantry and everything changed.

I've recently lost 20 pounds. People ask me how I did it. I’d love to tell you that I was sitting around one day inspired to get up and get fit, but unfortunately that is not how it happened. On July 20th, my fiancé was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. We knew that it was possible, that he could get it. Had you asked me in June if my family had healthy eating habits, I would have answered yes without hesitation. In the short time since I've lost weight there is one question I get asked consistently - “What’s your secret?” I wish I had an answer that people wanted to hear.
