Congrats to our Transformation Tuesday star, Gina!
How long have you been coming to Nutrish Mish? What made you start?
I have been obese all my life and have been on multiple multiple diets and lifestyle changes and I knew that I needed some thing more so I had gastric sleeve surgery on December 4 of 2019. I am 47 years old married for 16 years with 3 children.
A month after surgery I knew that I needed additional help and I was so lucky to find Nutrishmish Nutritionist Kim! My start weight was 211 lb with 48.6% body fat. I've been attending weekly sessions in person & through FaceTime for 6 months.
After 6 months: 153lb & 32.6% fat
What has been the biggest transformation you have seen in yourself (mindset wise, habit wise, etc)?
I learned that I need to eat six small meals a day in order to get the healthy calories I need.
I now know that their are alternative choices that are delicious & satisfying.
What made this time different then other times you have tried to get healthier or lose weight?
It's only been six months but I really feel like this time it's going to be different because I'm finally eating real food that is satisfying and I don't need to drink shakes or take diet pills or eat low-fat sugar free foods to lose or maintain my healthy weight.
What advice would you have for someone just starting with Nutrish Mish?
The advice I have to give is definitely log all your food down. This is so helpful to look back with your Nutritionist and discuss foods that you ate & learn how to eat in a healthy way. Feel satisfied & love what your eating! Also definitely do not miss any sessions make sure that you attend your sessions on a weekly basis even if you think that you had a bad week, the Nutritionist will definitely help you move forward to a good life!
