Currently I am an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, APRN, in Women’s Health. Being a
woman myself I understand the struggles that we face when it comes to diet and weight lost. It is a known fact that there are times in a woman’s life that put her at a disadvantage when it comes to weight. Puberty, pregnancy, menopause or just any hormone shift are some of the concerns that can increase weight. I believe that the foundation is always proper nutrition. I had to learn that for myself, as I found myself over 200 pounds during my first pregnancy. Now visualize a moment, I’m only 5 foot. I didn’t get the proper nutrition; therefore I gained an excessive amount of weight. It was not until I decided to clean up my diet where I started to see my life change. I eventually lost all the weight and then some. My next pregnancy I gained right at the normal pregnancy weight gain guidelines for my BMI and lost it within 4 months.
As mentioned above I believe that nutrition is the foundation. I understand that there are many different diets, I would like to focus on making healthy lifestyle changes. I don’t want to prescribe to a particle diet. Just like medications what works for one does not mean it will work for all. My hope is that the counseling would lead to healthier lifestyles and increased physical activity, which in turn would make families and communities healthier. I feel this way because usually, I understand not always, it is the woman who does the shopping and cooking of food. I see so many obese and morbidly obese women and teens daily, I want to be able to help them achieve this for themselves and their families as well.
