Starting a New Life

I've decided to make the biggest change I have ever made in my entire life, (besides marriage..possibly...but maybe not!) I don't want to say what it is yet, but I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. Also, really nervous. I can't wait to share with everyone once I know where it's going to take me! Nutrition is my passion and my life and I'm going to get everything out of it that I can!

Have you ever made a life-altering change that turned your world upside down, for the better?

I'm a (dedicated) slacker

So I've been extremely MIA recently. I just realized I haven't even posted on my blog since August first. AND I missed WIAW last week which I never do. :( But I do have good reason. I've been studying like a crazy woman for the RD exam. I basically get up at 6, work from 8-5, get home 5:30ish, have dinner with the hubby around 6, then study until 11. This has been my life everyday for the past month. Hopefully it will all be over soon and I can have a life again (blog and otherwise) :) I'll try my very hardest to post something semi-interesting tomorrow ;)

New Approach To Weight Loss?

I don't know what it is about parents these days, but they ALL seem to think their baby has reflux. And not just reflux, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Babies spit up, that's what they do..well that and eat and poop.

This mom tried to tell me her 2 1/2 month old 17 POUND BABY, wholy crap, has reflux. Uhhh.. if your 2 1/2 month old baby has tripled it's birth weight, pretty sure he's keeping something down. Then she actually says to me, "I think he weighs too much, maybe I should start giving him food since he is so hungry."

 I can't fathom how this woman went from my baby is fat to I should feed him more... Maybe I've had this weight loss thing wrong all along and what I really need to do is just eat some extra ding dongs...

*Just to clarify, I do not advocate weight loss for babies, nor have I ever eaten a ding dong
