That brings me to the Accountability Project, I went to the Dietician today and what I heard wasn't as positive as I was hoping. The good news is that I am doing everything right! She looked over my food journals, discussed eating habits and exercising routine and everything looks good. The bad news is I got the fat gene and therefore may never be thin. She told me that there is lots of science that is yet to be done as to why the body does what it does when it comes to their bodies, and all bodies are different. She printed out this article for me to read which basically says if you have the fat gene your body works against you loosing weight. It's not all bad, it does say that if you are working at it like I am then you just don't get super fat. I could just throw my hands up, and say screw it and gorge, but then where would I be? I prefer to eat right, and have the ability to run for miles. So I'll keep up my routine and continue to try and find my way in the world of food, but from what I'm reading this is going to be a long drawn out process that is going to take years just for the upkeep. I'm not liking the idea of keeping up with this project for the rest of my life. So for now I'm ending my project, I was hoping for a more concrete plan, but she just assured me I'm already on the right path, so I'm just going to putter along and hopefully one day I'll be at the weight where I will be happy.
