Some clients get it right away. I provide them with knowledge and practical skills to make healthful eating a priority and they run with it.
Others need more time. They understand the basics of a healthful lifestyle, but their environment, habits, emotions, old patterns and irrational rationalizations stand in the way of progress. But those clients who continue to chip away at it, taking ownership of those obstacles and consistently inching forward, achieve real and lasting change.
In either case, when it "clicks," and a client makes and experiences real change in his or her life is a beautiful thing to see, and it's why I love this challenging work.
Thanks to this client for sharing this wonderful update, and for allowing me to share it (with all identifying information removed).
