I’m an RD!

Posted on


IMG_1743It took many cups of green tea and coffee to get here, but I finally took and passed my RD exam this morning! It still hasn’t hit me that I’m a registered dietitian. All I can say is, “Wow.” And then a few incomprehensible mumbles of gratitude.

Keeping the secret from you guys was killing me, but I’m happy to say it was an almost zen experience, Mercury retrograde be damned. I’m glad I can talk about it in the past tense now!

First, a nap. And then…we celebrate 🙂

Thanks for all your encouragement support along the way and for putting up with my bitching and moaning about studying!

    You are amazing!! It must feel so great to have that exam (not to mention the preceding internship) off your shoulders! I long for the day when I can write a similar post. Enjoy!!

      Thanks—I don’t think I knew how stressed I was about it until I saw the “Congratulations…” at the top of the screen! It does feel really good. And you’ll be there sooner than you can even imagine! It goes so fast…

    […] Good morning—happy Monday! How was your weekend? I enjoyed a little stay-cation. It was so nice to unplug and unwind. I’m really bad at relaxing, but after almost 4 years of grad school with a dietetic internship and some crazy studying thrown in there, logic told me that one should totally take a few days off after passing the RD exam.
