Today I will make time to thank my body for all it can do.

I am grateful for my heart that beats and keeps me alive.

I am grateful for my legs and feet that move me.

I am grateful for my ears, nose, and mouth.  Because of these I can listen to a friend in need, smell the aroma of a home cooked meal, taste the nutrition that feeds my body, speak words to comfort, and laugh till I cry and my heart is content.

I am grateful for the perfect flaws that I have and for all that they have taught me.

I am grateful for the people who brought me into this world and raised me into the person I am today.

I am grateful that I am here and able to read this and share with people that I love.

Today I am going to state all that I am grateful for rather than everything that needs to be change and improved.

Today I am simply grateful.

Adrien Paczosa is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian practicing in Austin, Texas and the surrounding counties. Adrien is also a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian(CEDRD). Adrien began her path towards nutrition through her falling down. She has been a dancing since age 2 and in college was a Kilgore College Rangerette. During a practice, she took a fall and broke her foot, and that sparked the ideas of needing a new direction in her life. After graduating in 2003 from the University of Illinois – Chicago with a bachelor of science degree in Human Nutrition, Adrien began her career as a staff dietitian at the hospital in downtown Chicago. She was promoted to the hospital’s Director of Food Service and Nutrition and was responsible for all food preparation as well as patient nutritional care. While working at her clinical job, Adrien maintained her passion for movement by working as a personal trainer and nutrition coach in downtown Chicago. In 2006, Adrien returned to Texas to be close to family, friends, and warmer weather! She opened her private practice, I Live Well Nutritional Therapy in 2007 and has only continued to grown. To date, iLiveWell Nutrition Therapy has multiple locations, contracts with numerous corporations and treatment centers, and currently, five dietitians are employed under iLiveWell. “Creating better access to dietitians!” has been one of the driving forces of Adrien’s company.
