Weight Loss Support - So uber stressed.
08-17-2009, 10:52 AM
Well on top of a 12-???? day period ..maybe tmi...I am stressing about all the money I have to shell out and how a certain program that was supposed to help me that I was really leaning on to pay the bills has totally failed me! Of course nursing classes are going to be way more expensive than what I am used too...but geez!
so how do I handle all of that stress on top of the physical stress of my body acting funky. Then keep losing weight. I know there are those out there that can deal with this, but am I one of them??? Can I do it???

Of course you can! You are one of those people that can handle it because you have chosen to be one of those people. Decide that that is who and what you are and you will become it. Take things in small steps, don't over think and you will get through this! Hang in there! You can do this! :)

Thanks Miss Bliss. I really need to lean on some old advice given to me by my dad who has passed. When I used to worry so much he would tell me "Jen, we will cross that bridge when we get there".
I have had it so easy (compared to how my life usually is) I guess I have become complacent and spoiled --and this huge shift has really shaken me up. Right now I have to lean on His Wise Words--"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".

Or my mom says..."We will burn that bridge when we come to it!" LOL!!!
It's all a matter of perspective !:D

Jen, you soooo can do this!!!
I am not saying that it is going to be easy, but the things you are working to accomplish are worth the struggle.
I have seen you in action on this forum and all I can say is that you are going to be an awesome nurse! The world needs nurses like you.
The hormonal stuff may well be influenced by the stress you are feeling.
And the weight loss isn't going to stop either, you are putting in hard work on that front and it will pay off.
So hang in there girl, it is all going to work out for you and we are here to give you a boost when you need one.

omg, I love you all! Thanks so much. I was feeling sooo overwhelmed. I just prayed and told God I was scared, but I trusted Him.
The lady from WIA called me and I have an eligibility/enrollment interview tomorrow and they are going to try to rush me a scholarship. I am in tears because of His Graciousness.

Wonderful news about the scholarship! YAY!
Of course you'll do this! You can do anything you decide to do!
(major bummer about the extended TOM. Hope that disappears ASAP for you! :eek: )

I know you can do this. You are one strong chick! I'm sorry you're going through a rough patch, but just keep putting one foot in front of the other and before too long you'll look back and be amazed at yourself!
