Just wondering if there are any other fellow nurses looking to drop some weight in 2006.
I'll start with a little bio- I'm married to a great man who is a little overweight , but can eat 3 times what I do and never put that much. But to be totally honest, he is 32 so there is a "little" belly. Him not watching his diet when I'm trying soooo hard is difficult. He is supportive though.
We have 3 girls, 11, 7 and 5. All have thin builds (Thank God) and are fair to good eaters. I have had to work through the supper meal time crunch. Me eating healthy and them eating some veggies and other things that I'm always tempted to eat.
No for me,
As a child I was never overweight. But after I had my first daughter, I never lost my "baby weight", 2nd and 3 rd the same story. So here I am at least 60 pounds from where I need to be.
I received my ADN in 1998 and worked at a small town hospital for 4 years. All 3 shifts, no sleep, understaffing, and politics took there toll. Needless to say when you are tired (You know how tired I mean) and just trying to get by, you really don't care what you eat.
Currently I'm working in a dialysis unit Monday, Wednesday and Fridays and it's great! I have been here for over 4 years and I love my patients and knowing that I'm making such a big difference in all their lives. Our support staff is great and for the most part I enjoy my co-workers.
I would love to make some friends who are really trying to make a difference in their own lives and would like some support along the way! I turned 32 last month and realized that , Hello, not getting any younger
I need to practice what I preach!
Love to have anyone join, nurse or not!
