hmmmm. interesting stuff going on.
let's start with YOU first. you say you've been stalled - i'm sort of thinking you've been 'maintaining.' after all, if you haven't gained, that's what you're doing. Yeah, i know you want to be losing, but you're still doing OK. There are a lot of possible reasons for this - stress, eating habits, exercise habits, a combination, medication changes - you know the drill.
should all of this prevent you from being a trainer, especially in the bariatric program? i'd vote NO. You'd be one of the few people who actually understand what the patients are going through - including their emotional states and their fears of exercise.
And perhaps it would keep you motivated as well.
In the states, a lot of nurses are switching to clinical trial managers, to contract research organizations for running clinical trials, into continuing medical education/healthcare communications, and pharma companies. any of that appeal to you?
there are MANY options open to you - but you have to follow your heart and build on your many excellent skills....
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
