Talking Always been "fluffy"- Ready for change...

I'm Danielle and am from TN. Those who have lived, drove through, or even heard of the South know we love our fried foods.. and I'm a BIG fan. But there-in lies my problem. I've had 2 kids 20 months apart and am an RN working nights in surgery. SO.. I'm exhausted during the days and work at night while my husband finishes his bachelors degree this year for his "2nd" career... I've never been afraid of anything and am the oldest child and extrovert of 4 introvert siblings. I've been able to conquer smoking, drinking and not be a loon. My last mountain is the one made of bread. I am always one to but DVD's, equipment, and heck- even bought a 2 year membership to Curves- but never used them and didnt go. My motivation to work on myself is at an all time low. I am here to bang my head and jog to AC-DC and Halestorm.

Welcome!

Yup, we've got nurses here ... and others who struggle with eating on shift. I'm sure you'll find lots of good tips and encouragment. Drop in as often as you are able. We're glad you're here.

Welcome to the forum!
Do you know what food plan you are going to follow? There is a ton of information about many different food plans on this site. Pick a plan that fits in your lifestyle and you can follow long term. I chose calorie counting because it is free and flexible. It allows me to eat almost anything I wanted as long as it fits within my calorie range for the day and there are ton of free apps out there to help you track your food.
Give up the sugary drinks and drink lots and lots of water.
Incorporate some exercise into your weekly routine. You do not have to join an expensive gym try to walk more, use the stairs more, download videos off of YouTube or Hulu.com to work out to. There are a lot of things you can to do with spending a ton of money.
Lastly, if you have a bad meal, a bad day, heck, a bad food week. Do NOT let this be a reason to throw in the towel. Get back on track at the next meal. You can do this!!!
Best of luck to you!

Danielle, welcome, glad to have you join us. If you gave up smoking and drinking you can do this too! I suggest you look for a Challenge or Support group to join; small check-in groups make it easier to connect, get involved, and be accountable. We have groups centering around specific diets plans, themes, or age groups, so find one that inspires you and just post to join!
