How many times can one start over? I'm remarried and not happy with myself. Time to work on me. Planning on get to the gastric sleeve done as soon as I can, an have to get into working out regularly or I'm going to be nothing but hanging skin. So I'm doing it again. I'm keeping my goals down to earth. I just want to breath again. I was doing really well and wound up getting sick, so I slacked really bad last year. I need to get with the program once again. There's a job I want to get into and you can't be in critical care nursing and not be able to run. So here goes..... Ha! Update: no sleeve, too much scar tissue in my abdomen. And I got the critical care job and have now wound up in dialysis thanks to that experience and Ike it soo much better

Member Since: 1/2/2009

Fitness Minutes: 3,170

My Goals:
My goal is to drop at least 80 more pounds in the next 6 to 8 months, and firm up. I want to be able to run again. I would love to just run without killing myself or give my self a black eye.

My Program:
I'm eating a lot more organic foods. Fresh meats and raw veggies. I'm trying to eliminate carbs, but so far all ive done is go completely to whole wheat and gluten free stuff.

Personal Information:
I'm a recently single mom of two grown men now. They are 18 and 20 adn one is getting ready to get married. I am a full fledged RN, for teh past three years. So all I do there is quick bursts of movement and sitting in front of a computer charting. I love my job though. I wish life could've happened differently but it all goes the way the divine wants it too

    Canceling WOW? You go girl, what a great step . Are you hired as a cardiac nurse, or is that your game plan? Either way, we are nurses, and nurses aren't perfect, but I understand your point about feeeling hypocritical when educating patients. I think SP is fantastic and a great motivator. Talk to you soon I hope.
