I am a new nurse, wife and mother. Graduated nursing school in may 2012 as well as got married. I found a job right away and work as a cardiac nurse. I recently (Oct 2013) gave birth to the most precious baby girl. Having been a member of Sparkpeople for a very long time I have been on and off the site, my weight has gone up and gone down (mostly up) Since having my daughter and no longer breastfeeding I weighed myself and was shocked to see 194 lbs! For me my scary number has always been 200. ...

I recently (Oct 2013) gave birth to the most precious baby girl. Having been a member of Sparkpeople for a very long time I have been on and off the site, my weight has gone up and gone down (mostly up) Since having my daughter and no longer breastfeeding I weighed myself and was shocked to see 194 lbs! For me my scary number has always been 200. Tis was back in March and I made the decision then I had to do something different, not only for me but my child as well. I am currently 188 lbs but doing it alone isn't easy. So I've once again turned to the help of this amazing site and community to get me to my goal weight which is about 140.

Hey I thought I would add you as a spark friend. I work in Health care and I know how hard it can be to eat healthy while at work. Hope to get to know you.

Welcome to SparkPeople!! This is a wonderful site with so many resources like articles, trackers, and community SparkTeams to help give you support and keep you motivated. See how many SparkPoints you can get each day and this will help you find and use many of the tools of the site. Good job creating a SparkPage as this is how you can have people post to you to help inspire you! Please remember this is a marathon, not a sprint. It is not a diet, but a lifestyle change. I am down 73 lbs with SparkPeople and I feel so much lighter and stronger and healthier every day! You can do it! Best of luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle!

Hi and welcome to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day (If you only drink one now, add to as you are able until you are drinking your 8 cups or more a day), watch your portion control (measure everything in the beginning...guaranteed it will get easier) and walk, dance or do any exercise you enjoy (start with 10 minutes a day or several times a day and add to it as you are able or have time). Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily (guaranteed to work if you use them consistently and honestly). Pick one thing to change...one thing at a time. Don't try to change to many things at once as that can be very overwhelming. Just try to take one step, one minute, one hour, one day, one week at a time. They honestly will all add up to the bigger numbers. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers and increasing your ability to enjoy life. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break...Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals! CONGRATULATIONS on your recent marriage and getting your RN degree...also on a great new job!!!
If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
Hugs,
Helen
