Removing the Layers

It really pays to make changes in manageable increments... oh, how I have learned this the hard way. This time slow and methodical is the way to go. My focus will no longer be on my shortcomings, but will highlight my lengthening baby-steps. No more gimmicks, no more eating disorders, no more excuses... I can do this!

I recently completed the first of several career-changing steps and am about to launch into the second phase in January... I know that I need the structure and healthy habits in place before the stress builds again. I know this is the place to find the support and tools I need to make it through the next level of nursing school!

My Goals:
Me: The Healthy Version

150-ish pounds
regular exerciser
social
self-confident

I want to be down 150 pounds by September 2014.

I want to ride in a bicycle race...somewhere, somehow...by September 2014

I want to celebrate the end of my RN program with a trip to a beach...and wear a swimming suit and shorts without feeling self-conscious!

My Program:
I've begun again with SP and am working on logging in every day, earning lots of points, carefully monitoring my food intake and keeping a close eye on meeting daily goals.

Due to knee issues I will make modifications to my exercise/activity regimen as needed, but I will strive to be active each day!

Personal Information:
I am a wife and mother of 2 teenaged daughters. I have been through a lot in my life and have finally come through the worst of it. I feel like I am deserving of happiness and cannot wait to have my physical body reflect what I feel inside!

Other Information:
Completed LPN in May.
Starting RN in January.
Finishing BSN in 12-18 months :)

Hopefully by the time I'm 40 I'll finally have my bachelor's degree :)

I'm right there with you! Starting ALL OVER AGAIN! I haven't logged in months and to see the upgrade and the website taking me through the steps as a newbie again kind of made me feel more motivated than ashamed for abandoning SP for soo long. Good luck with your journey! emoticon
