Second career mom

Update 4/12/14: Another sister joined Sparkpeople and she goes by ALICIA363. I am puttering along, mostly for the community. I do track my fitness, but tracking food tends to backfire on me. When I try to track food, I will just not eat because I don't want to track it. I found that to be true when I had to do it for a Lifetime Fitness class, and when I tracked I was only eating 1000-1200 calories. I am starting to develop the ability to notice when I am full and stop eating. When I ...
Update 4/12/14: Another sister joined Sparkpeople and she goes by ALICIA363. I am puttering along, mostly for the community. I do track my fitness, but tracking food tends to backfire on me. When I try to track food, I will just not eat because I don't want to track it. I found that to be true when I had to do it for a Lifetime Fitness class, and when I tracked I was only eating 1000-1200 calories. I am starting to develop the ability to notice when I am full and stop eating. When I don't, and overeat, I feel miserable, and that has kept me accountable for the most part. I think too, I am happier living on my own, away from my STBX. I know nutritionally I could still improve my choices, but for now, I am not arguing that I feel better and the scale is ever so slowly showing smaller numbers.

Update 3/3/2014: Now living in Iowa, where I got my first PTA (Physical Therapist Assistant) job. In the process of getting divorced, and 13 yr old son moved to Iowa with me last week. I started my job on November 22, and have loved almost every minute of it. The minutes I haven't loved are things that are annoyances that come with any job.

I lived in Nebraska and completed an Associate's degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant in March 2013. As of August 5th, 2013 I am licensed in the State of Nebraska.

Part of my motivation to join Sparkpeople was that while I was on my final clinical rotation Jan-March 2013, I lost 11.8 pounds. My profile pic is after that loss, but my "starting point" from here forward. I would like to lose more, but most definitely I want to keep it off.

For those of you who have been around for awhile, or if you wonder who the heck I am, I may have come across something you posted on one of my sibling's pages. ONEKIDSMOM is my sister and MOBYCARP is my brother. Now they have me sparking too. Currently I am mostly puttering, but at least trying.

Well, I see by your sisters' comments you feel defeated WAY more than you OUGHT to (which is NEVER). You sure seem like such a wonderful person just like the other members of your family on spark. So I am banking that with enough of the truth thrown at you....that you ARE such a fine young person...you will come to believe it just like I have come to believe that I WILL get to HEALTHY BMI goal weight too! We can work together.

And I will repeat, you write wonderfully...it must be a "gift" your family has!

You must be close to my boys' ages...40s.

I hope you do get to read all the coconut oil info. That's a bummer about your internet...and I thought mine was bad emoticon

The decision is yours to try or not I just know for me it has been what I have looked for for the past 40 years at least. My younger son weighs 385 and "can't lose any weight" (his words) and he just yesterday bought coconut oil for the first time so I am praying it helps his "constant hunger" like it has mine. And I will keep praying for him and you.

Hope your day is lovely as you are....and don't listen to those thoughts from the enemy that you are defeated or anything else!

emoticon you are a conqueror! (this is my fav emoticon...says it all)

I figure when they see me on the stage and hear the dates, it will be clear that I have maintained. emoticon But I might slip that in somewhere! Thanks for the suggestion.
