Shared Food Tracker
I am 27 years old, a Registered Nurse in labor and delivery, natural birth fanatic, reader, internet lover, and mom of 4 (among other things). I am 5feet1.5 inches. Before babies, I was 124 pounds, and looked good. I'm starting this journey at the same weight as my prepregnancy weight of baby #4....which is still too high!

I entered that I wanted to lose 50 lbs, and do it 2lbs a week. THe end date it gave me was 8/13/09...which happens to be my baby's second birthday!
I want to lose 50 pounds!
Tracking my food, trying to follow the fat/carbs/protein mix suggested by SP, eating more fruits and veggies, 1 hour of cardio 4-5 days a week, strength training 2x a week, sparkpeople videos a few nights a week
I was never the fat kid, or fat teenager. I was 5'2 and 120lbs in high school, and thought I was fat. (not toned, but not fat for sure). I haven't been 120lbs since I got pregnant with my second baby in early 2002. I was 20 then, and now I'm 27. I will get there again! Hopefully eventually go lower than that, but I can't wait to not be carrying all this weight on my short frame. Just have to remember to endure, and not to expect quick sudden results. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

Hi! I am a night shift labor and delivery nurse, too. I just joined this site last night and I am looking to connect with other nurses that work night and juggle family life, diet, and husbands! Good luck.

Hi Rose! I'm all set up here! I'm pretty sick right now, so I'm going to try and start the exercise on Monday! For now, I will focus on trying to eat a little better and hit the grocery Monday as well.
I hope you have a great weekend! Mandy :-)
