Beth's new life

Hi. I'm a 46/divorced/female from Iowa (Quad-Cities). I am a Certified Dialysis Nurse and am evening charge nurse where I work. I love dialysis nursing but hate the ramifications of my hours. I work 10-11 hour days and eating is sporadic to say the least. You can't eat when you're hungry so you shovel in a bunch of saltines or whatever else is available at the time and then when you do get a break it's always interrupted and you have to eat fast. I also find it difficult cooking for one ...

I also find it difficult cooking for one so often times I'm getting take out.

I've been overweight most of my adulthood and am tired of it. I have a problem with getting motivated to move. I don't think I eat that much but obviously I am since I'm gaining weight. Sooooooo I figured I'd join and track things and see just exactly how much I am putting into my mouth and the beneifts of tracking nutrition/health.

I've been thinking about bariatric surgery but am on the fence with this one. I guess we're all looking for that quick fix, eh?
