Bring It On Down

I am a 61 year old psych nurse with 2 children in college. I have run the gamut of fad diets and gimmicks. My greatest and longest success was with WeightWatchers. Unfortunately, boredom, stress, and frustration are my downfalls. I'm hoping that SparkPeople, connections with friends old and new, and the electronic tracking will help me stay motivated and get in shape.

Hi Deb. I'm new to spark and was trying to find some friends to help with motivation. I saw your page and that you work as a psych nurse and live in Maine. I live in Maine and work in healthcare as well. I thought we might have some things in common. emoticon

DEBS any time I have no clue where you are but I am in Augusta, and I walk the rail trail. I am way older than you 68 years young and really bad with the computer it takes me all day and wears me out. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
No boredom, some loneliness kids all had to leave the state to find decent jobs. HUGS Pat emoticon emoticon

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I noticed from your picture you are a nurse, so out of the 150 comments I got, I picked yours as one of those I responded to, becuaue I have so much respect for nurses. Thanks for all you do, for the compassion you show and for the care you give to all of us who go to the doctor or the hospital and are scared and worried. We appreciate you!
