Hi, just to introduce myself. I am 38 years old, been married to my wonderful husband for more years than I can count and have a 18 year old son. I have been working in the medical field for 18 years and graduated as a Registered Nurse in 2005. I worked part time at a local hospital & I enjoyed my experience there, but moved on to Adult Foster Care where I am the sole nurse & absolutely love it. I love being a nurse, I love helping others, but it is very frustrating that I struggle to help myself. Tired of the old line "do as I say, not as I do." I am the youngest of 7 girls and have struggled with weight all of my life. I enjoy camping and fishing, but enjoy reading & geneology research most of all. I tend to live a sedentary lifestyle, in other words I am a couch potato. I am getting off the couch for healthy living!!!
I have had the Lap Band surgery October 8, 2008. It sure has been a long process & have hit quite a plateau only losing 40 lbs, then I have gone up & down with my weight. Had a conversion from lap band to Gastric Bypass in August of 2011. My main issue is family support & lifestyle. I find it difficult to get motivated after work to exercise. I think about doing it, but just dont want to move.
Thanks for visiting...Maria
