Gettin' Fit Stat!

I have a fairly classic story considering I have struggled with weight woes since childhood.

In early 2012 I learned that I have a mildly under active thyroid. Despite this news I'm determined to successfully lose weight and hoping I will not require lifetime medication.

Joined SP years ago but wasn't very active. Here to share my journey. If i can do it anyone can.

Congratulations on graduating! I'm sure you'll do great on your exit exam. What's strange is I hear so much about exit exams but I don't think my school has any exit exams. We just do our two years, graduate, then take the NCLEX in August from what I understand.
I'm almost done with my first year! June 8th is my final, then I'm done. YAY. I'm applying for nurse tech jobs and I had an offer last monday but it was a nursing home and I had an interview scheduled with a hospital so I told them I'd let them know. I found out yesterday I wasn't selected for the hospital, but they might be opening one more position and I am one of 2 candidates if they do open the position. I decided to go ahead and start the process for working for the nursing home, since who knows how long the hospital will take and I may not even get the job. But then the nursing home said they hired more nurse techs and they don't know if they have any more room, that they'd check with HR and call me back today. They still haven't called....so we will see. I'm nervous!
I hope to move next month, after school is out - so pray that I will find a good place to move into, hopefully a house for rent.
Congratulations again and good luck with your exit exam! I'll pray for you.

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my sparkpage. I was down to 167 at one point but for some reason since December I haven't really budged on the weight loss. I keep going up down up down up down. I have had a hard time getting a handle on my eating. I'm still exercising regularly and doing a good job in that department, but I just have been binge eating way too often, and been having a hard time getting back to where I was with discipline on NOT eating anymore when I knew I'd be over in calories. I just can't stop myself from eating anymore, I don't know why. I'm trying so hard lately too but I just keep losing control. Not sure what it's gonna take to get back on track. I even try PLANNING my meals and MAKING myself stick to my plan, but come afternoon it's RUINED. I keep trying different strategies but nothing seems to work. Plus I was dumb yesterday and gave in to the sale - 3.99 for a dozen of donuts. I ate half a dozen this morning. Even though I said I'd only eat 2...I couldn't stop myself from wolfing them down! I'm trying to redeem myself for the rest of the day but having a hard time. This weekend I was terrible, and yesterday I was terrible. I had like 3 pieces of pie last night at a church thing (well, one big piece on my own, I shared another piece with my daughter, then brought another piece home and ate it cause they were giving out the pie cause they had too much). It's weird but ever since I found out my blood sugar was REALLY low even after I just ate 30-45 minutes before, I've mentally given myself a license to eat and eat and eat and eat...........I guess cause I decided that must be the reason I am constantly hungry, and gave my constant hunger control over me again. Before, I was just ignoring my hunger and sticking to the calorie amounts I knew I should have, figuring that eventually my stomach would shrink and I wouldn't be as hungry. But now I'm just losing control like all the time; I can't seem to stop. GRRR


I'm so excited for you, SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO soon and you'll be a nurse!
