Back at it! I'm here for probably the same reason(s) most everyone else is---for a CHANGE!

Being a new RN is tough. What's tougher is trying to change an unhealthy lifestyle when you've been using it as a crutch for reasons no one can see. I believe in support and that it really does change lives.

That's why I'm here. I want to change. I don't want to be defined or held down by my struggles any longer.

NUTRITION
*IIFYM and counting cals
*Eat clean
*Low-glycemic (I have PCOS/metabolic syndrome)
*MORE VEGGIES!

Personal Information:
I am a newly licensed Registered Nurse (RN) who desperately needs to stay on track of getting healthy while starting this new, stressful career.

Outside of nutrition/diet/weight loss...

I love antiques, crafting and repurposing. My creativity makes me extremely happy! Just recently became VERY interested in hiking after traversing Mt Lemmon in Tucson.

Last, but not least...

I need to make friends. I think that has been my downfall in my weight loss/healthy lifestyle journey. I really don't have many friends who can relate to me or understand the struggles of being more than 100 pounds overweight. So that's another goal!

Other Information:
Things that make me happy:

*aromatherapy
*Halloween
*rescuing animals
*sewing, knitting
*soccer
*music (I love bluegrass, classical, Indie, Bollywood, and reggaeton to get me going)
*Christmas
*thrifty shopping
*antique hunts
*genealogy

My back injury so I've started my own business, selling recycled ecojewelry. I'm loving everything about it and it's so green it's right up my alley! Are you still being crafty?

I can only type short comments for some reason which is a problem since I'm so chatty haha. My sis is an ICU nurse and I don't know how you nurses do it! I'm so glad the trainer is so nice and helpful. You are going to rock this! I'm still working on
