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
