I am 57 years old a Registered Nurse that works full time in Pediatric ICU . I have done this for over 30 years now and I eat on the run , I can down a meal before you have yours loaded on your plate. I also have learned the bad habit of grazing on bad carbs at work because they were fast and easy ! So I have made a promise to myself to lose weight , get healthy and slow down and taste what I am eating !

My Goals:
I started walking slowly almost a year ago after developing a lung problem . I still get very short of breath and my heart rate can get really high but I am determined to get back to where I was before! Last week I finally was able to make it 4 miles in one walk . I can't do it all the time but was so excited to make it once! Now to stay heathy and off steriods ! Loss 25-30 pounds and I will be one happy granny!

My Program:
I get up most mornings at 4 am before work and go to the gym and walk 1.5 -2 miles and do some light cardio then I go to work from 7am to usually 8 pm and if I can I try to go back to the gym and get the other mile or so in . Some days it just doesnt' happen . I am eating a low carb diet and drinking lots of water!
