Psyched Nurse

I started Spark a couple years ago and lost about 40 pounds. I was quite happy with the tools on this free site. During Nursing school, I fell into my bad habits and gained the weight back and a few more.

I started Spark a couple years ago and lost about 40 pounds. I was quite happy with the tools on this free site. During Nursing school, I fell into my bad habits and gained the weight back and a few more.

I am proud of my success in my Nursing career, I passed my Boards and am now a Psychiatric Nurse, as of July 2010. I work second shift and realize that this is an opportunity to get into better habits. My daughter is also interested in a healthier lifestyle, so we are a Mother Daughter Spark team.

I find the hardest thing for me is late at night, after a stressful evening at work, I wind down and tend to eat late. When I come home, I have been jumping onto Spark to input my food intake and it seems to motivate me and keep me away from snacking. I also have been making sure that I am snacking before I leave work, otherwise it has been 6 - 7 hours since I ate dinner. So I am naturally hungry.

The key for me to losing weight is planning. Other habits I am aware of that don't work:
- eating in front of the TV
- lack of fiber
- lack of water
- sweet tooth
- motivation to move and have an exercise program - which is probably the biggest factor and is also tied into planning.
-Hx of Yo-Yo dieting

Positives for me
- I do not drink sweet carbonated beverages
- I have a good knowledge of nutrition
- I am in good health - knees and all
- I am making more money to afford better foods
- family support
- success in the past
