Thursday, January 05, 2012
Although I know , I have been battling my weight all my life, I have never in my life been this big. The most I ever weighed was 180 and to me that was obese. Now here I am 223.6 lbs , and I have lost 7 lbs.
In 2008 I weighed 150 lbs, then I went to nursing school. that year I gained, 40 lbs , and by the time I graduated I was 190 , now here I am 2012 and 223.6 ,, and struggling to loose the weight, Strugging to stay motivated, , struggling to find the time to exercise.
I work nights ,and am finding it hard to fall asleep during the day, If I come home and exercise it seems as if it makes it harder to fall asleep. but if I wait till I wake up then there seems to not be enought time to get the house work done, fix dinner and then get ready for work. And forget it if I have to leave the house for anything like grocerie shopping or going out to dinner.
Here it is 2012 , and I am so glad I found Sparkpeople,. 2012 is going to be the year I turn my life around start living healthy and loosing weight that is holding me back. And I hope with sparkpeople to back me I can stay motivated and have the will power to accomplish my goals.
I made it through quitting smoking cold turkey , I quit Sept 13th 2011 , havent had so much as a puff since that day. nor the urge to smoke ,, Although I was sick for 2 months with severe head cold like symptoms , my doctor told me was my withdrawal from smoking.
So I know I can do this , too, as long as I stay motivated .
