Well, it sounds to me like you are one stressed young woman. You took on married life and nursing school in the same year! As a nurse, and a nursing instructor I know the stresses of this education. Marriage itself is a stressor that first year. So you have a double whammy to deal with. My only advise is to remember to take care of YOU along the way. Nurses often forget that if they don't take care of themselves, no one else will, and they end up getting burned out. You will have a ton of studying to do, which means lots of book and computer time...but remember to eat and get up and move around when feasible.
Congratulations on the wedding and best wishes for your nursing education. It is a terrific career with a lot of options for you in the future!!!

I know what you mean, everyone has good weeks and bad weeks. It takes some time to get into a schedule. Finding foods you like, finding exercises you like, and finding something within you that makes you want to change.
Good luck in reaching all of your goals!
MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs
5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!
If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!
Im 25 and am a newly wed and first year nursing student! I am finding it sooooo hard to stay motivated with my diet and exercise. I wouldnt consider myself to be obese or necessarily overweight....however, according to the BMI, I am not where I should be for my height. I have good weeks where I eat healthy and go to the gym everyday and then there are those weeks, where my routine gets tweaked and I end up going days eating bad and not going to the gym. I need advice and ways to improve my health. I am 25 and should feel good in my skin, especially during this summer season in a bathing suit...but to be honest..I DONT! So please help...
