I'm neither an RN or in the Richmond, VA area (although I have family there and it is just beautiful there)... I think it is awesome that you are making healthy changes in your life.

Hope you will post often... that is what I try to do and let me tell you, this team has been inspirational on many fronts. This is a great team to be part of. Hope you will like it here!

KHARAHLYN,
Thanks!I'm in Fayetteville, NC (Ft Bragg) and nursing prospects are excellent! The nurses on Ft Bragg recently got a $10,000 annual increase. We're all walking around thinking that we're RICH!

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Congrats on your recommitment! And on the MSN. That is so exciting! I am also an RN - but not in the Richmond (or even VA!) area, but I wanted to say hi, anyways.

BTW, what's it like as far as nursing prospects in NC? What part of NC are you in?

Excellence is the result of caring more than others think wise, risking more than others think safe, dreaming more than others think practical, and expecting more than others think possible.

Hi all! This is my second try at getting back down to 130 pounds. I have been a nurse for more than 10 years in NC. I will be finishing up my MSN within the next couple months... I'm excited. I plan on moving to the Richmond, VA area for a new start on life. My youngest will be graduating from high school this year and I want to make some changes in my life starting with dropping these extra pounds. I lost five pounds last month without exercise or diet pills so if I incorporate exercise and strength training in my daily routine I should be able to achieve my goal. I'm looking for help from my health professional cohorts to motivate me in losing the weight in a healthy way. Also... are there any nurses or health professionals in Richmond that can enlighten me on the employment opportunities? Thanks, I look forward to interacting with everyone!
