Thank you! My husband has always been really athletic and fit so what weight he does gain just falls off lol. I have decided to only weigh myself once a month if that. I really do feel better already. I can do a lot more just from the past few weeks working out. The Holiday weight is the worst. That used to be a big problem of mine but this year wasn't so bad because I didn't have much of an appetite. Good luck with your goals!

It's not as bad as one would think. It's fun and informational. There's a lot of science behind it but I was expecting that. You should go for it! Find the right school though and find out what your states requirements are to become a certified nutritionist. Some schools will give you a degree and the classes you need to take the certification exam but they don't actually give you the exam. That's the kind of school I am going to, I will have a bachelors degree and I will have all the knowledge to take the exam but they don't offer the exam to get certified.

Its Good to see your back, I so glad you beat this. You are strong and dont worry about the weight cause it takes time to work it off, You didnt gain it over night even if it feels like it, you didnt, So just take your time and as long as your do your best in a workout you will feel and see the change See I've started doing my workout again after gaining the HOLIDAY WEIGHT and now I have to lose it. I dropped 5lbs of it and now Im dropping inches, So dont get discouraged if you dont see the scale move try tracking it with the inches you lose and guys and that dang P90. of course their gonna drop pounds men drop lbs just by sitting on the couch. So getting up and really working out like P90 oh yea your gonna drop them lbs and your gonna drop them fast. No us girls with kids we have to workout till we cant breath anymore just to work off the dang bag of chips we ate yesterday. Whats that all about. I tried it and man its to much for me I stick to Turbo Jam, Zumba, Bike, and my best friend The Treadmill. Oh well Do what makes you feel good and remember if you did it ounce you can do it again, even if it takes time.

Hello ladies, it's been a very long time since I have been on here. I started on Spark People a few years ago after I had My son *who is now two and a half* to lose all of my post pregnancy weight. I did really well for a very long time and even got down to 135, ten pounds above my goal weight. I also decided that I wanted to become a nutritionist and I am currently working on my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition. But tragedy struck last year in June when I was diagnosed with Hodgekins Lymphoma a very curable type of Cancer. I was immediately put on six months of chemotherapy. It was awful, people kept saying how strong I was but inside I didn't feel strong at all and all the while I was gaining weight from the steroids I was given before each treatment. I gained 30 pounds while on Chemo and I couldn't do anything about it. I couldn't believe it. Here I am though, six months later and I have been handed a card saying I'm cancer free. I have been working out for the past two weeks and I can see an improvement in my body and energy but the scale doesn't agree. I know I shouldn't let the scale rule my life but it's hard when I'm so curious. I could really use some support.My Husband has been great with all of it but he is doing P90X and I can't handle that right now. I have been taking it easy with my workouts and will continue to do so until I feel comfortable pushing a little harder. He is going to have no problem getting in shape but I feel like I am going to take forever. I feel silly considering that I will be a nutritionist in about a year and I can't even help myself very well. It's not the nutrition part of it, it's the working out and feeling good about myself. It's been hard but I'm hoping to start coming on here more again.Anyway, it's good to be back and it feels good to be working my way toward healthy and fit again, but it's been a rough year. Hope all is well.
