Hello! E here! I am 28 years old and originally started losing weight for Graduation in May 2009. Since that date has passed, I am just trying to lose the weight to have a healthier lifestyle and to love the body I see when I look in the mirror. I took a break from Sparkpeople and transitioned to MyFitnessPal, but I have not been successful at losing weight. I gained 30lbs when I was in nursing school due to stress eating and lack of exercise and then found out I was pregnant in April 2015, right before nursing school graduation. I delivered my baby girl in December 2015. I am trying Sparkpeople again and hopefully will have a successful journey. I am VERY ready to lose weight & get back into athletic shape. Also!

    I only know that cause most people from my high school went there for nursing and I heard it all the time from guidence dept. I don't know. I've concidered doing it. But it wouldn't be a permanant career goal. I really need to find a job that I can support myself with. I got a letter today from that mortgage company I was trying to get a job at cause its 13.50 an hour. I didn't get it. I'm devastated. I don't know what to do cause I need to make money NOW! Its hard to survive on minimum wage.

    By the end of the year I have to find my own apartment. I live with a roommate right now and he wants to live on his own or move far away. I have nowhere to go but to find my own place. Its hard right now. emoticon

    Elgin Community College (the community college for Kane County IL) has the best nursing school in the state! I live two minutes from it (unfortunately I dont go to school at all ) emoticon That school is expanding so fast. Its going to be and illinois university in no time! Just like University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, it started as a community college.

    Hey girl. I'm trying to get 250 minutes of cardio in per week. And I only started strength training recently. I'm hoping to start getting 4 days per week. Only have been doing 2 days. And I have become terrible at keeping track of my food so that's my next challenge. emoticon
