Hello! I am very new here. Had never even heard of this site until yesterday, but so far, I like what I've seen.
I am a married mom to 3 kids; boys ages 13 and 11, and a 6 year old daughter. I work part time as a RN and am working full time toward my Master's in Nursing with plans to work as a Certified Nurse Midwife, hopefully sometime next Spring!
I have battled the same 10 pounds or so since my first child was born and have gained even more over the past year, just from inactivity (many hours spent studying!) and an appetite that won't quit! So, now I need to lose between 20-25 pounds to get back to a healthy BMI. I want to do this to feel better physically and mentally about myself, to be a better example to my children, and to be in better physical shape so that I can be the best midwife I can be! (Sometimes we have to get into some "difficult" positions to birth those babies when moms are pushing on the floor on hands and knees or squatting! LOL!)
My 11 year old son is beginning to have a weight problem, also, so I want to show him some ways to be healthier so he doesn't have to feel badly about himself and feel self-conscious all the time.

I look forward to learning what this site is all about and what is available!
