I'm Back

I've been going through a funk lately and on the edge of depression.  I graduated from nursing school and started working full-time at the hospital.  I'm currently working night shift and am having a real hard time adjusting.  I've been second guessing this career and am feeling like it was a mistake.  I hate to think that after putting in 3 years of school that it was a mistake.

In the meantime, working nights I find myself eating some really unhealthy foods just to keep me awake and my exercise is walking the halls of the hospital.  I realize that I have two options, 1.) To sit and mope and feel sorry for myself, or 2.) To get up off of my a$$ and get this weight off and find my happy place.  I took the first step Monday morning and that is stepping on the scale and facing the number that I had been avoiding all of this time.  I stepped on the scale and tears started flowing.  I couldn't believe that I had let myself go so much.  The highest number I have ever seen on the scale flashed before me, 288 pounds.

I decided to start back up with My Fitness Pal and purchased a Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor.  If you are on MFP I would love to be friends.  Here's my page
I'm counting calories and watching the carbs for a little while to cut back on the cravings.  We're going to be going on a family vacation to Disney World in July and I really want to feel comfortable in my own skin before we go.  That is just one thing that will be keeping me motivated to succeed.

I want to say Thank You to all of my loyal followers!  I'm looking forward to catching up with some fellow weight loss bloggers.
