    When my plate is full: Job, school, work I set aside a 30 min hard workout to help work off steam. Even if you just walk for 30 min you can listen to vocab recording for school. Helps me feel double productive!

    It can be done:

    Add veggies
    Drink water
    1 Cup of coffee a day
    take the stairs
    add fruit
    If you have a day off do Yoga!
    Drink more water
    Vending machine are evil ( it may be hard but stay away)
    Plan, Plan Plan ( I save money by bring snacks to work and school)
    Drink water

    Smile No regrets, if you have an off day or meal acknowlege it then move on.

    Lost 20 pounds this year, mostly combination of exercise and not eating enough during clinicals. feels great but finding clothes that fit has become somewhat a chore

    Just plain don't have time to eat, and don't think about it half the time, because I'm doing other stuff. Posting here is a guilty pleasure I take a break to do once in a while

    I lost weight in nursing school for a few reasons. I was much more active running around the hospital and when I did eat I usually just had a salad because lets face it hospital food stinks and there is no time to run and get fast food. The weight loss was temporary unfortantly after I graduated I got a job at a school and sit around most of the day eating all the yummy treats in the office. I am now thinking I need to go back to nursing school so I can loose some weight.

    I've gained. Before school started, I was a marathon runner and was always training for something. I no longer have the time to even think about races and can barely get in 3 or 4 miles. I am still walking the dog every day, but the activity level has dropped a ton and eating hasn't. Guess I'd better rethink how much I eat now.

    Yep, this was me....I was bit stocky to begin with, nursing school did not help LOL.
    I relate to the cartoon, I worked full time while going to nursing school part time, and now I am obese...but...I have to own up that I did not exercise, and still have not done so.
    Now I am a bit stressed out because I am not finding a job...I know I know...excuses excuses.

    Wow, I would love to be 176...and have a flat stomach. Is like this, I will never be 115, but can I be heavy and still look good in clothes? For this, I need a tummy tuck, but first to lose weight...wow, so hard.
