    Wow guys! Hi!!! I know I've been completely sporadic and I'm afraid that may continue. However, while I was MIA I finished up school, passed my boards, got my RN license, and got a job at the Neonatal ICU at the hospital I wanted to work at! WooHoo!!! (I start the 24th!) I'm soooooooo excited!!!

    As far as healthy goes . . . I have been absolutely horrible lately due to stress and having no time. I am moving though to the city that I am going to work in and I am hoping that helps. I will be away from the negative influences and really on my own completely, so that should help!!! I can't wait!

    Well, must run, busyiness continues. Hope y'all are doing awesome!!!

    Take care & HUGS!

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry, I'm so sporadic in checking in. I am back to walking as of this week. I am also back to making healthier diet choices as of this past Saturday.

    I had the one patient come through, that God used to snap me back. I am grateful.

    My love to you all.
    Sincerely,
    Gentle

    All is well with me. I'm on vacation, so I'm kind of 50/50 with the diet exercise thing, but that's what vacations are for.

    Tweety,

    That's what vacations are for--to relax and enjoy. Enjoy my friend. Glad to know that you are well.

    I've got news!!!! They're doing "Ultimate Loser" at work!!! Which is on par with The Biggest Loser show!! It's just the motivation I needed. We start January 12th, and we have challenges throughout the entire 12 weeks of the program!! They even gave us a list of the foods that would be the most beneficial in order to lose the most weight. The "Ultimate Loser" gets $3000, and if, after the 12 weeks are over, and at the last weigh-in, the person has lost even more weight, that person gets $1000 more.

    I'M SO EXCITED!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!

    Best time to change my lifestyle.

    Hello all,

    Struggling with my own diet but doing okay nonetheless. I still haven't gained all the weight back from 1 year ago, so if I can continue to improve my habits maybe I will drop more weight and be stable by the end of 2009 as well.

    Don't get me wrong, I haven't kept off all the weight I'd lost. I think I gained back about 6lbs total but that is a net loss of 4lbs, which is still good for me. Especially considering I've already made it through Halloween with cheating - serious cheating and some stress eating.

    (I go both ways depending on how bad the stress is. When my stress is severe, I don't eat well at all. I am usually nauseous. When I am moderately stressed, I eat lots of junk food looking for comfort. )

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I am grateful for everyone's support here. I couldn't have gotten this far without you.

    Hi everyone!

    Hi beautifulblair, nice to meet you.

    I'm off vacation and back on a vegetarian diet. I hope to go to the gym, but am having jet lag and trouble sleeping at night, but I need to drag my butt there anyway. I walked a lot in Thailand, but ate a lot too.

    Hi Dolling, I am a lot like you. I am cheating again lately! Stupid holidays lol... Well hopefully won't mess up too too bad... haven't regained my weight because I am being a bit careful and not going ALL out. But - it is a constant battle. It makes me mad sometimes!
