I noticed, almost immediately, how easy the pounds began to pile on once I started in my new role. When I started nursing school in 2008 I weighed 150 lb. and had more muscle mass. I'm now almost 40 lbs heavier. I'm depressed and tired all the time. What has this career done to me?

There are overweight cops, school teachers and mechanics.
- Nov 22, '12 by DSkelton711I have doubled my weight in 26 years. Get control of your weight now before it goes any further. Make sure to keep hydrated with water. A lot of my eating came from being tired and feeding my stress instead of exercising it out. Make a game plan for yourself and let it become part of a healthy lifestyle. I don't blame nursing for my weight gain per se, but the stress and being tired all the time didn't help me any. Good Luck!
