I believe that it doesn't matter what size you are as long as you are strong enough to do the job, you should go for it. Unfortunately, I have been discriminated against because of my weight. I try not to let it bother me and I try to stay positive. Don't give up on your dreams to be a nurse. Good luck and don't let other people get you down.
