    overeating & disgusted

    Hello All, Thanks for your replies..I almost forgot about this thread here. Well, I struggle with some anxiety and depression and it's just gotten worse since starting nursing school. I'm a smart girl (honestly), but it makes me feel like I struggle. I have avoided prescription meds because the last time I used them, is when I gained all of this insane weight and have never been able to fully lose it. I also had bloodwork done and found out that my glucose is slightly high (107 fasting) and so is my testosterone. What does the doc say the solution is...meds... :(...or of course, LOSING weight! I ordered some Fruta Planta off of Amazon and the Pomegranate super pills. They are supposed to be natural..I take 2 a day and I'm back to drinking coffee. I'm not sure if these make me more edgy..but I know that I'm eating significantly less..and perhaps I can at least get down to a reasonable 150 and maintain it. That's better than gaining more..I have been up to 223 in my lifetime..I am trying hard to never hit that again..nursing school has proven me to be so weak. Truly, I start looking halfway decent at 150. I notice when I lose weight I feel like I have a bit more energy...and not to be shallow..but it improves my mentality because I feel better about myself..in control. It's just a hard journey...so I put the scale away and will weigh in in about 2 weeks. I wish I was one of those people who lost insane amounts of weight when stressed....unfortunately that seems to happen to people who are already pretty thin to begin with !

    Ever bought a car through eBay?

    Ugh..I no longer do business with eBay. Steer clear..and especially don't sell anything on there. eBay is bad news all around..and so is Paypal (their sister company). Keep your money safe
  4. Moogie..I can relate! I am not even completing my MSN....I am at LPN level..and it is INSANE. I can ONLY imagine. People just don't get it at all..that makes it harder.

    overeating & disgusted

    I'm a nursing student. I'm disgusted with my nursing program and disgusted with myself for overeating like it's a crack addiction. I stopped drinking coffee because I wanted to calm down..it did help..but out of nowhere I picked up a worse addiction...I eat TONS..even when I am not hungry. Each time I am mad. It's a sickness almost. I have ballooned up to 190 pounds..and I am only 5'4. I was just down to 165...and on my way to losing weight. I'm so nervous I am nearly crying when I eat. What is mentally wrong with me? I can cut out the senseless eating..but losing this weight has proven like a DISEASE I cannot overcome. Thanks for letting me vent. I'm not feeling right tonight. Thanks

    The HCG diet?

    This diet is NOT easy by any means. I've been on it for just under 2 weeks with quite impressive results. I'm monitoring my muscle, etc. Urine sticks...all of that. I have energy..don't feel bad...and hope to report back at the 40 day mark for more solid feedback. I'm taking the sublingual drops. This diet takes a LOT of research and time to fully understand to a science. Not a quick fix by ANY means. :-p

    Are the majority of nurses pro life?

    I see what you are saying Chapis. It makes sense as well. But I honestly know only TWO women that were cases as you described. What you would term as selfish. It's not always so simple. However, I do understand your frustration with seeing it utilized in a not-so-urgent situation. I feel the same way...of course we do. We are on the outside. We aren't in that woman's shoes.

    I'm a pro-choice Christian. I believe a woman has SEVERAL choices. Not all of them are abortion. Do I feel an abortion is "ok" for certain circumstances? Obviously not. But it's not my body, my life, and I'm not walking in that woman's shoes. She is probably in a dire situation and needs support if anything. I feel that God gave us free-will and feels we can make decisions for ourselves. Sometimes they may not be the right ones. Humans make mistakes. Some may not be in dire situations. I will never understand WHY they feel the way they do/don't about abortion. But I am not them...they are not "me". A person really cannot help the way they feel. Sure, life begins @ conception. It is a cell that IS alive. It has the potential to grow into an embryo, then fetus..etc. Hopefully this clears things up when you bump into people that have tried to express this to you. Take Care

    The HCG diet?

    PS. I just found it online for $20+ per bottle. WHAT a difference. Of course you are encouraged to take B12 ( I do now anyway) along with some chinese herbs. It's worth a try! I'm researching it. I don't think I would use it as a lifetstyle..but perhaps in emergencies haha.

    The HCG diet?

    I am actually considering this. I'm on the fence about it, but pretty openminded. I know that there is a great CNHP in the area, and his entire program is $400, which comes with Chinese herbs. I have heard of great results, but I would like to find out from people closer to me. Obviously most of it is due to this calorie restriction. However, if you are quite overweight and supplement resistance training, this 30-40 day program shouldn't really mess you up too much. You don't stay on it forever. Just my opinion...don't hurt me anybody lol

    My partners mother is a Dentist and I'm just a nurse

    Thanks you guys...I'm practicing my smile. I hate being talked down to...especially by someone who make uneducated swipes at me. Regardless if she realizes it or not. She has her pride..and I have mine. Lord forbid she is EVER wrong. Again, good woman, but I hate that side of her.

    I'm a pro-choice Christian. I don't "like" abortion...and I don't think ANYONE does. I think EVERYONE is pro-life. Last time I checked, most of us would like things to result in life, etc. However, this isn't a perfect world, and people have to make decisions that may not be perfect by another persons standards. I am pro-choice NOT because I agree with people who have elective abortions, but because I feel that God thinks we are all good enough to make our own decisions. He gives us free-will and I'll be damned (no pun) if the government doesn't. I don't think I have the ability to participate in an abortion because I am highly sensitive. HOWEVER, if it was an urgent situation and the mother was in dire need..yes, I would. And I would make it as comfortable as possible. God wouldn't be mad at me and I wouldn't be worried about getting into Heaven. He knows our hearts. Sorry, but I hope that, if not in my lifetime, that in my childrens, this issue will not be so taboo. Abortion is VERY common and a part of life for WAY too many women for the ignorance to continue to surround it. I guess no one can EVER truly know what it's like until they walk a mile in a vulnerable, terrified, woman's shoes who is in a very desparate situation with no support.

    New OK Abortion Law and Patient Privacy

    Wow..or maybe they could use that money and HELP any troubled pregnant women out who feel like abortion is their only option and need help with alternatives? It will be a nice day when people stop punishing, judging, and subconsciously treating them like medical "items" and actually CARE to help them. This is absolutely disgusting.
