Like all women-and particularly nurses-do I put the needs of others so far down the list I needed a map to find them. After many years of neglecting my health and hitting the big 40, I decided to take care of me. I have a very supportive family and boyfriend who are behind me 100%. I have started exercising before I go into work, and am amazed by how much energy I have throughout the day. Obviously the pounds don't drop off like they do on The Biggest Loser, but they are dropping.
My frustration is this-I started a page on FB documenting my journey. I had visions of a supportive community to encourage each good or bad. Didn't turn out that way. Does anyone know of an active on-line community for healthy weight loss? I am so excited about actually doing this for myself and my family, that I don't want to get discouraged before I even start.
