    Losing weight so im slim when I qualify as a nurse.

    Well as the title explains my goal is to lose weight, so that I look fabulous when I graduate as a nurse.

    I have recently completed a fast track access course as well as working 60 plus hours. During this time my weight has increased to a now, as of Monday 14st 11lbs.

    I start university in September and at least want to lose a stone and half by then. Plus continue to lose weight while I train to become a nurse.

    I started Monday and so far so good ive stuck to the plan and im feeling so much better.

    Would love some encouragement along the way.

    I have about 3-4 stone to lose as well. How fab we can keep each other going along the way.

    Im so excited about starting and just want to get stuck in now. Also dont want to be huge in my nurses uniform. I dont think having a new bf and doing the access course fast track helped my weight.

    I ate out so much and bf cooks all the time for me. Going to put some ww friendly items in his house.

    Yeah, 3rd year is no walk in the park at all. Am happy to share experiences via pm so if you have any questions about anything just shout. I know you will have done biology in the access course, but keep building on it in the first 2yrs, you will be thankful for it come year 3! - I came across a great forum - Student Nurse - if your not already signed up to it it is worth a look

    Food diary is looking fab.. we will soon have this weight off. xx

    I shall sign up to that forum as it sounds really interesting thank you. I had to take extra biology during access as my uni requested it. I received distinction across all thr biology as it's a subject I really love.

    I have sushi to eat today and I'll make my packed lunch as im out working from 10 til 10 today.

    Im looking forward to weigh in on monday. Hows your week going so far?

    Lots of incentives to keep you on the straight and narrow. How fabulous planning a wedding and starting university. Im so excited to start university that im counting the day :-).

    Im sure the booklet the uni gave us said to order bigger uniform as most people expand. Which really made me stop and think.

    Yes my week went well thanks. I have been so busy with work that I have not been online for a few days, but determined to be better this week with logging. I kept my WW tracker up to date and stayed within my points so all is good

    How are things going with you? x
