I have been over weight my entire life. I never really saw a problem with it until I got into my teens and everyone was dating except me. In early adult hood I embraced my fuller figure and my confidence sky rocketed. I was the confident "big girl". After my second son was born I was diagnosed with diabetes. That is when I decided the weight had to come off. Over the years I have tried dieting and excercising, often with weight loss. But the weight always seemed to come back. Afte graduating nursing school I decided the time was right, I want to excel in my career and be able to interact with my children without the weight being a burden to me.
