Goal Weight:130.0 lb
following: nurselnels's own diet
performance: gaining 1.1 lb a week

I am 48 years old and am 5'3" and I am a nurse. I have 5 children but raised 8. I decided to start working our last Christmas (2009) when we got a Wii fit plus. I started to lose some weight. Then I got a smart phone with this app on it and synchronized it to this website. I really enjoy being here and working on some of the challenges. They keep me motivated. My ultimate goal is to lose 140 lbs. This is my plan to prevent diabetes. Had gestational diabetes with my last child and that sets me up to potentially have type II diabetes now that I am older. I wanted to avoid that so it finally hit me that I needed to lose the weight. I wanted to see if I could do it on my own before I considered any surgical procedure. I like this website because of all the great stories that I read about people and it gives me inspiration and I hope that I can do the same for others.

I am In Need of Prayers because I am Haveing major Health issues
I saw this post on another buddies posts; I am a nurse as well as LDS, prayers are very important but I have seen a lot of people post stuff regarding GERD but it sounds more like Gallbladder issues to me. I had suffered these same types of symptoms. I would have such awful pain that I would vomit every night then by around 5 or 6 in the morning the vomiting and pain would stop. It is caused by a a gallstone blocking the duct when the gallbladder is trying to send bile after a meal with a lot of fatty foods. People who are overweight are at higher risk for gallbladder problems. You need to see a doctor and probably have it removed. Prayers to you my friend, please get it checked out by a doctor. It can be diagnosed with an ultrasound.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh everyday on my Wii. That way I see where my patterns of losing and gaining are.
