I’m coming up on 5 years since I became a Registered Nurse and 2 years since I obtained my BSN.
I married the love of my life at the age of 19. I had 2 children before going to college and 3 when I went back to school for my RN and BSN.
Why am I posting this for all of you to know....
If you want something, you go after it! Just because something may be hard, doesn’t mean you can’t do it! If you’ve ever been through nursing school, you know it’s not easy. Now try adding three kids into the mix, going for your practical nursing degree, Associated degree in nursing, and then your bachelors! Then add in boards, twice, once for LPN and then again for RN.
I told myself, I will get back to my pre pregnancy weight! It may have taken time, and it definitely took hard work and lots of self control... but when you want something, you do it! Not only did I get to my pre pregnancy weight, I surpassed it by 6 pounds!
Never give up on yourself! Go after your dreams, you’re worth it!
