"I don't know why we don't lose weight."

Someone said this to me last night. With all the rain and the full moon and being short-staffed, we were running around like headless chickens.

My answer was "I have."

Fifteen pounds so far. Another fifteen and I'll be at my goal (which is still on the heavy side for my height, but I think I need a little extra weight to do this job. Being a CNA requires a power lifter's body, not a fitness model's.)

The key is not taking in too many calories and getting exercise outside of work. This job will help you lose weight, but it won't do all the work for you.
