Nurses 4 Ever Fit™ Challenge

According to a research study published by NCBI, almost 54% of nurses are overweight or obese. Fifty-three percent of these nurses report that they are overweight but lack the motivation to make lifestyle changes. Why?

Nurses are great care takers of everyone else but statistic show they do not always do the same for themselves. They tend to nurture others while putting themselves last. Because of this, obesity is becoming an epidemic in the field of nursing as well. Long erratic hours, lack of rest, and the inability to stop for a decent meal all contribute.

  1. I have a cholesterol level of 250. I’m so ashamed and scared. I’m participating in the challenge with goals of healthy eating and exercising. I will be up by six am tomorrow to power walk 3 laps in the morning on my days off and three laps in the evening after work.
