New to Fitday
I've battle with my weight since I was a little , I now weigh 199.5, and am having the hardest time getting back down into the 180's. I work the night shift and its hard to figure out when I'm suppose to eat or sleep. I have no rhythm to my life whatsoever...So hopefully journaling and support here can help me in some way. I'm excited to see what's to come..from what I've read everyone seems really supportive! :)

Welcome to FitDay.

I've worked second and third shift in the past--I agree there are some challenges to face, but then, there are challenges for us day time workers as well.

I do remember that I used to get by on less sleep working nights, which isn't good. I did used to do my daily walk at 6:00 am when I got out, before having "breakfast".

It's hard but I think if you could figure out some sort of semi-firm schedule you might find it easier.

Do try logging everything (food and exercise) in FitDay--I think you'll find it in invaluable aid. Spend some time reading the forums, there is lots of great advice and some terrific people here.
