Typical frustrated post

Fat fat fat fat fat.

I wanted to lose five pounds before leaving for Florida next week. Instead, I gained four.
What is wrong with me?!

Here's the main problem. I recently had another round of final exams. That is a point in the year when I do one of two things: Starve myself of any significant calories, pound coffee and hit the books hard, OR, eat everything in sight to avoid studying and coast through finals not caring if I actually get A's in all of my classes.

The biggest problem was, I couldn't get all A's. I had two classes in which no matter how well I did on the final, I would still be a point or two short of an A. Which meant I could coast into B's in those classes, and I didn't have to do too well to get A's in the others. So instead of studying, I sat on my couch, avoiding studying, and stuffing my face full of buffalo chicken dip. For 6 days straight.

I then had two days of restricting, then husband and I went to visit some friends for the weekend which involved a lot of food and a lot of beer. And so, getting home on Sunday night, I decided to weigh myself and I was up to a disgusting number. I brought it down two pounds in the past two days by being reasonable with food and getting some exercise, but not where it needs to be. Ugh, I wish I wasn't leaving for an athletic event and I could just starve myself for a week. At least I have an excuse to exercise like crazy for the next 7 days.


  1. I am desperate to get some weight off before my vacation but I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen. Good luck to you! I'm sure you can do it.

  2. Omg I can totally relate to you... My life was exactly the same when I was at university. I would either starve myself all day and just (try to) study study study... OR I would just buy tons of food and just stuff my face ALL day long without giving a f**k about anything else.. >< It was just awful.
    Gaining weight sucks, but good thing is that we can lose it back again XD so don't stress too much about it! Good luck! :) xoxo
