Busy Grad Student

I'm a busy grad student, studying Arts & Technology. I'm also an adjunct community college instructor, teaching video game level design. For some reason, whenever I'm really busy I just want to eat ALL THE TIME. It's like my body thinks that since I'm working so hard, it must really need more calories! Apparently, it doesn't realize that I'm actually doing fairly sedentary work.

I'm a busy grad student, studying Arts & Technology. I'm also an adjunct community college instructor, teaching video game level design. For some reason, whenever I'm really busy I just want to eat ALL THE TIME. It's like my body thinks that since I'm working so hard, it must really need more calories! Apparently, it doesn't realize that I'm actually doing fairly sedentary work.

On my own, I've pretty much succeeded in preventing myself from gaining more weight in the past couple of weeks, but I've returned to SparkPeople because it looks like if I don't actually track I'm not going to lose any of the weight I've put on. My first goal is to get back down to about 165, which has always been a kind of "default" weight for me that's fairly easy to maintain. That means I just need to lose about 8 pounds for now, which really should be easy!

Of course, I'd love to get back down to about 145 before I graduate with my MFA. That would be awesome, and maybe this time I'll actually think of it that way when I get there, without getting bummed out because I can't seem to lose any more weight.

Thanks for the comment! Good call with the sticking with it for x amount of days. I really agree with the control comment. Maybe that's what's so frustrating about all this - we can control how many calories we eat and how much we exercise but not what the scale says. Congrats on the move!

Congrats on moving. I would rather spend my money on homegoods instead of clothes any day. I tell Eric all the time that when we get a house, we live in an apartment now, I'm going to go insane buying things for it! LOL. You know I never have thought about keeping my old clothes in case I gain my weight back. I just seems like a waste for clothes to stay packed up for years whether they're your skinny clothes or your fat clothes. I guarantee you that there are so many people out there hat need them! That's a really good idea about gaining weight back! And you better believe if my pants start getting too tight I will be checking what I'm doing and fixing it! Thanks for the blog comment!!

Love the colour and cut of your hair. I used dye my hair black with funky highlights but now that I'm a mom with a job in the public eye I keep choosing 'natural djavascript:%20void(0);ark brown' =/ I'm getting boring. Good luck with your weight loss!
