Hello everyone - long time no talk!
I apologize. I fell off the food-&-exercising-tracking for entirely too long. In the past few months, I also had finals, moved out of my dorm, and landed a full-time summer internship in my hometown. I'v... Read more
Guys...oh man. This entire week was awful, and it culminated in my worst day yet.
SO MANY CARBS. SO MUCH FOOD. AND I'M NOT EVEN HUNGRY.
This upcoming week is going to be hugely stressful, and as if in preparation...I ate my little hea... Read more
Project Freshman 15 hit a bit of a snag this week. I don't know WHAT is going on, but boy did I just go wild. My official weight yesterday was 121.4 lbs - .2 less than the week before, but essentially no change.
Don't get me wrong - I'm gla... Read more
Oh...the struggle is back. And I was doing so well!
It's the stress. I know it is. I'm hiding it well, but it's coming out in my eating habits.
I'm doing plenty of exercise, which is why I don't think these "mistakes" are going to hu... Read more
Down about a pound this week, more or less. "Official" weigh-in on Sunday was 121.6.

Week 2 was a success...my official weigh-in on Sunday was 123.8 pounds, which is great! I'm getting back to where I was towards the beginning of last semester.
I DID have a hiccup Sunday night. I consumed A LOT more calories than I had in a... Read more
Project Freshman Fifteen is off to a great start. I'm not certain (I used a different scale than usual, just to get a rough estimate), but I think I lost 2 pounds this week! Wow.
It was a week of mostly cardio. I went to the gym Monday - S... Read more
So last semester...all in all, I gained the Freshman 15.
This semester, I've resolved to lose it! :)
I've started off on a great note, and I plan to continue. This week is my time to try out different classes at our recreation center ... Read more
...and it appears I lost about 1 pound. I did stumble this weekend, but even these slip-ups don't compare to the damage I did while at school.
Still trying to hold myself accountable and really watch what I'm eating - and why. Trying to mak... Read more
I am officially done with my first semester of college! I took my last final (Econ) yesterday morning...and then I was free!! :)
On the bright side, I have a month of winter break to spend at home with my family and friends. Th... Read more
I made it through my first "week of focus"...and it did not go as I hoped. ):
Definitely, definitely lost my focus.
I see more clearly than ever that my eating behaviors are a consequence of emotional stress. Sure, having food around... Read more
