I honestly hate my body. I've been either gaining weight or staying the same number-wise for a while, regardless of what strategy I use. They're all strategies that worked for me in the past (using sp's nutrition recommendations, using a 2000 ... Read more
Quick update because it's been a while.
Still tracking most of my calories and working toward my goal weight. It's residency interview season, which means a lot of free fancy meals and not a lot of self-control. I come into each dinner with a ... Read more
back to it
Sure enough, stepped on the scale this morning and was greeted with a number I haven't seen in a very long time. I tried to see how long it's actually been since my weight was this high, but I couldn't find a date. I know it's been over a year... Read more
apparently Honesty is no longer the best policy
Based on the response to my last blog post (both post and comment have now been deleted and I'm trying to keep myself from writing something on "stop p***ing and moaning's" spark page that I'll regret later) I guess you're only allowed to be pos... Read more

It's almost 2015! I can barely believe it. I was just going through my "year in review" on Facebook and thinking about how much actually happened this year. I took the Step 1 board exam, completed third year clerkships, and more.

I have to be up super early tomorrow (like, 3am or so), so I'm going to keep this very brief and just post the pictures I took yesterday. Not much has changed from my last post--still fighting belly fat and love handles, still wishing I didn't ... Read more
An Unexpected Strength Test
This past weekend, the medical school had their annual intramural tournament known as College Cup. I consider this "the most wonderful time of the year" as it allows people to showcase their skills in events such as Iron Chef, inner tube water ... Read more

This post is a few days late, because I've been hella busy. Gonna keep this short, mostly because my first one got deleted before I could upload.
I've been tracking intermittently for the past few weeks, partly because of general busyness ... Read more
Progress Report: 9/1/14
I was home over the past week on break. A while before, I'd decided to experiment with not tracking, to see if I could handle it. After 2 years of tracking (and feeling like a slave to it sometimes), I thought that I might have learned enough ... Read more

I am swamped with work, so I don't have much time for a formal update. Not much has changed. I finished pediatrics and am on psychiatry now (loved the former, loving the latter). Still doing one Blogilates workout a day, and ... Read more

Hi friends! This post is a few days late because I was studying, but I am happy to say that I am DONE with my first rotation. Surgery was tough, but I learned quite a bit about the practice of medicine and how to adapt to overwhelming situatio... Read more
