I know you're trying to fight the onslaught of chaos, right? Or am I just talking about myself? It is a little easier from the standpoint that I know what to expect so I can gear myself a little bit differently. I have a family too, so I alternate between having the dinner table covered in books and/or plates for meal time. Sometimes we go somewhere in between.

How are you feeling lately? Are things going okay for you? I work everyday to stay calm and balanced or I can go into "obsessed" mode at any moment. I'm wishing you well. May the 2nd semester be everything they said it would be

Hey Joyce, I have a couple of friends that have been through your program at my university and I know it can be really intense. Best of luck with learning to balance your diet and your studies. I'm already having to deal with that. It's not three weeks into the second semester, and my dinner table is already covered in library and research books.

Everyone I spoke with last semester told me that things are easier your second semester. For both your sake, as well as my own, I hope they were correct.

Hi everybody! I'm Joyce and I'm new to the group. This is my 2nd semester of grad school as well and I gained a lot of weight last semester. After what I've lost, I'm still up about 12 pounds, but that's on top of a whole bunch I had to lose anyway. Oh, well. I am eating much better now but it's a struggle. I am going for a Masters in Education in TESOL, and the work load has been tremendous. I am really trying to take it one day at a time or else I get too overwhelmed.

I hope everybody is doing well. It's not forever, right?

Oh God Comps. My thoughts are with you! I have to take them a year from now and am already dreading it. I wish you the best of luck!

Hey, there - I am getting ready to take Comps and carrying about 10lbs I didn't have before grad school (started in 2007), when I back then wanted to lose 25lbs! So, once these exams are out of the way, I'll concentrate on calorie control and exercise. Until then...I'm doing research in Israel and eating, eh? okay? Anyway, point is - i know your pain!

Greetings all, I'm popping back onto Spark People after about 6 mos off. Last semester was my first sem of grad after taking over a year off to work. I expected it to be busy but Lord Almighty I didn't expect what I got. I'm getting a MA in History-Public History and working like a mad woman. With the stress of last sem I eventually threw out good eating habits and lived on frozen foods for ages and decided that I can't do that again. I can't stand the sight of the frozen meal aisle at the grocery store anymore emoticon
