Good luck with your exams, Betsy, and yes it is freezing in Boston right now! I love running outside, but in this cold I can't make myself do it, which is also why I haven't been exercising enough. But it's time to change that now... I am working on convincing my roommate to come to aerobics classes with me at the gym, since it makes me more motivated to be going with someone else.

I gained a lot of weight during my first semester in grad school. I just loved to keep munching! I started to feel really awful and I gained so much weight during the holidays that starting January 4th, I began a plan of exercise 3x a week, maintaining an overall schedule, and tracking food with healthy choices. It's been working. I haven't been too strict and too exercised obsessed because I knew I wouldn't have the time. I'm really doing much better. I wish everyone luck. Grad school is so intense. You just want to eat to comfort yourself, but what I learned is that it just made everything so much more miserable!

Hey, I hope to be in your same boat soon! I mean I have gained the weight that comes with grad school, but my exams are scheduled for Feb 12th! Soon after, I will get back to LOSING and not just maintaining my weight gain!

BTW, I'm in Worcester at Clark University - I see you are in Boston...it's FREEZING here right now, no??

Hi everyone,
I weighed myself this morning and got a big shock because it is the most I have ever weighed. I had my qualifying exam 2 weeks ago (and passed!) but while I have been preparing for the exam for the last few months, I have been so stressed out that I have been eating far too much... so my weight has been gradually going up.
But today is the day to start doing something about it and get back on track with a healthy lifestyle.
Hopefully Sparkpeople will give me the motivation I need.
