I'm a second year grad student who managed to gain 17 pounds in the first 16 months of my program... the doctor said that that was "normal" for graduate students. NORMAL?

Totally agree - sometimes you just need to *start* to do something so much that it really doesn't matter what that something is. Even not gaining more weight is an improvement.

I'm a first year law student, and I'm struggling to find motivation to keep up an exercise routine. Since starting school I've gained 15 pounds without changing my diet too much. I don't think I eat entirely unhealthy, and I truly don't want to work on changing my food choices that much. I think the main cause of the gain was the switch to an almost completely sedentary lifestyle. However, I'm ready to change that and be able to fit into my clothes again ASAP! I just need to find a way to fit it in my schedule and keep at it instead of viewing exercise as just another item on the long "to-do" list. I hope I'm not alone in this issue, and look forward to hearing everyone's stories!

I thought I should introduce myself... I'm a graduate student in Speech-Language Pathology (first year) and like the rest of you find that I no time outside of homework, clinic, and massive paperwork to do anything to keep healthy.
Well I'm here to try to change SOMETHING about that....
