I guess I can contribute that to my 40hour workweek, 2 nights of lecture, 2 nights of clinical, planning a wedding which = constant stress that causes me to be too uptight & nauseous most of the time to even THINK about eating plus constant running around. I'm not unhappy about the weight loss, but I just am not feeling healthy becuause my diet is so POOR! I am however doing great in school so a few months of this is worth it I guess!

Then in the spring oh man... the nursing class from hell and I gained 16lbs eating fast food every night (I was too swamped to cook and this was DH idea of dinner lol)
I have now lost 14 of it so almost back to square 1. I don't usually buy myself junk .. I even leave all money in the car at work and school so I can't hit the vending machines. But hubby brings chocolate and coke home when I'm studying "here honey you are stressed. PLEASE eat chocolate" lol

Dec 12, '06Joined: Dec '06; Posts: 51; Likes: 1I gained 40 pounds! Between full time work and full time school I didn't have time to exercise and the pre-made meals in the freezer stayed put. I think I ended up nibbling my way through school. Now that I'm done I can get back to my regular eating habits and start running again. Gotta loose those extra pounds! umpiron:
