    Oooo boy, you've got some special things to learn about cortisol and perhaps adrenal fatigue. When you're chronically overstressed, the hormone that helps you deal with stress and balance blood sugar - cortisol - can end up being disregulated. You'll be low on it during the day and then all of a sudden have a lot of it at night. So, procrastination may have started the problem, but then it snowballs into your body's hormones working the opposite of what you want it to.

    153 isn't such a bad place to be. I don't know if this helps, but thickness can be more attractive on shorter girls. Well...hope things are going well. Get fit! and throw the scale out.

    Thanks for the well wishes everyone! I've been MIA recently because... (insert dramatic music) FINALS ARE HERE! It's that time of year where I wish I wasn't the equivalent of an engineering major and could experience what some people call "free time" lol. Even though my first final was yesterday (and I still have 4 more...), the past few weeks has been a whirlwind of reviews and classes wrapping up; basically a headfirst plunge into the rush towards the end of the semester. ...And as such, my eating has suffered - stress does a number on my food consumption... I'm all over the place. What I'm trying to do is not beat myself up over it but at the same time not let myself fall back into that pattern of not eating real food. Just gotta keep pressing that imaginary "reset" button :P

    Hah - I feel you. I'm - THANK GOD - past grad school now and don't see myself going back to school. But when it came to getting a project done or a whole week of insanity done, I was in survival mode and just ate whatever kept me going like a crackhead, even if I'd need another fix of something equally bad in another hour. Make sure you let yourself heal from all of it with some healthy eating, playing outside and plenteee of sleep. Time to reset!

    And FINALLY DONE!!! Well, at least in the official sense of the term - I still have two summer classes and work, along with the rest of life. But for all intensive purposes I'm done with junior year.

    I was in survival mode and just ate whatever kept me going like a crackhead, even if I'd need another fix of something equally bad in another hour.
    This described me a lot during finals, and therefore I gained probably another 5-6 lbs putting me around 157/158ish... *cringe*. Oh well, now that the majority of my time is free, it's time to detox food-wise, de-stress, and get on a normal sleep schedule. YAYYY!!!!

    Oh I am. I just need to change my mentality away from "school mode"
