memyselfandcoffee Posted October 2, 2013 Share Posted October 2, 2013 (edited) Hi , so a very ironic fact is that while I'm stretched to thin workwise, I am constantly stressing over being fat! If only I could be literally stretched too thin , instead of metaphorically! currently I am taking 3 classes and teaching on two and I am expected to run an experiment a week. On top of that I have changed my getting up time from noon to 7.30 and am walking an hour a day ( its my commute, 1/2 hour to and from uni). I'm so tired when i get home , its really hard to do anything, I just want to veg in front tv and eat pizza. However in the interest of losing weight, and fulfilling my gaol of looking good when I graduate I am eating mostly really healthily and Id say about an average of 1300 cals of healthy low carb, low fat food (fruit, veggies, salads).( some days less than 1300 cals, I guestimatE ) But its only been four weeks and I feel so exhausted alot. To top it off I end up eating pizza at least once a week, and as a result lose barely any weight. (i've lost 5 lbs in about 5 weeks, but fear its slowing). so I wonder I am doing too much, eating too little and then feeling exhausted disheartened b/c weight loss is slow, then i eat a pizza, gain a pound. its the same pattern workwise, I am making such an effort, up early , buzy, buzy, but barely have any time for research- which needs to my main focus. so can anyone sympathize? any tips or words of comfort appreciated! thanks Edited October 2, 2013 by elise123 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
