    Backward trend over the weekend. I took Girl Scouts camping and did not have control over the type of food served for most meals. I will have the same challenge this weekend when I go to an astronomy camp -- fun weekends, but it is hard for me to be responsible to my personal eating and running goals when I am in a group setting with group meals and activities. 10 weeks and 16 lbs.... I can do this. Good job everyone!

    Just remember...if you're doing a lot of physical activity, it can offset some of the higher calorie meals. Don't be too hard on yourself!

    I didn't see this until now, and I'm working towards this, but it's unlikely I'll lose 15 by then. If I lose 1 a week I'll only lose 12, and I'll be surprised if everything goes that smoothly. :)

    Start weight: 169.4
    Goal: 152 (-17lbs)
    8.22: 168.0 (-1.4)
    8.29: 167.0 ( -1)

    10.3: 159.4 (-1.2)

    10.12: 160.4 (+1 lb)

    Ugh. I had a really rough week and a half that completely derailed my eating and exercise habits. I stress binged almost every day the last 7 or 8 days :( I'm hoping the scale was right and I really am only set back by 1 lb.

    Has anyone else battled stress eating while in college? I've noticed getting enough sleep helps but sometimes certain deadlines mean sleep just isn't happening for a few days and I lose control with terribly sugary foods. Any emergency life hacks for those situations?

    Instead of sugary snacks, try a protein bar. I love Oh Yeah brand (Cinnamon Roll, Lemon, & Almond Bliss are my favs). You can get them off of Amazon or health food store. They are low in sugar and carbs and have 20g protein.

    Just came back from another GS camp where I didn't have control over food and most meals were high carb -- contrary to my LCHF diet preference. I am really pleased that I didn't gain weight and managed to continue decreasing. I need to go grocery shopping and buy some more vegetables so I can make good choices and stay on track. --- Good work everyone!

    Two things that help me when I want to make bad snack choices are: 1) brushing my teeth -- I usually don't want to eat after brushing teeth, and 2) get up and move around, take a 5-10 minute break.

    Best wishes at school and weight loss.

    Thanks Percycat1 and loribh0126. I'm going to use those strategies next time I'm short on sleep and long on stress. Post midterms the semester starts picking up speed so I'm sure that'll be soon.
