Re: Yet another.

I can definately understand what you're going through. I'm in my last year of undergrad, and with all the tests, stress, and whirlwind of things, it's so difficult to stay in shape. Since starting college I've put back on any weight I lost when I was in highschool: I'm about 5'6" and 175lbs. I'm not fat, like you said, I go to the gym, play raquetball, but I'm one of those athletic thypes that hides the chubbiness a little better because I'm not squishy.
With all the stress, I binged like crazy...and commonly purged too. With you finishing graduate, this may be a good time to start figuring out what will make you happy and keep from feeling guilty all the time. That cycle only compounds to my stress.
What have I been doing? I no longer keep food in the house. Period. Everything is a day by day basis. I tend to make healthier choices, just picking up food for the day, or going to the cafeteria only where I can have a nice salad and feel really good about myself. When I go home-no food, so I don't have a choice. I still don't always have time to excercise so I haven't noticed any difference in weight. The best thing though is that I'm eating to be healthy, not counting calories and worrying about everything that goes in my body. This way I don't stress over what that food is doing and I can pretty much be sure I won't gain a pound.
When I slip up and feel like a little ice cream or something. I go you know what, no biggie. There's no such thing as falling off a diet either. If I suddenly find myself with a pint of icecream or bag of chips, I actually have the recommended serving, then walk over to the sink and completely ruin whatever snack it is. You can't eat soggy cookies. ;)
