    Getting rid of starches/sugar/unnecessary fats.
    My weightloss has reached a halt after losing only two pounds. =\ School is really rolling again and I am constantly getting homework dumped on me. I have a part-time job (cashier/stocker at Hobby Lobby) that I wear Shape-Ups to, so while I'm walking around I get a little bit of a toning workout, but other than that I have really had very little time to exercise. Sometimes I can squeeze a 25 minute routine in ONCE a week, other weeks I can't do it at at all.

    When I can't exercise, my motivation goes down the toilet, because exercise seems to be what really makes me lose weight.

    I need a minimum of 8 hours of sleep at night or I really struggle with staying awake in class, and this makes it even harder to find time to work out.

    I feel so unattractive right now. I'm the heaviest girl in nearly all of my classes, which consist mostly of girls anyway. I feel so self-conscious and sad. This, of course, makes me want to stuff my face with chocolate, being a bit of an emotional eater.

    I've tried to make as many adjustments to my diet as possible. When I want a sweet I'll have some low-sugar hot cocoa or one Hershey's kiss. But I'm worried that I still eat too much, even though it is all low-fat, low-sugar and whole grains. I'm eating green veggies every day... I feel stuck and really, really sad.

    Thanks for listening to me whine. Today is a snow day so I am working on homework and would like to exercise tonight if there is time. Shoveling snow wouldn't be a bad way to work out, either...

    Any encouragement or advice would be much appreciated. I feel like I'm surrounded by gorgeous people and I'm the cow walking around on her hind legs. :cry:

    Hey Missf, We all get down in the dumps from time to time but I so hope you won't give up!!...:wave_cry:

    Have a pretty good idea about the work load, not funny when you get left with the whole caboodle to deal with - and the feeling out of place is all too common for most OW -even the best of us...lol!
