Help needed from a desperate college student!
I have such an awful pattern when it comes to gaining and losing weight. Typically I gain my weight in the fall and winter and as soon as spring hits I'm motivated again and I work really hard through the summer to lose and maintain it.
In the fall I'm getting back into the swing of classes and I usually take a heavier courseload in the fall because we have bad winters here and I'm scared of driving so frequently in the snow. Last year was the worst I was up to 158lbs which is the heaviest I've ever been ( I'm really short ). I ended up losing 20lbs sensibly by cutting portion sizes, workout out at least 3 times a week, not drinking soda, and doing alot of outdoor activities.
I'm so burnt out between school and work that I don't have the energy and desire to exercise and especially to cook.
I've already gained like 5lbs back and it's really scaring me. I started gaining in August which is typically doesn't happen. I gained from going on a beach vacation and not being active plus having a ton of treats and then I came back and school started.
I've been thinking about weight watchers but I'm not sure.
