Overloaded with Schoolwork/ Stressed out.

More die in the United States of too much food than of too little. 
(John Kenneth Galbraith, The Affluent Society)

Another good reducing exercise consists in placing both hands against the table edge and pushing back.
(Robert Quillen)

Several days have passed and here's my new post. I finally thought of a solution to my scale problem and ordered the appropriate battery online. No idea how I had not thought of it earlier, but, anyway- it should be coming in mail before Friday. No other word can describe my excitement better, just- FINALLY. I'm actually kind of scared of what I'll see on the display, but, at the same time, I really want to find out how I've been doing with my diet.

Frankly, I haven't really been eating much, I guess a maximum of 200-250 calories a day since my last post (last Thursday). There was a party I had to go to yesterday night and had to eat a chicken burrito and cake afterwards, so tasty, what can I say, but I felt so guilty afterwards (and it was probably also the problem of a stuffed shrunk stomach) that I really started feeling sick and had to purge: unwillingly. Sign that my body is getting used to the lack of food... I'm wearing my smallest pair of jeans now and I feel them fitting very loosely around my thighs and my waist. Definitely a good sign, even though I'll need to go shopping for a new pair of jeans before I go home and that is, at this point of the semester, waste of the precious time I need in order to complete my assignments and projects (oh, don't take me wrong, I love shopping.. and it'll for sure be more fun when I'm eventually shopping for small, maybe even extra-small sizes, it's just the school workload is HUGE).

Good luck to all of you, sweethearts and I'll post an update soon.
