Stress

I think there must be something about stress that limits the ability to lose weight.  I’ve been walking every day and keeping the calories down, but my weight continues to hover around 296-297.  The only difference this week then previous weeks is that the stress levels have kicked up a notch thanks to a huge project I have.  But that will be finished by the end of the day, so hopefully my normal, more laid-back persona reasserts itself then.  Of course, there’s also finals coming up in a few weeks, so there’s not that much time to relax!

  1. Stress can elevate your levels of cortisol, which can inhibit weight loss. Keep working out and eating right because increased cortisol can also make you gain weight (i.e. prednisone is a corti-steroid which is why I have issues with weight).

    Good luck on your project and finals.
