My love of nearly two years dumped me in May, and since then, I've lost nearly ten pounds - which, on a 5'1 petite frame, is pretty significant/noticeable. However, I'm still eating three meals a day - cereal, then yogurt/fruit/crackers for lunch, and a full fledged dinner normally (meat + veggies, maybe some cheese and bread to go along with it ). I'm working out the same amount I used to. And in fact, I've been drinking more - hardly abnormal after a breakup, but weird that the net result has been a 10 lb. weight LOSS. Really, the only thing that has changed, is that I don't snack in the afternoon between meals. I used to have some chips, or a cookie.
I've heard stress/grief can sometimes do wacky things to your metabolism. I've been really stressed at work and school, too...so maybe all that combined has catapulted my metabolism...anyone have thoughts/input on this?
