Default I passed the bar exam!!

The summer of bar prep was also the very last beginning of a long weight loss journey.

I used weight lifting and running to cope with the stress. I ate well to nourish my body and my ability to learn huge amounts of information. And I lost 42 pounds while studying for the bar exam.

And I found out today I passed!

We had a party at work with lots of great food. And I told myself I could eat whatever I wanted. Cuz I passed the freaking bar exam! Didn't want the cake, the brownies, or the cookies. Passed on the bagels and the grapes. Had 3 slices of amazingly delicious pumpkin bread and called it a day. More calories, and empty calories, than necessary. But reasonable, and sustainable.

I know all about the bar (my sister is studying Law) and it is a HUGE accomplishment to pass it! Massive well done! I cannot believe you could lose weight while you were doing something so stressful, that is really inspirational! You feel proud of yourself!

YAY! What an amazing accomplishment!

I always tend to snack when studying, so your example really means a lot to me. Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations! Amazing that you were able to prepare for the bar exam and focus on weight loss. The stress would have pushed me the other way.
