You may have heard of the "ulnar nerve paradox".
Well I have come up with my own paradox of late.
The longer I am in medical school, the more weight I put on. This is bad for many reasons, but the main issue right now is that I am poor so I can't even afford to go out and buy some temporary 'fat clothes' while I step up my exercise routine and turn down the stress-snacking.
So I am left with wearing the only clothes that feel comfortable and still fit--my athletic clothes.
That's right...the sweat pants, the lycra tanks, the light poly track pants, the running shorts.
And it's kind of a sad joke, really, because the chubbier I get the more I have to dress like a jock freak.
