6 months break to focus on weight lossWatch
I gave up uni after years of struggling with health issues and I really decided to put 100% into my well-being. I now study online and exercise and it’s the best I’ve ever felt in all my life and helps my anxiety so much too. It even makes me more productive. Such a worthwhile investment I can assure you because if you are determined, you will get there! All the best 😊
It sounds like you are conflating 2 issues; not being interested in your job and your weight. You actually have plenty of time in your current working day to address your health and fitness without losing out on income or spending money on dead rent; anyway, do you think you'll get a short tenancy and will a landlord take you on without a job? What if you've got to spend money on kitchen equipment, furniture etc?
Do you know what triggers your emotional eating? Have you looked at getting professional help for that and your general health and well-being? You don't even have to go to the gym; walk, cycle, dance, do an online fitness class. Learn to cook healthy meals. Make a diary of what you want to achieve each say and stick with it.
Don't make weight loss your sole focus; it should be part of your life, but integrated in with everything else. If you take time off, you'll lose the routine and maybe struggle when you have to go back to having a job and still shop, cook, eat healthily and exercise. Continue to work and study, and schedule in some time for everything else.
