Hey Celina,
My advice to you would to be to join your school gym as soon as possible. I'm not sure if all college gyms are cheap but my gym membership at my school was only one time $80 for the entire year, which is a great deal considering the prices of gym memberships now.
I would suggest slowly giving up food instead of totally trying to leap into a healthy lifestyle. So for example the first week, maybe you would give up on sugary sweets and replace them with alternatives such as fruits and then the next week or so when your ready gradually give up salty things like chips.
My next weight loss tip would be to drink a lot of water. Drink a bottle of water before and after you eat because sometimes our body confuses being thirsty with being hungry. If you drink water 10-20 minutes before you eat then you know how hungry you really are and your less likely to over eat.
Next I would suggest getting rid of "white stuff". So things like white rice, mayonnaise, crackers, white bread, pasta you should stop eating and replace it with whole wheat alternatives. For me, I eat wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, and if I eat a hamburger I'll have it with a whole wheat bun that way you can still eat things you enjoy and just make it a little more healthier.
Also, one thing that I do is avoid bad cravings. I tend to have night cravings, especially when I'm stressed and doing homework this is the tip I have for that. When I want to eat I do something concerning the way I look to distract me. So for me, If I'm in my dorm room and I want a bag of Dorito's I will start doing my nails or planning a hairstyle for the next day or a party. I'll even start planning outfits. Or, if you have a lot of work to do I will start doing something productive like studying or coming up with study methods to do. Either way the main point is when you have craving distract your mind until they go away. It's a win win because you stay productive and healthy.
Another tip I have is to write down what you eat. I'm a lazy person so it took me a while to get use to this (lol) , but it helps. You never realize how bad something you ate was or how much you ate until its down on paper.
Last but not least, I advice you to exercise every possible way you can. Take the steps whenever you can, walk instead of taking the bus if you can, go to yoga classes, Zumba (which I absolutely love) , Jump rope which helps you burn a lot of calories fast, or better yet party your ass off , I lost a lot of weight just going to parties and dancing the entire night. I hope my tips helped and I'm sorry this post looks like a weight loss novel. If you have any questions at all don't hesitate to reply. Staying healthy in college is hard because of the temptation but easy because of the resources provided to you and the fact that a lot of people eat healthier because everyone is getting more educated about health and wellness. Good luck hope you enjoy your college experience. emoticon

Hi Kindra,
I'm Celina and have lost over 40lbs so far, but am also new to sparkpeople. This fall I'm going to be a freshman in college and I was just wondering if you had any advice on losing weight freshman year instead of gaining!

Hi, my name is Kindra I'm 18 and a sophmore in college. I go to SUNY Oswego and am excited to meet people in my age range on this site going through similar stuff. I've been overweight my entire life and just lost 30 pounds my freshman year in Oswego and hope to continue. We all know being in college in losing weight is hard and I hope we all can go through this together and give eachother advice and tips. I'm new to this site its my first day so with that being said hey guys. :-)
