20-Somethings - Let's Lose it Before School Starts!

06-30-2014, 12:19 AM
Hi everyone! I'm Nina, I'm 20, and I want to lose my dreaded freshman 15 that has been hanging around for the last 2 years. Ugh :(

I assume that since the group here is 20-somethings, many of you might be in school too and are trying to lose weight before classes start this fall. That is exactly what I am doing. 15 pounds down by September 1st.

If anyone is looking to do the same as me, leave a comment to this thread. We can motivate each other and use this as a space to keep track of our workouts and diets, and to help each other be our best for the upcoming year :D

Starting tomorrow (It's almost midnight here haha) I am going to be doing pilates 5-7 days a week, specifically Winsor Pilates. I have tons of her DVDs, and I have used them in the past and had AMAZING results. I looked like a dancer, and I got that body in record time too. You can find her workouts on Youtube if you type Winsor Pilates into the search, since her videos are a few years old now. Check them out if you want :)

I will also do cardio whenever I can, but honestly I hate it. So I'll try and go for long walks or bike and swim now that it is summer time.

I can see myself slimmed down and walking around campus. I can't wait to achieve this goal!:dizzy:

Hope to hear from some of you !!

I have a bit more to lose than you but Im totally in! I'm running right now and started counting calories (1400 though I will eat a little more after a hard run) and finally feeling like Im back on track.
I guess my back to school goal would be to get to 165-175 (I'm 180 currently)

Lets do it!!!!

I'm a high school teacher off for the summer...can I still play?

I'm aiming for 150 by September 1 and feel that's a really optimistic goal.

I'm currently on L1D5 of the 30 Day Shred, and am trying to walk 5k 3+ times a week. My LoseIt! app has me set at 1200 calories a day, but I'm not really hardcore about it, its just nice to have a ballpark of what I am consuming. I'm trying to tone as I lose weight, because i'm super flabby.

I would be up for joining in as well. I'm currently at 194 and would like to be at 180 by when I go back to school in mid-September. :)

I just want a goal, so I am in too :)
145 is my immediate goal, but if I could make it into the 130's by September that would be fantastic! I'm aiming high to lose at least 27 pounds.

My diet: Paleo / Primal
Exercise: walking, jumping, building, hiking, fun movement
Initial weigh in (today): 166.2

If teachers count, I'm in! Impossible for me to make goal by then but I would like to be 15lbs down by the time school starts (8/18).

4.7 pounds lost this past week! If I keep this up, I will make my goal by September!! :D

Papillon-Great loss!

I would LOVE to lose 5lbs by the time school starts.

Thanks :)

I wont actually have access to a scale until August 13, so I will have no idea what my weight is until then...I don't suppose it truly matters since I'm taking measurements every 10 days, but I still want to know for some reason.

Great job, LePetitPapillon! :) Thats an awesome week!

I'm in! I would like to hopefully lose around another 10 pounds by September. I've been doing Weight Watchers but haven't been completely OP the last few weeks, and as a result haven't been losing as quickly as I was at first. But if I could be somewhere in the 150s by the time school starts in a month, that would be amazing :)

Well this week was not so good lol. I gained .2 pounds. Too much stress, fruit, and fats. Here's to next week!

papillon-hey you had such a big loss the previous week so don't sweat it. I'm sure next week you'll have a big drop :)

I'm just holding steady. My calories are low though so if I keep eat the amount I am, my body will have to eventually lose weight :dizzy:

Thanks :) good luck with your weight loss too!

I weighed in at 192.5 on Friday AM. I had a "tourist" weekend and ate WAY over my calories, so I'm expecting some weight gain but hopefully it wont be too too much....

....miiiiiiiiiiiight have stolen the scale from the physics office today. No one is there for the summer, maintenance was checking the windows so it was unlocked. I can return it when my friend comes back from the states in a couple weeks, since its his office anyway. Right now it is living in the 12th grade office with me. :)

My point is I was able to weigh myself today.

7/30: 71kg/156.5lbs
Lbs lost: 3.5
Lbs to go: 6.5
