I’m 19 and have never been overweight but after my first year in college i was around 130ish (i’m 5’5’‘) which i wasn’t too happy about.
The sure way to lose the 15 pounds like i did is to count calories (it sucks but it helps a lot) but also make sure the calories you’re eating are good ones… like instead of ice cream go for frozen yogurt. I use thedailyplate.com to log and calculate my calories
On top of this you need to exercise EVERY DAY. if you’re serious about losing wait 3 times a week doesn’t cut it. do at least 30 minutes of cardio every day (elliptical trainer or treadmill is best) and make sure your heartrate is up the whole time. Then you should do ab exercises every other day and light weight lifting on the days you’re not doing abs.
it sounds like a frustrating process but i saw results in about 2 months and have never seen my body change so much… so good luck!
p.s. starving yourself won’t work, i promise
