    just take one day a t a time, cut down on any junk, biscuits, pop, butter, sugar in tea etc ; make small changes, but don’t expect instant results.

    it should come off slowly but by just changing a few things should make a difference.

    this way you nor anyone else probably won’t notice you are on a diet.

    i guess the easiest thing for you to do which is cheap and cheerful would be to buy an exercise video?

    just keep your eating habits nutritional and frequent enough (don’t starve yourself) and get cracking in front of an exercise video.

    they do say that plenty of water is good for the old detox. just eat sensibly and stay away from crisps and chocolate etc.

    the video should shift the weight.

    loosing weight is never fun and never easy… so good luck and stick with it!

    go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7
    p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don’t eat wheat then you don’t eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don’t eat junk food, and you don’t eat biscuits. But your diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or to buy special meals or plans.

    Go for a fast paced walk as many days a week as you can. Make these walks around 30 minutes or more. You need to do this to lose weight if you are not able to diet.

    An obese person is someone who weighs more than his or her ideal body weight. So, if you maintain your ideal body weight, you will never get overweight or obese, right? So how to do it? Well, the answer is so simple that I am sure you will say ‘but I already knew that’! The key to maintaining your ideal weight is to eat a balanced and healthy diet and lead an active lifestyle. This is a common advice given by natural weight loss experts to those who are overweight and even those who are slim (so that they don’t gain weight in future). But few people pay any heed to it! Most people prefer to live by weight loss drugs and supplements instead of following the natural route!

    ok, you can start by either working out at home starting with pushups ,jumpping jacks,etc and that dosent mean weights so if you wanna build a lil mass you can get a pull up bar ,for cardio i would suggest either running or a skipping/jump rope for home (or outdoors) and for nutrition try eggs (high protien&cheap) raw or boiled but mainly get the will to do it.

    Kudos for not wanting a crash diet and boot camp exercise plan.

    Start with diet. Set it at about 1500 calories per day, with 1 day of the week where you can have a treat and go a little bit over. Make sure you’ve got a good balance of things. If you’re starting college, you should know by now approximately what that means. Spread what you eat out into smaller portions, but eat more often, every few hours if possible. If you find yourself feeling hungry, drink a glass of water. A lot of the time when we thinkg we’re hungry, we’re misinterpreting thirst signals. When you actually are hungry, try to fill up part of the way on low calorie/bulk or “negative” calorie foods, such as salads, grapefruits, etc. If you’re not a vegetarian and like jello, that’s a good one. You don’t have to entirely eliminate sweets, but you should cut down on them. If you drink soda or energy drinks, stop. Drink lots of water, instead, at least 10 cups per day, more if you feel so inclined.

    There’s a lot you can do to exercise with limited funds. One of the most important things to concentrate when trying to lose weight is cardio. Run, bike, swim, power walk, play basketball, racketball, or any other high paced/ fast moving sport/ activity you enjoy. Anything that gets your heart rate up and keeps it up will work. You can mix it up as much as you want. Do your cardio exercise for at least 30 minutes at a time, at least 4 days per week. If you want to and can do it for longer at a time or for more days a week, feel free. That will speed up your weight loss, though you seem to want a more laid back approach, which is fine. Find, borrow, or if needbe, buy a pair of 5 lb weights. They don’t cost much. Start doing some light weight training/toning work with them, as well as crunches, and maybe some squats now and then. Just about any good cardio routine will tone up most of your legs fairly well as you lose the weight, but other areas are apt to get a saggy skin look if you don’t tone them as you lose weight. 30 minutes of this stuff 3 days a week should get your fairly toned. If you want to be really efficient and have the stamina, try shadow boxing with the weights in your hands. If you keep it up for 30 minutes, doing the whole little bouncy jump thing, it’s a great cardio workout, and the boxing motion tones a few areas of your arms at the same time. If you do a CAREFUL light twisting motion in your punches, this also works your abs, so you can squeeze a lot into a little time, with very little money involved.

    Just a hint, don’t workout right after you eat or drink a lot. Wait at least half an hour to an hour after anything heavy. You can and should drink water during your workout, though, just slowly.

    Good luck.
