slimming at uni

we've all heard of the dreaded fresher fifteen. well i gained the fresher twenty eight. the first term i ate badly, drank too much and managed to break my ankle, which resulted in no exercise. i found that in my first year despite my best efforts to eat well it was really difficult to shift any of my excess weight. this summer i've made a conscious effort to loose as much as i can and although i'm almost 1 stone down it isn't enough. this year i am determined to loose all the weight i gained and then maintain it in a healthy way. i came up with a list of ideas to do that last year in this post. but its time to rethink my ideas and make an action plan!

keep going to slimming world
last year i didn't really have the finances in place to do this as obviously you can weigh yourself at home, but i found that i just didn't stick to it. i feel an element of pressure when i go to get weighed at group and that is what i need to keep me on track!

join the gym
last year i convinced myself that i could save some pennies and just go running... i didn't go. i can't stand the rain and cold so this year i am signing up to the gym and i want to go at least 3 times a week as well as swimming on the odd occasion.

exercise with friends
i realised that if i organise to meet up with a friend then i can't really get out of exercising. it also helps to have a bit of support and even a little bit of healthy competition!

drink less
this is the main thing i need to do this year. as a first year i went out a minimum of 4 days a week and towards the end of the year this was closer to 6 or 7 days! i need to find healthier alternatives to the drinks i like and then the rest of the time cut back a bit. i'm hoping this will be easier with my increased workload!

have you tried to loose weight whilst at uni? any tips?
