    Hello! I feel your pain I'm a (almost) 20 college student and constantly surrounded by poor eaters which only makes it harder! I'm 5'3 and nearly 140. only 5 short months ago I was 115 but lets just say its been a stressful semester and I ignored my health. To get the motivation I had over the summer I did not focus on the weight I wanted to loose from my 1st year of college I focused on my health. When you focus on a deeper meaning to eating healthy and working out it gives you more motivation. Also, I know you've probably heard this before but record record record what you eat. over the summer I used my fitness pal and it was the perfect app. And never forget it takes three weeks to notice changes to your own body so keep at it and keep your head up when you don't notice the weight you've lost come off your hips yet. patience is your best friend.

    Very well said "patience is your best friend". Give your hundred percent it will definitely going to work, when your close one's give you compliment then you will gonna realize that you are successful in loosing weight.
