This was my first week back and I've lost 37 pounds. I live on campus and have to use the meal plan. Of course, it's very hard to eat healthy there because they basically make dinner items from lunch and dinner and then my dorm only has a microwave. The meals on campus are but necessarily health conscious and I'm not used to that anymore. I know it's possible to stay healthy in college but my friends don't eat like me and judge me for my lifestyle .. often. How do you do it?? I'm so used to doing my own thing at home.

Never mind your friends. I understand what you are saying.What you can do is the best you can do. So just continue to be as discipline as you can, and be happy with it...

If you have lost 37 pounds, then those people are crazy to judge you. Unless they are blind, they can SEE the benefits of your eating and workout habits. Just ignore them, and eat as healthy as you can. I am a full-time college student as well, and eating at the cafeteria is aweful. Because of my food sensitivities, I usually end up at the salad bar every day. Just become accostomed to eating simply; often it will be the same food all of the time, but remember that we eat to survive and function, and food is really not that important. 

Hope this helps and God bless!
