Many of us freshmen will be going home for Thanksgiving break in a mere two weeks and will be reuniting with not only family and close friends, but also judgmental high school kids. Whether you choose to see people that are still in high school or not, just know that there is one thing they will definitely talk about behind your back: how much weight you’ve gained.
It’s important to note that although the “freshmen 15” refers to the entire freshmen year, some of us have most likely gained about 3-5 pounds of solid Easy Mac, Sbarro pizza, self serve ice cream and alcohol (sorry, mom) during our first semester of college. And it shows.
So in order to avoid the dirty looks, now is the time to do a quick slim down before going home. Avoid eating season fries and dessert every night and hit the gym when you’re bored instead of Facebook stalking.
