|Weight Loss||Short girls (5'4" and under) with a significant amount of weight to lose! (40+)||Sep 28 2009
Hey. 5'3 here, and currently about 150ish (it varies). I just got back to school and studying has prevented me from checking.
Before college, junior and senior year of high school I was 168, and once I came to college I lost a good deal of weight whilst dealing with the unsavory vegetarian options that my school offered and homesickness among other things. This is not how I would like to lose weight!
I am interested in sticking to a healthy weight loss plan and lose 20-30 lbs and I need the motivation for it. It gets difficult to exercise at a stretch due to my school schedule (in fact, my school has mandatory PE courses each quarter but I was forced to drop mine because of the time ) so I am going to try to split it up throughout the day.
Good luck and thanks!

|If rice cookers are allowed then I recommend getting one. They work just like an pan/pot on the stove and they're not just for rice. I have a small 6-cup rice cooker with a removable pan and I've used it to make fresh food a couple of times. It's a really neat device.|

I live in a dorm w/o a stove. The only microwave we have is upstairs and I don't like microwave food anyway. I'm on the meal plan, but its not that big of a deal since the cafeteria has healthy food choices. And there's always the salad bar.
I use the rice cooker occasionally when I'm sick of school food. I have a rival 6-cup rice cooker with a removable pot that I used to saute veggies, cook soup or stew, and whatever. Some models can bake cakes(I've read that somewhere). It works just like a pan/pot.
There are also electric griddles and my dad even has an electric skillet, which are better alternatives to a rice cooker.
