about this community Welcome! college_losers is an interactive community aimed at college students who are trying to lose weight and become healthy and active. This community is moderated by alpacaxsammy and fadetheglitter, who wanted to create a place where college students could share their weight loss struggles, secrets, and successes. It is easy to forget about health while at college, but you don't have to gain those extra 15 pounds! This is a positive, advice based community and hate will not be tolerated. college_losers is a friends only community so please read the rules/info below and join us if you please :)
* please note * - No one at college_losers is a doctor and we do not have the credibility to give you medical advice. You should always consult a doctor before starting a new diet. We are simply here to share what works and what doesn't. Moderators can not be held accountable for all that is said here. Be safe, be healthy!
