Next month I'll be going on my first ever "business trip." I'll be meeting a lot of people who may just hire me for a real job when I finish college in the spring. All of this has come as a surprise, and so I'm wholly unprepared. I'm a little upset, actually, because I want to lose about 15 pounds but I know I can't do it in 30 days. I'm not horribly overweight ... nobody's shopping in the plus-size section or anything (not that there's anything wrong with this). Still, I'd feel better about myself / more confident / etc. if I could just slim down a little. So, my question to everyone is: have you ever had to lose weight in a short period of time? What worked for you in terms of food / gym schedule / other things? What kind of results did you see?
