I am a college student, currently 19 years old. I'm about 5'8" and 230. Because of my living conditions and schedule, I can't exercise on a "regular" basis (ie, a certain time every day for x hours). For the same reasons, it is difficult to control what I eat, a problem multiplied by being a picky eater.
Can anyone offer suggestions for me? I'm looking to lose a few pounds on a fairly random, chaotic schedule.

I have to agree with seth on the running thing. When I joined track a couple years ago and began to run regularily, I lost about 20 pounds over the course of about half a year and went from 175 lbs to 155 lbs. Running's not for everyone though.
Basically, you need to find time to exercise (doesn't need to be every day, but at least 3 times a week) and you need to devote time and effort to that. In addition, whether you are picky or not, you need to eat healthy foods and cut all high fat and high sugar items from your diet. Be sure that you still eat everything you should be eating, don't take the quick and tasty alternatives to making yourself something healthy. Drink plenty of water and be sure to balance your diet. Eating properly, aside from cutting out "junk" calories, will help you feel more energetic and motivated. You'll be more inclined to go through with eating better when you feel good about it.
By being a picky eater, what exactly do you mean? If you're going to say that you don't like green vegetables or something along those lines then you're going to need to suck it up and eat them regardless. You can't cut large portions of your diet out without properly supplementing what's missing with other foods high in "...", vitamins, etc.

Well I'm a college student as well.. and I still have time for my workout.. which I have just recently started.. working 2 jobs.. going to school from 8:30-2:30 most days and 8:30-4:30 on thursdays.. even just a little bit of exercise.. i have an exersise ball in my room... anywhere you can fit it in.. Ive lost 25 since the very end of october.
Also, you're a college student which means you should get a free gym/rec centre.. which makes it easy to work out considering you dont have to pay for it
