    I've recently been paying more

    and more attention to when I'm actually hungry instead of when I'm used to eating. Am I really hungry when I wake up? When I get home from work? I find a lot of the time it's that I need water. If I feel hungry I drink a full glass of water and then wait 15 minutes. If I'm still...

    Growing up, I was a little chubby.

    I hung out with the popular crowd of beautiful skinny girls and i was known as the "cool but chubby chick." I hated that! No one wants to be known as "that" girl. I am 5'2 and back then, 130 pounds was ALOT of weight. (i know , it's not that big).I became anorexic and lost...

    Hey ladies and gents!
