    I'll need to change my lifestyle.

    I also need to change my diet. I need to consider what has sugar. I'm diabetic and need to lower my blood sugar. So I am going to have to consider my fitness and lose weight. One thing I need to start doing is doing a workout.

    If I don't lose weight then I won't be accepted

    in this world. I won't be considered beautiful or pretty until I'm super skinny enough. No one would really talk to me or want to be my friend because of the way I look. I would be judged all the time. I just know I have to look a certain way to be accepted in this world :(
