    Just remember, eating healthy is more important

    than exercising a lot. I've done very well with my eating in the past week and I already feel better about myself. The easiest thing to do is cut out fast food. It's okay to have a cheat day, but try your best not to.

    weight. My sleeping patterns are attractions. My heart rate is constantly above where it should be. I occasionally have moments where breathing is difficult. I don't know how to solve it but I'm trying to figure it out.

    But it wont happen. Society lost compassion.

    They choose profit over unity. That kills us. We care too much. And get broken. But they say too bad. And refuse to fix anything. Rankings. http://youtu.be/T8UqdPKbpWM http://youtu.be/ZPHSXUS0_1c

    Health, to me, is more
