    Yesterday I got myself a fitness smart watch

    and today I've already exceeded the goal that it set for me, and tomorrow I'm getting a recumbent trike so I don't put to much stress on my back, and then I'm going to kick getting healthy and thin into full gear!

    I know that allot of people are going to get on

    me about this, but next year (yes next year) I am going to get a recumbent trike (due to my back) and I am going to get back into riding. Hopefully this will allow me to lose enough weight overtime to get back into shape and be nice and thin again.

    maybe it is because of the fact that I loved fast food when I was younger and that my mother simply cooks too much and force me to eat it all, or perhaps it is because of the fact that I rarely go out and eat extremely fast. But I am changing, I go out now, eat slower, talked...

    Ever since I was eight it's been my goal to be

    the skinniest girl in the room. It's an obsession. But I just can't stop. And when I want to quit, I remind myself of all the people I have to prove wrong, and then go to bed hungry. Waking up thinner is worth going to bed hungry :)

    I don't think there's anything wrong with

    having the desire to be thin. Everyone tells me you're not fat but then goes around calling me fat. I will be thin. Go ahead call me fat because one day I'll have a perfect model body.

    Keep pushing. Don't give up. I will be thin. Let me be thin. Hunger pains are my addiction. Keeping track and having goals is what I do. Go to bed hungry and wake up thinner. I will be thin.
