    For being 18 years old,

    I have a lot of health problems. I'm 5'8" and 170lbs. I'm uncomfortable with the way I look and feel. I'm a hypochondriac, so naturally when I have an ailment, I look up what can be done about it. I would get pissed that every time I would look up what was bothering me that...

    So I have noticed my changes in eating.

    I have limited myself only to an amount and not binge eat like I normally do. I think this is great because like a really good friend on here once told me "Take baby steps" and that's what I'm doing. I haven't exercised but I will get to work soon. I'm going on vacation...

    Has anyone ever just wanted to,

    I don't know, completely start over? Do everything different. Do everything you were afraid of. Try again, but make it better. Make your life a greater one. One that you wouldn't want to start over with. That's what I want. I'm barely 17 and I'm already filled with regrets...

    I woke up today with a strong mentality today.

    I have always complained about being overweight and whatnot and well today will/is the day that I'm going to change my life and my lifestyle. A year ago I lost 20lbs and was, I guess, satisfied. I got sick and they had me take 16 pills a day, that included steroids. So I...

    It's not as much the need to change it's the

    desire to feel some peace and harmony without being haunted by drama.
