    I Need to Change the Way I Think About Myself.

    When I was younger I used to be a little chubby. But then I got a little taller and lost my baby fat. For some reason I can't seem to get rid of the way of thinking that I used to have. I still see myself as a chubby kid. I still look at myself and think I need to lose weight. I...

    How To Change Me.

    I hate everything about me and I get so upset about it sometimes. I really want to change the way I think because it is beginning to affect everything. I have no confidence and no self esteem and I really need to build them up again to be me again.
