    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...

    that I'm so damn perfect at giving advice for others to improve themselves and not to give a **** about their weak excuses they come up with, but when it comes to me, I come up with a mountain of excuses and do nothing at the end of the day. I want to change, but it seems that I...
