    Help!

    There's a great sense of belonging I feel when I'm in his arms. A feeling I never felt with any others. I feel home. I'm comfortable and safe. I've been able to tell him everything, even cry in his arms when I got kicked out by my mom. He has always given the best advice...

    A Wake Up Call.

    So, I am a 25 year old female, I don't smoke at all or binge drink but I have always struggled with food. I have such a sweet tooth and can never seem to stop when it comes to chocolate, sweets, ice-cream, cake, etc. I sometimes end up eating until I feel sick- it's like I can't...

    Slowly But Surely

    I am building up toward getting back in shape. I have changed my diet- smaller portions of everything, no caffeine or alcohol, very little sugar, fat, and sodium. Just from those small changes, I have lost 6 lbs and regulated my blood pressure. I'm already a strict vegetarian...

    I have always taken care of my health
