    I Want To Be A Girly Girl

    When I was younger girl, I was the one who put on the makeup and polish my nails. Now I' am 25, single and lazy. When going out with friends to an event I' am not motivated to look my best. Part of me know I don't care to take the time because I' am single. Don't get me wrong I...

    Motivation

    is something I totally lack. From July to September, I lost 20 pounds, and I felt and looked better than I had in 12 years. The past two months, I've put ten of those pounds back on, and I can't seem to get myself back into the routine I was in before. It sucks when you can't...

    I must say that a bit malnourished.

    I don't do my nails much, and I'm lazy and hate having to do this natural hair. I can go a day without washing or brushing. (I'm so freaking lazy). I wanna be a healthy person. I even have a healthy food board on Pinterest. I wanna go running and biking. Even taking walks around...

    You Can Take Care Change Your Live Completly I Did

      I change my life completely when I learn that the only way I was going to change my bad habits was by really believing in myself. I start it by changing from the inside to the outside. I feel great and I look like I did 10 years ago, and this are the words of my VA Dr. who...

    Ever since I was a child,

    I never really took very good care of myself. Physical appearance - my own or that of others - never phased me. I never quite saw the point of it all. Who gives a ****, right? I used to laugh at other women for going through so much effort just to look good. Spending needless...

    After a few years of trauma and grief I emerge a bit worse for the wear. Now is the time to start taking care of myself again. I was taught that wanting to look better is vanity, but in the Bible Esther spent a year fixing herself up for the King. She used lotions and creams and...

    Not Good

    I don't take very good care of myself. I don't drink enough water and I am almost dehydrated. Also, I don't eat very well because my medicine takes away my appetite. And I also have very low blood sugar and get dizzy a lot.

    I Can Do It!!

    I have finally decided to start weight watchers again. I was so successful last time. losing 42 lbs. But I just got tired of the same thing everyday and started to get into my old habits. But I already know I am capable of doing it. Its just the starting that is hard.
