I would tell myself to get serious with her relationship with the Lord - I wouldn't have made so many mistakes if only I would have learned this lesson sooner!!!

In regards to weight? "Eating out all the time WILL eventually make you fat" I didn't have issues with it before 25, but that's what killed me in my late 20s... trying to act like I was still 19.
In regards to life? Probably "Finish your degree at the cheap in-state school where you went for 3 years, instead of deciding to up and transfer to an expensive out of state school... that you didn't end up finishing anyway".
In regards to love? Oh geeze, a few "If he really likes you HE WILL CALL YOU. No need to call him 17 times a day." and "Just because he doesn't make a lot of money, he's great in every single other way, keep him."
wake up and smell the coffee. change your lifestyle and focus on your health and wellbeing it doesn't matter how slow it goes...just that you keep improving if you don't start now, you will lose out on so many opportunities.
put your best foot forward for your job, but the job is so you can live well don't plan your life around the job...balance work and play...emphasis on play life is to be enjoyed...don't live like a zombie...make each day count
and when you look in the mirror...smile.

Me to my young-self: "Dude, you're gonna laugh so hard 35 years from now when you find out at the reunion that you're way more successful than all those people who kicked your fat band geek butt......seriously, you're gonna pee your pants laughing do hard!" "Keep partying hard because nothing happens to you except a better life!" "...oh, and lastly, you should probably stop making fun of those guys with muscles, you're gonna have 'em, too, one day."

My past is similar, COLOMAGIRL. I gained a little weight and got breasts at puberty -- at a time when girls were supposed to be stick thin. I hated my body and things went down hill from there.
I would tell myself to be strong, to not give in to temptations, to not get fat ... and to not care so much about what other people thought or said.

I remember the exact time in my life that my poor body image developed. I was in 8th grade and wore a size 9 and weighed 140 lbs which larger than all my friends. When I look back at old pictures, I realized that I looked just fine.. If I could go back, I would tell my younger self that she is just fine the way she is.
