I read what you wrote on your page and found it to be very interesting and honest. I read a lot of people's pages since I make it a habit to welcome people. Not too many people are as honest about themselves as you are here. But, I think it is great! I think if more people were honest about who they are and what they have experienced then more people here and in the world in general would be helped. Keep being you and keep up the good work and you will continue to help others. 4 or was it 5 times a week at the gym huh? That is GREAT!!! That is what I have been doing. Well, only since September though. It is starting to become easier. I normally have never gone to the gym on a regular basis more than 3 times a week. I am going to keep it up though. Well, welcome to Can't do this on my own. I look forward to getting to know you better, and hope you enjoy our team.
Hey Girlfriend...You are a beautiful girl..You have to learn to love yourself, the beautiful body God has given you. If you have confidence in yourself, then men appeciate that much more than anything else. Looks are not what will keep a man...Youve seen the stars...the most famous get cheated on... Its all about your personality and your confidence...and really how much of a man they really are.
Jess, when I was 22, I wasnt no where near your skinniness. Can I tell you, that I also used to smoke. I smoked for 13 years, but I did finally quit when I was 26...Its been 20 years now.
Putting healthy things into your body and staying toned, and believing in yourself is what is going to help keep your youth.
You are going thru a lot with recovery or I'd be all over you with the smoking...but, recovery is more important...take it a day at a time...and when you do feel stronger then maybe you can kick that habit. the fact that you are exercising and eating healthy is one big awesome step girl.
Please please, work on your pride and self confidence. You really are beautiful...you need to find that beautiful person within you and let her shine!!!
Hey Jess...Welcome to Spark. First let me start my congrats on your recovery....You should be VERYYYYY Proud of yourself. I'm glad that you have put your faith in God, He can surely help you on all your journeys.
As for the running, EVERYTHING counts. Most people starting off actually do it the way you mentioned. Its actually a better way to condition your body. Every couple of days you can try to run for like 15 secs. longer and build it up. Jess, anytype of exercising is good for YOU and your body! Find something you enjoy and stick with it girl!
Hope this helps...Good luck on your journey...we are here for you!
Ok..so I just checked your pictures out...you are on this website just for good eating habits and healthy exercising right? If not, it should be the only reason! Oh my goodness girl..you are so skinny! 1833 days ago
