My name is J.L.

Currently I am a 22 year old female who is studying to be a pharmacist.

I joined sparkpeople out of curiosity and because I was looking to see if I could make friends with others who also shared similar goals and feelings.

Currently I oscillate between overweight and average on the BMI scale. However, I would rather be far down to a healthy weight.

I always feel like I am fat and I use food as a punishment/reward. I can't resist free food and I can't control myself when it comes to eating. I'd like to help myself get over that.

I guess we'll see.

    YES, you CAN control yourself when it comes to food. Read PAUL McKENNA's "I Can Make You Thin" or go to YouTube and listen to his videos.

SO, he says that we ALL have control over deciding what goes into our mouths. He does the experiment with people who swear they have food they CAN'T keep from eating, like chocolate, but he finds out that the person hates sardines, so he dips the chocolate in sardines, for example, and of course, she isn't going to eat it.

He has a CD that is really good to listen to daily and I loved reading his book. It certainly has made the argument in my head from that voice I call "HARRIET" easier to tell her to SHUT UP YOU LYING WITCH.

I love that you are going to Pharmacy school. That is a great job to have.
