Hydrate your body. You may not love water...drink it anyway. It affects every part of your body in a positive way. Wear sunscreen....get sun in moderation. Discover the activity you love to do and do it your whole life. Keep searching out different ideas for moving your body...zumba wasn't here when I was young:) Leave off soda....sweets. You don't need them really you don't :)

Make those good habits now. It really is more difficult after 40.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

You won't always have good health unless you take care of yourself.
Take better care of yourself: eat a healthy balance of foods, drink plenty of fluids, make time to exercise, get adequate rest/sleep, and learn to deal with stress in healthy ways.
All the neglect and inattention to your own health will result in poor health later in life; much of this will not be reversible.

I was active when I was in school. Played basketball, volleyball, dodgeball (and a lot of activities) all after school.
Later in life when I was working and had my family, I was not as active.
I wish I go go back and encourage me to go to the Y or just try to find some local people that wanted to be active.

Now I am not physically able to do all of the things I once loved.

I would also tell myself: "You are much stronger than you realize."
"Never give up." I am working on that one now. :0)

Edited by: MISSPEACHES3 at: 2/9/2014 (18:58)

:2014 Will be a good year,
Full of hope and good cheer.
:I CAN do this....... YES I CAN.
:Don't EVER give up or give in.

I would tell my much younger self "You're not going to believe what happens in the next 30 years. It's going to turn out great!"

Oh yeah, and save yourself some heartache and learn to love exercise and eating right while you're young!

But again, I'm even grateful for the experience of being very overweight for a decade or so. All our experiences make us who we are.

I know you don't believe it, but people DO love you and want you in their lives, and they are better for knowing you. LEAVE that place you're in. Those people are not healthy for you and it is never going to get better because people don't change. Don't bother with internet dating. It will ruin your self esteem. When you feel like crying, just cry. Don't try to hide your pain and medicate it by eating. Keep lifting weights. You liked how you looked when you had those small, shapely muscles. Don't quit! Most of all, please learn that you are valuable for who you are not just what you can do.

Really nothing but I only got over weight very late and was really fit until three years ago.

Having said that I am glad of being where I am now, I feel really 20 years younger

Don't allow a relationship to dictate how you eat and how you take care of your body.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

Think first before taking the advice of others.
Its never to late to reach a goal.
Age is a attitude-not only a number.
Enjoy life a little longer before getting married and/or having children-after that its No Longer "All about me".
Go to College/Training, don't allow your self to become financeally depenant on another person or spouse.
Don't overeat because it tastes good.
Don't let your emotions control how much you eat.
You are unique-their is only One You!

Highest weight-340+
Started Spark-255 lbs
Mini goal-200 lbs

Live your life, how YOU want...not for others.
Take chances.
Try new things.
Keep learning.
Make time.
Spend time alone-get to really know yourself and what you want.
When with family and/or friends, be there-completely.
Life can change in a heartbeat, so always say what you mean, and mean what you say.

~Love the life you live...Live the life you love~

I'd tell younger me:

*Finish college
*Travel the world while you're young
*Take the Flight Attn. job, that mom talked you out of
*Appreciate your looks & figure, it doesn't last forever
*Go on the 2 family vacations to Europe, instead of staying home
*Go to the family reunion
*Don't mistake sex for love
*The man of your dreams is out there, don't settle
*Expand your horizons ~ go to the opera, the ballet, plays, museums
*Don't let other peoples hang-ups hold you back
*Love yourself!

Dear Little Self when you're older you will have a new name that you love. Exercise! Exercise and play every day.

Go to OA and Adult Children of Alcoholics, it's not your fault! Your HP is the Goddess Hecate.

You will one day understand your sexuality, don't be afraid.

You are strong and brave, stand your ground.

You are bipolar get help, the meds will make you feel much better.

You are precious and you deserve a good life, don't listen to the thoughts you have about suicide, they are false.

Don't do it - for all the things I did and ate (from bad marriage to weight gain my choices were all on me even when encouraged I should have listened to myself as I knew I was making mistakes)

Do it - for all the things I believed I couldn't do (as constantly told by my family "you're too fat to do that" "you can't do that you're unco" etc etc)

Live and Laugh even when nobody is watching - if you only put on a fake happy for the crowds but are miserable in your own company or when you lie in bed at night something (possibly everything) needs to change

It depends on the definition of younger self. Do we define it as 16, 21, 25, 30, 35, or even 40? Some things are universal no matter the age. So are not. Would I tell myself to not drink, smoke, think the world will not end when my first love breaks up with me, go full time to college, move from home earlier in life...?

All the things I would tell myself not to do or to do have brought me here. I am more confident, secure, and mature than I ever thought I would be.

Thanks for the thought-provoking question, though.

Life is not waiting for the storms to pass..it's learning to dance in the rain.
