When deciding whether or not to say something to a friend about her appearance or behavior, keep this rule in mind. If it is something she can fix in 5 minutes (something in her teeth, talking too loud, etc.) go ahead. If not, it is best to keep it to yourself.
This way no one has to hear, "You have gained a lot of weight!" or, "Did you know you have a zit on your forehead?". Obviously these are things your friend knows about and can't fix, so why make her feel needlessly self-conscious? And hopefully your friends will treat you this way in return.

A lot of times I reach for food when I am not really hungry. I try to go by the 15 minute rule. I will get a drink of water and do something else for 15 minutes. If I still want to eat after that 15 minutes I go ahead and have something. Many times that distraction is all I need to get through. 91
I follow the rule . . . even if I don't feel like exercising I try for at least 15 minutes and if I still don't feel like it after 15 minutes I quit but more times than most after 15 minutes I keep going and before I know it my workout session is over with. Am I feel happy that I did my workout!!
