hey! i just wanted to wish everybody luck. I messed up yesterday, but I've decided to "pretend" to start over. By keeping a journal about what I ate, and not eating to many treats, and making sure i get all the veggies and fruits that i need each day. I'm feeling better...and I'm excited that I'm not just quiting a giving up just because I messed up once. So to anybody who messed up once, or more, just keep trying. ;-) Bye.

have you read "story lawrence" on the main teen section? I thought it was rather inspiring on this. Just remember, The mistake of overeating too much, isn't going to change the solution of how to lose weight. So if you mess up in the morning, don't through the day away, dust yourself off, and try again.

Hey guys, I have to share a little mess-up of mine. I had some foods I shouldn't have today, and I didn't exercise. But I plan on going right back to the diet tomorrow. I think sharing my failures as well as my successes with you all will help me stay on track. Talk to you all later.
