Here's what you need to know about me: I'm a workaholic. Literally. I've said I don't have time to workout, that I'm too busy, that I don't know how to eat right.
Last year, I had to get my gall bladder out. It was a major surgery-a surgery that should've been a wakeup call, but it wasn't. I felt awful before the surgery, and after I got it out, my whole eating pattern changed. I wasn't able to eat properly and still am trying to learn what I can eat that won't make me ill.

I'm trying to make myself feel better about myself. Any relationship I've had has diminished-I don't feel comfortable naked, and any guy that says I'm beautiful makes me feel like they just want to get into my pants. Let's face it-I'm a 22 year old female with no self-esteem, and it's reflected in everything.
I don't even use makeup anymore. And I'm still a workaholic.

Today I went to the gym for 20ish minutes. I guess that's a start,right?

20ish minutes at the gym is definitely a start. keep it up! is it possible to go for a walk during your lunch break?

what is about work that you value so much?
