"I just don't get hungry!"

Why do we eat?

Some eat because they need to to survive.
Some eat because they love the taste, the texture, the feeling they get when they are full.
And some... just avoid eating as much as possible.

I guess I understand not eating, otherwise known as anorexia. But throwing up after you actually do eat? You'd think that if they care about their appearance so much as to not eat, that they'd care about their organs failing, or their teeth rotting from the acid aswell.

Eating disorders get the best of us. We become so fixated on our appearance and every inch of 'fat' on our bodies, that the layer of skin becomes 'fat' in our eyes. "Research indicates that exposure to images of thin, young, air-brushed female bodies is linked to depression, loss of self-esteem and the development of unhealthy eating habits in women and girls." All of us know atleast one person, if not being us, that want to lose weight. It a large problem throughout the world. Diets that don't even work, workout videos that we eventually just pack away in a box, sometimes not even opening them, and 'healthy foods' that we buy and most times winde up in the garbage next week. We all spend sooo much money on this so called 'problem'. The news makes a big deal about obeisity, but what about anorexia and bullemia?! What about those that don't eat, or throw up their lunch because they feel guilty, or depressed, or fat!? The media is what started the problem. "Don't make a monster, if your gonna whyne about it scaring the s**t out of you later".

Eating diorders are mental illness' often with life threatening physical consequences later on. An estimated 1 in 3 of all dieters develop compulsive dieting attitudes and behaviors. Studies show that a concern of becoming fat starts as early as 7 years old... SEVEN!? Not many people know that anorexia has a higher mortality rate than some cancers! Those with anorexia have a 10% chance of death within 10 years. Between the ages of 15-25 is where the problem truly lies. It is estimated that 5-10% of girls and women suffer from an eating disorder. A common estimation suggest that as many as 10-15 per cent of eating disorders are fatal for those affected. The statistics show that many disorders are not treated because those with the illness either deny it (ALWAYS), or have become very good at camoflauging the symptoms.

Barbie tends to be a goal in so many girls and womens eyes. Do they not know that Barbie's estimates have put her life-size bust between 38 and 40 inches, her waist at 18-24 inches, and her height between five and a half and seven feet, with a weight of 110 pounds. THAT.IS.NOT.POSSIBLE. With those sizes, a human would have to walk on all fours! So many eating disorders and other problems have resulted from Barbies proportions, that Mattel is actually remodelling Barbie all together!

Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge eating, and all the other eating disorders are not a problem with food, but rather a mental disorder. It is not their fault they have this disease, just like it is not cancer patients' faults they have cancer! But it is so important that if you know someone who has it, to speak up. To talk to them, and those who care about the person, and get them help a.s.a.p! Before it's too late. Do not let them tell you no.

The hardest thing to do is watch the one you love, love someone else

Love is a dangerous rollercoaster. The Prince loves the Princess, but she doesn't love him. She needs space, but he crowds her. Outsiders see that they'd probably be great together. Beautiful girl meets sensitive guy. Sounds like it would be "lived happily ever after"... But instead we have "but I'm going to be one of them at graduation, I'm sorry Jacob" situations.

He literally poured his heart into rhymes for this Princess he cares so much about and she said no. Although she is amazing, gorgeous, and super sweet! One can't help but wonder why she can't just give the Prince a chance! After everything he has done, just one dance in the moonlight. Thats all he wants.

And one day. the Prince will hear news of the Princess being married, and he will hurt. He will cry. He will be in depression. But atleast she is happy. Thats all he's ever wanted...

If you don't follow your dreams, who will?

Dont let ANYONE tell you "you will be _______!"

You decide who you are, who you want to be, what you will do with YOUR life! We all have dreams, and only some of us actually have the determination and courage it takes to persue them. This world is a scary place, and not everything seems realistic, but nothing is impossible! If you want to be a photographer... persue photography. If you want to be an astronaut... be one. If you want to be a Disney character at Disney World... GO THERE & TRY! Some people find it acceptable to tell you what they should, can, shouldn't, can't, do. Thats wrong, this is right, theres no money in that industry, be a doctor. But what if we dont want to be a doctor?

Do what you want to do, bottom line. No matter what it relates to, you decide your future. You have a dream, and if you want it bad enough, you can have it. If you don't try, it'll never happen.

Certainly Am Not Trying
Take CANT out of your vocabulary:)

It's sad when peolpe you know, become people you knew....

The people that were in our lives, shaped our lives, showed us what life is, what if they weren't around anymore? What if one day they no longer present in our lives, either because of their choice, or ours? How does one continue day to day work and activities knowing that out there that person is still living, breathing, and your not around to witness their miracle of life? How does one live without wondering every other minute what that person is doing, if they laugh the same as when you were around, if they sleep without tossing and turning like you do, if everytime the phone rings deep down they hope it is you...

I guess we all have someone that we thought would be in our lives forever, but isn't anymore. A friend, family member, spouse, child.... whoever it may be. I guess the key is to keep your head high, and rememberm that although you are not apart of eachother lives anymore, love is always there, it doesn't go away.

It's sad when people you know, become people you knew, when you can walk right past someone like they were never a big part of your life, how you used to be able to talk for hours and now you can barely even look at them. It's sad how times change...

Its easy to fall in love. The hard part is finding someone to catch you

The way he looks at her. The way he holds her. They way he goes where she is just to talk. He cares. He shows it. Others dont. She doesnt see that. Or atleast decides to block it out. She chooses those who care least. No one knows why. She cant describe it to those who ask. It is what it is. He looks into her eyes when she talks to him. He voices his opinions in her life decisions. She likes that. She loves that. She cant get him out of her mind. Yet she continues to talk to the one who doesnt care. As much atleast. He says he cares, but wouldn't he show it? Boys, Guys, Men, more confusing than girls I find. But things are the way they are. The girl will hopefully one day pick the right one. Hopefully one day decide to open her eyes to see who cares, who shows it. One day, she'll be truly happy.
