    Very low energy

    My energy levels are often low. It can be very frustrating too be low on energy most of the time. I find it helpful to keep pushing through otherwise I would just isolate myself. I am not on any medication and I have found exercise helpful in the past. I am walking a bit at the moment and I will...

    Fear of becoming unhealthy

Thankfully I am free of those now, as I started exercising and I lost more than 15 kilos and I'm at...

    Should I worry?

    My friend has been making herself sick after eating for the past month or so. She doesn't do it regularly, and she only does it in her own home, but I'm worried it's going to be the start of something. She's never been happy with her weight, but she struggles to lose weight in healthier ways...
  17. Prince Buster


    It was a real struggle at first, but I am starting to notice the benefits of going to the gym regularly. I was told it was good for serotonin levels and must admit I do feel better mentally after. The downside though is that sometimes it wipes me out and I am also suffering from various pains...
