Hi :) thank you to the people who have replied to me. It's now the 20th, and I posted my message on the 11th and
things haven't really changed. Lara: yes, I definitely agree with you about summer ending. I live in Minnesota, and
so when winter comes, it's like "who cares anymore!" - and everybody around me (co-workers, friends, family) encourages
me to eat, eat, eat. It's like keeping the candy dish full at work, going out to eat too much, all that crap...and then I fall
off a diet and don't care what I eat anymore. Yikes, I don't think I said that very well, but hopefully you get the idea...
I am VERY worried, but I am little bit nervous(?) to actually go to a school counselor and say that I might have a problem. I
am worried for a few reasons, because looking at me, i don't think people would take me seriously. Plus, I never find the time
for any of that. I lay in bed at night and say "okay, tomorrow I will call a counselor" - but it never really crosses my mind when
it comes down to it. I think reading a book might be VERY helpful, and I'd like to try that. I have three (!!!!) empty cartons of "fat-free"
ice cream in my freezer right now (I have a bad habit of leaving empty containers in the fridge) and my eating habits
are continuing to go down the tubes. I really am surprised and disappointed in myself because when I was younger, my parents
tought me very good eating habits, and I always ate breakfast. But it's awful now! :(

I just don't want to start gaining weight, I want to feel better about myself...

and yes, i'd love to correspond via e-mail, so here's a few addresses incase one goes kaput:

later :)
