I would tell my young self to keep dancing and walking all the time.  Start using mosturizer sooner, it makes a difference.  Don't be so shy, it's easy to talk to people, just breathe and go for it.

Think healthy; think young; think a bit; think fitbit!

Now the Fitbit would be great to have. I think it would encourage me to walk more, do a food journal, and check on my sleeping habits. Thanks for giving me a chance.

I'd say, "exercise and keeping active is important.  It is not just calories in , but calories out too.  Anything to keep exercise fun and enjoyable is important to keep going.  A Fitbit helps do just that.

I would tell my younger self: 1. Don't listen to what other says, you are not fat , you are beautiful and heathly.  And don't do go on fad diets as you get older.

2. Conitune to play tennis, so I can have a better game later.

I would tell my younger self the following:

  • baby oil should not be used as suntan oil
  • cigarettes don't make you look cool
  • being drunk does not make you look classy
  • find a book you liked to read-make note of the author-read more books
  • volunteer at nursing home and a NICU 
  • interview your grandparents and/or parents before it's too late
  • eat healthy/exercise - enjoy the "no no" food in moderation - you do need to LIVE
  • have no regrets

It is always fun to win something. This is a fitbit. Either you have a goal to get fit or a goal to just sit and do nothing. My goal is to enjoy evey moment of life with an upbeat attitude. I would love to wear a fitbit when I am doing this that make me happy. If I don't win this it won't determine whether I exercise or not, I am the only one who will pick up my feet and go "a fitbit can't make my feet move, I do". Have a super happy day.

I would tell my younger self to not be so self-conscious about your body.  Just continue to eat in moderation, and not always deny yourself dessert!  Walk more and often, and enjoy who you are.  I always thought I was "too heavy", and now I look back at pics of myself and say, "wow, I really looked much better than I thought, and too bad I didn't know it then".
