[rebelmouse-image 18351099 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Your body is your only body. You don't get another one, so you gotta make this one last. That being said, you're also allowed to do whatever you want, because it IS your body... just, be cautious. You never know when you're going to make the wrong decision.

u/TwiggyTits asked Reddit:

What do you regret doing to your body?

Not taking care of my teeth

Awwww YOU!

[rebelmouse-image 18351101 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I have a MASSIVE tattoo on my left arm that just says "YOU" in huge block letters. I thought when I was 18 it'd be funny to have "a tattoo of you" on my arm. It's too big and blocky and black to cover up and I just hate it.

Le Stretch

[rebelmouse-image 18351102 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Gaining a lot of weight really quickly. I've lost most of it now, but I have permanent stretch marks on my arms, thighs, stomach, and back. It sucks.

The Ringing

[rebelmouse-image 18351103 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I let myself get up to 602lbs....finally after not being able to walk longer than a block or being able to do simple functions I said enough is enough and joined myfitnesspal. 460 days later I have lost 252lbs and now weigh 349lbs.

Skin Pickin'

[rebelmouse-image 18351105 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I have a horrible habit of picking at my skin. Its nothing major, but I do have several tiny scars from it. They will likely be permanent, but I just can't stop! I do it without thinking. When I'm bored, or not doing anything else.

Block Dat Sun

[rebelmouse-image 18351106 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Many years of recklessly avoiding sunscreen. I'm only in my 30s but have already had on basal cell lesion removed. I hate to say it but I know there is more where that came from.

Gummy Yuck

[rebelmouse-image 18351113 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Eating that pound of sugar free gummy bears once. That was easily one of the worst decisions of my life, and I'm a recovering drug addict. The gummy bears were just pure torture. I s*** for over 12 hours. By the end I was so raw I couldn't even use the sensitive skin wet wipes. It was so bad. Meanwhile, my boyfriend at the time (husband now) was laughing at me because I knowingly ate all those gummy bears in one sitting. I still feel sick any time I see gummy bears.

Silicone Nightmare

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.
