Ht. 5'2", Start: 239 lb, Today: 219 lb (BMI: 40), Goal: 145 lb - Well it has been another horrible night :( It seems like when I have a bad day at work my diet is blown. Then I sit and cry because I am completely unhappy with my body. I haven't worked out in three days! And I have done this before, I know how to loose weight...why am I having so much trouble this time?? My biggest issues are dinner and before bed. My boyfriend is a late night muncher and I just seem to follow, (knowing I shouldn't) I need some kind of motivation...

its also good to get in the habit of logging everything that you eat, that way no snacking can creep its way in, and if it does, it will stare you in the face! Try the food and fitness planner on or just log it on a piece of paper you keep up somewhere.

I've seen this on TV for motivation.
Take a picture of yourself when you looked your absolute best, and a picture of when you looked your worst (biggest)
Put them side-by-side on the refrigerator and decide before you snack which image you want more.
You've come such a long way! Don't get too discouraged, we all slip up. When you're tempted to have a snack at night, have a taaaaaaaaaaaaall glass of water. That can fill you up :)
