Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 226 lb (BMI: 41), Goal: 135 lb - so this week was horrible, working and school have made me very stressed which has caused me to eat. I know there should be no excuses so in general it's my fault. I'm so close to losing a total of 50 pounds and i'm just going to pick up the slack this week. I know how bad it was so i wont weigh myself now, i'll work really hard this week and hope that i can get down to atleast 225. LETS DO THIS LOL =)

You've totally got this! Sometimes we slip up, but the important thing is to pick yourself right back up & go on like the mistake never happened & not repeating the mistake day after day. Honestly though, I know you don't want to weight yourself (& I totally don't blame you)...but I've found for me that stepping on the scale & actually SEEING the number is a huge wakeup call & actually MOTIVATES you to get back on the wagon. Sometimes seeing the truth right there in your face makes you really realize you need to get back on track. Just a little tip to stop from binging/eating when you're not it something else first. If you're craving chips, for example, instead of going to the cupboard & getting them...just tell yourself you'll do it later...and watch a tv show first, or even better go for a walk first...more often than not, doing something else will completely take your mind off eating!
