While the motivation is there I find myself not being very good at self control and most of the time I find myself eating something without even realizing that it's bad before I am done and I see clothes that I want to wear or I hear about someone else's weight loss journey and I get so mad at myself for it.
I guess I am not good at being accountable, so I think from now on I will have to use the people here to be accountable.

I read your blog and it sounds so much like my situation. The food has gone in before you realise it and before you get the chance to think about whether it is good for you.
I have found two things that have helped me, though I am sure there are many more and I look forward to other people's suggestions to you....
Firstly I have removed all the really tempting, really bad things from my pantry. And I haven't replaced them with raw broccoli, or anything extreme like that, but just some better choices. When I am ready to take the next step I will gradually bring in even better choices, but I don't want to shock my body too much, and I don't want to have my body revolt and march out the door to the nearest takeaway!
Secondly I have used some of the motivational quotations, and pictures of things I want for the new me, and pasted these posters in my kitchen, in my bathroom, and even one on the outside of my wallet (so if I go to buy something , I think twice).
SP is a wonderful resource and while you're on the system it's easy and logical to make the right choices; in addition, though, you just need to have some little conscience-prodders that remind you of why you want to be the best you that you can be, and why you deserve to look and feel that good!
All the best,
