This is a huge blow to me, as I have been working so hard to lose the weight. But in reflecting back on the week - i know that I have lost the battle with food this week.

It will help me to keep track of the progress I am making. <BR> <BR> 4/10/12 So I have been thinking about what stresses me out. I know that I have a lot of stress.
