The Good, the Bad and the UGLY!! (with pics)

The Good: I have accomplished so much the last two weeks at work that those stresses are now OVER!! emoticon

The Bad: My shin and low back are causing me some issues that are highly irritating and depressing me. Nothing I can really do about it so I am mentally trying to move on and just let my body do what it needs to do. I have gained 7 lbs in the last month..DOUBLE GRRRR!!! Can you say "BINGE EATING??" emoticon

The Ugly: is how fat I am feeling from the weight gain. This is NOT the time to be feeling like this with summer coming so I bought myself a new swim suit top and bottom to take before, during and after pics to motivate me more on loosing my last 40 lbs. I lost the first 40 lbs in 5 months....I will DO THIS!! Now that my very large stressful projects are finished for work I can concentrate on myself better. I had my BFF take my pictures today during our lunch hour and I will start the prep of my foods and meal plans, and workouts this weekend. Monday it will begin, with no excuses. I wanted to start the 28 day bikini program that some of my friends on here have been doing for 2 weeks now. I did good the first day, then just dropped it all. I hate being an emotional eater!!!!! Ok so here are my beginning pics for my new journey and I am starting my weight tracker over to my current weight of 159 and my end weight to be 120. I am only 5'1" so as you can see in my pics..I am plenty overweight still.

Ok I think that is enough torcher for you all. So sorry I am super WHITE!! lol

My DH told me that he wants to loose 40 lbs too. This will help me greatly to have a partner close by to keep me accountable.
