Documenting the before is so smart! I wish I had done it. Well, I sort of did many months ago but not on THIS weight loss try, lol. It will be fun watching ourselves shrink down!

ooooh, I hated taking the before pictures - but think of how good it will feel to post new pictures of your smaller self???? You're gorgeous dahling :) And you have CHEEKBONES - I crave cheekbones...I'm all cheek, no bones.
Good for you - it's hard to suck it up and take these pictures, but I think in the end we'll be glad we did!

Before pictures always sucks - that's why it's so great to get your after pictures :D don't worry about that binge, it's all in the past.

I admire you for posting your before pics. This is just another step on your journey to weight loss.

I can't wait to see the after pics. You look awesome now, but wait until you lose the weight you want...watch out hubby!!!

Have a great day!

You are so beautiful! I know that posting those before pics was tough, but when you get to goal, you'll be able to look back at the old you. I'm sorry you had a rough day yesterday, but just pick yourself back up and keep moving forward. So many times I've let my "binges" stop my progress. Don't fall into that trap. You're doing so good, so DON'T STOP.

Since you know that your hubby leaving is a "trigger" for your binges, maybe you need to come up with a plan to help avoid that the next time he has to leave...

You're so pretty! :) And ditto what everyone before me has said - imagine at the end of the year when you look back on these photos, you'll be like, damn, I'm hot! :)

About the bodyband workout, I ran downstairs to Borders as soon as I read your comment (we have one in the building I work in) but they only had the set that's on Gaiam.com. The one I had came with just one bodyband, and the set has 3, so I guess that's why it's $30. I found just the workout vhs on amazon for super cheap:

then all you'd have to do is buy a bodyband or other resistance band. I'll email you privately with my other option! LOL!

I wish you would be kinder to yurself

Ok... no telling yourself your hideous! First of all, you are beautiful! Second of all, youre taking steps towards being happier with your body and thats huge.

And just think how great it will feel to post each month and feel more and more confident with yourself.
