Massive picture post

so this morning started off kind of bad… after I posted yesterday… I went on an eating rampage

2012-07-29 06.16.36

I just cannot starve myself… 2 shakes and a bowl of yogurt for dinner… what was I thinking??!! I know better. Dang, but I am always looking for the quick fix, the easy route… in weight matters there just is not a quick fix!! so back to normal. End of freak out mode, it was silly. Truthfully I feel kind of embarrassed I reacted the way I did, but that is over Embarrassed smile 

I never post the pictures in the order I want, I am just not that patient, so anyway on with it!!
