    My number one rule is...
    Be patient and don't stress about it. A little nible here and there is fine, but don't give up and throw everything away.

    I don’t have a food scale, but I measure EVERYTHING! I’ve found that by seeing how many useless calories are in many condiments as I measure them, I’ve opted out and switched to spices.

    On the weekend, I prepare / plan my breakfasts and lunches for the weekday. Dinners vary but I try to have a vegetable dish every night.
    I don’t eat after 8 pm.
    I gave up adding sugar to my tea. Then gave that up all together. Now I only drink non-caffeinated tea / herbal tea.
    I try to complete the My Fitness diary every night. I like to see what my future weight would be with the current day’s consumption. I check my nutrition balance and try to eat more protein and less fat the next day. The Firness tracker keeps me motivated to keep going.

    You mentioned this but really the laws of physics still apply CICO that's all there is to it for me!

    But tracking religiously as mentioned earlier really made me think about what to eat and whether or not it was worth the calories.

    To count calories and be patient and trust the process.

    <snip>...trust the process.

    THIS is key, if you are doing your part, the process WILL work. Nicely said.

    use rules as more as guidelines. For instance the program I was in had the "rule" don't eat after 7 pm. But if I haven't had supper yet I still eat but if I find myself piecing after 7 I tell myself to stop.
    You have to log your food to lose. I lost most one summer by watching what I ate and being mindful of what I ate and increasing exercise but did not log food. Also have lost when I did log so which ever is most helpful to you.

    Be honest: About your logging, exercise and water; about why you want to lose weight, and keep it off; and that you are worth every minute of it, however long it takes. Consistency is key. Reading others' posts is HUGELY motivating.
