Again I return to begin again...

After a 3 month hiatus from calorie tracking and falling off the wagon with eating healthier, I'm recommitting myself. Gained back 10 lbs over that 3 months, which really got my attention last week when I stepped on a scale.

This week is simply getting back in sync with tracking my calories. Takes a little bit of adjustment to putting that back into the routine. Also, working at eliminating the soda out of my diet because I just cannot keep my consumption reasonable and that becomes a whole lot of calories.

So yeah. That's what I've got right now.

    Well good luck! It is hard working getting started again, but once you get it going again it is easy :)

    I did the same, beginning to snack more and overdoing...thus a 10 lb. gain here, too. The hardest part was to stop eating without thinking after dinner so I'm concentrating on eating dinner and maybe have some fruit later, and that's it! Dropped 3 of the 10 in about 1 week and the evenings are getting easier. The main thing is to catch it before it becomes a 20 lb. gain. Been there, done more!

    Welcome back!

    I'm starting again as well, about 2 weeks in. My eating habits are okay, but I suck at logging....

    I got a new toy (FitBit) that's helping me this time. I feel more accountable with a constant reminder. :)

    Good Luck!! I'm in a similar situation. Lost 20 lbs two years ago, and then have gained back apx. 15 lbs. I'm back on track too!!
