Hello friends. Last update was about a year ago where my goal was to lose enough weight to fit into my bridesmaid dress for my friend's wedding in September. Well, I succeeded! The dress fit perfectly, I didn't have to wear Spanx (THANK GOD) and the wedding was wonderful. And now I have gained the weight back since then. I'm back, once again, and I hope to keep this going. Usually what happens is I eat healthy for most of the day and then it all comes crashing down at dinnertime (portion control is the one thing I really struggle with) or after dinner when my boyfriend breaks out the snacks, like last night. I had leftover quiche first...not too bad...and then I had two crab cakes...not HORRIBLE but not the healthiest...and then my boyfriend and I split a bag of popcorn. And the came the freakin' Freihofer chocolate chip cookies (my fav) and then I had a glass of wine. I went to bed feeling like crap. But the difference between last night and any other night is I tracked it all. This morning I looked at how many calories I went over by and told myself that today is a new day. The weather is getting nice so i'm outside walking/running practically every day. I'm no longer doing Weight Watchers and I canceled my gym membership last summer due to being tight on money but I'm not concerned. I was able to lose 50 pounds without either of those things. So here we go. BTW, I love the SparkPeople app! It's definitely going to make it easier for me to track everything!

    Good to see you back! I'm in the same boat. I managed to keep my original weight loss off for about a year...lose some, gain some, now I'm back up again. It's so important to know our triggers. we can do this!! emoticon

    It's great to see you back again! I know what a struggle it can be to over eat in the evenings. I do the same thing and it's something I constantly have to work on. It's great that you have recognized what you need to do and I wish you lots of success in your journey!

    I have the same problem I am good all day and tend to eat a larger dinner then want a snack but I like salty snack instead. I wish you the best of luck.
