I agree with ANNELIZABETH. Having a food tracking system is great. It may be time consuming, but it definitely keeps you accountable and it can give you insight on what you're eating and when (i.e. in times of stress, you may be eating a certain "sometimes" food).
Welcome back to Sparkpeople. If possible, I encourage you to find a buddy either in "real life" or on Sparkpeople and keep one another accountable. It always helps me to have a buddy.
I've been having a slight kitchen issue as well. Because of that I have been eating prepared meals from the grocery store (i.e. the garden salads, the fruit salads, the bean salads, chicken breasts, etc.) or eating out. I've been trying to plan my meals to better my eating. I'm also going to start back to having smoothies. It always helps me up my veggie intake.
I'm not sure if any of the above has helped! But welcome back and enjoy all the great people and resources!
