I like the structure that tracking and planning provides. I weigh and measure all of my food and plug it all in to my tracker. I find that helps me stay on task. And if I eat too much? The next meal is just a few hours away, and I will get back on track then.

It also helps to find exercise that you actually like. I like walking and biking. I have a sore heel, so it's mostly biking right now. I hate working out on a machine, so if that was what I had planned, I'd fall off track easily.

And join teams. I like teams that offer challenges because it gives me something new to try, something different, something that could potentially be fun. :)

I'm sorry to hear about your dog, Bobasmarie.

I just finished reading "In Defense of Food" by Michael Pollan (great book, btw) so here are some words of wisdom:

"Eat food, not too much, mostly plants."

Not a year ago I was at my ideal weight, never got sick and stayed very active.
At the time I was 100% vegan and ate as cleanly as possible- and I loved it. I loved the food, I loved everything.

I had a ton of tricks for staying fit: but I can only remember these:
*Eat something the minute I wake up
*Eat small portions all day- whenever my body says its hungry

Thats it, thats all I remember.
Several months ago my dog passed away and I was grieving hardcore. I started eating whatever and managed to gain the 2 inches I had worked so hard to lose back.

So if you could share your eating/workout tips with me I would really appreciate it. I am having a really hard time finding my healthy self again.
