Definitely, a routine helps.
A good balance of foods, including the carbs found in good, healthy vegetables will also keep you satisfied and help you reach your goals.

Best wishes.

Tracking is definitely important! Also, make sure you keep some kind of snack in your desk so you aren't tempted if there are goodies in the lounge. That helped me last year when I taught; I had a container of almonds in my desk or an apple (especially on Tuesday and Thursday Treat days!) so I could munch on that while the kids were out. Prepping on Sundays and freezing helps a lot too so it's one less thing you have to worry about during the week :)

Carbs don't make you gain weight, too many calories do. ;)

It's good that you're adding daily walking! Exercise is critical for healthy living. To get back on track, start tracking your nutrition. Weigh and measure everything. Don't guess... know!

You'll get there. :)

I'm a teacher and I've gained weight this summer. I know it's probably partly because of not working, but I've added an almost daily walk. I've also had a couple of health issues the last couple of months.

These last 2 weeks have been hard, first a vacation with the family and then 4 days of PD. At the PD they supplied the lunches, they weren't too bad, but a couple of days they were heavy on the carbs.

I need to lose about 15 lbs. and the daily routine of the school year will help.
