Finally serious about losing weight

I've been gaining weight gradually since I stopped schooling my horse 3 or 4 times a week. I kept at 135 for a year but gained 20 pounds in the past year. I got too heavy for my size 8 clothes, outgrew my size 10's and now I'm straining the seams of size 12. In fact I had 2 pairs of jeans split in the seat recently. I decided to get serious about losing weight. I already have a gym membership and go 2 or 3 times a week on my lunch hour because it's near work. I have a gym buddy from my office, ...
I've been gaining weight gradually since I stopped schooling my horse 3 or 4 times a week. I kept at 135 for a year but gained 20 pounds in the past year. I got too heavy for my size 8 clothes, outgrew my size 10's and now I'm straining the seams of size 12. In fact I had 2 pairs of jeans split in the seat recently. I decided to get serious about losing weight. I already have a gym membership and go 2 or 3 times a week on my lunch hour because it's near work. I have a gym buddy from my office, but if she had to skip I used that as an excuse not to go myself. In addition to all that I recently read a health article that said it is impossible to execrcise enough to lose weight if you don't control what you eat as well. That makes sense, after 20minutes on the eliptical machine it only says I burned 190 calories, about equal to 2 slices of bread.
Looking for a calorie chart to start a food diary I stumbled uopn the Sparkpeople website and recognized the value of a supportive community and the tools to track my food and excercise. Lets do this together!

My Goals:
I'm trying to lose about25 pounds in the six months before I go on my next vacation. A friend and I are going to India with an Overseas Adventure Travel tour.
I mad it to my goal weight in time for my vacation, and inspite of three weeks of three times a dy buffets, did not gain any weight on vacation!

My Program:
I've been tracking my food choices and excercise. Doing this has given me the willpower to stop eating when I've had a reasonable amount even at buffets and church potluck suppers.

Personal Information:
I live in Eastern Massachusetts.

Thank you so much. This move has been tough and costing me far more than expected:( Lovely part of the world though and I hope to be sorted out in a few months. I do so hope you are well. Susie

Thanks for your comment and help on my sparkpage, but my vegatarianism went out the door at week three. But I still eat more veggies than meat.
