Well, it's been really busy and stressful teaching and I've fallen off the wagon. I've been eating pretty much whatever I want and I've gained 4 pounds. I'm going to have to get back to tracking online. It's just so annoying though. Why can't I just control myself without having to write down every single thing! Sparkpeople works, I know that, I've done it many times. I just need to not care so much about being completely accurate. For me, it is just having to account for everything. I started eating lunch at school again which always makes me feel like I'm shooting myself in the foot but they do have this new meal calculator online and I've started just inputing the whole meal as a new item in the tracker and just not saving it to favorites. Maybe then at least I can avoid some of the extras if I know I already planned to eat only certain things. It is possible to eat a reasonable amount of calories there, I just will feel like I'm not getting my money's worth because I might have to omit one of the two sides that you get or whatever. Anyways, lets get this wagon moving!

    Good job on recognizing that you need to get back on track so quickly:) 4 lbs is a lot easier to take off than 40!

    I hate having to track too, but it's a must for me. I just accept it - like balancing my checkbook, I need to keep track of what I'm eating and my activity.

    You can do it!

    You can do this! At first I didn't like writing everything down, but now It's everyday and it really keeps me on track.

    Hey, we all go there, trust me. I had to quit eating school lunches. Ours are very yummy, but portion control is not in the lunch lady's vocabulary and the fat content was astronomical!!! I'm having a tough time jumping back onto that wagon myself now, but I know I'll get there-and so will you!
