It's okay, Lisa! There's a learning curve to this; it's a habit that sometimes takes a while to establish. Here's what I do. My computer's close to the kitchen, so I weigh my food and track things as I'm preparing them. At first, this whole process seemed cumbersome and impossible, but I just stuck with it (at first, begrudgingly, I'll admit!). Now, it would feel very awkward not to track what I eat right before I have it.
It's been my experience that the more accurately I track, the more certain my success is. At this point, I'm maintaining - but having been a binge-eater for decades (really since childhood), it's the one thing that's enabling me to maintain my weight, even through the holiday season.
All the best to you, and I promise that if you keep working with this, you'll be successful.
