You need to set up your trackers. This will tell you what you are eating and it will provide a recommendation as to how much you should be eating. Then, you can set up you exercise tracker. You can compare your food intake with the amount of calories you are burning. Spend as much time as possible setting up your trackers.
It does sound like you are on the right track. SP will help you to stop berating yourself.
Those who make the worst use of their time are the first to complain of its shortness. --Jean de la Bruyere

Today I decided to pick the truth, stop being mean to myself and give my self a chance to be the best that I can be...on any level! I am fat and unhappy...I just carry all of that in a good way:). I know why...because I eat too much, I snack at night and the more I wanted to stop, the more I eat. I was so ignorant once! Never had problems with the weight until I gave birth to my daughter and realize that I gain 60 lb!! She is almost seven, and I never lost that:). I moved to America, 17 years ago from Europe, and gained 70 lb....Here, I said it! Being honest and ready to change that. I have to...for my self, for my daughter! I am so tired of dropping weight, than gaining again, so sick of stuffing myself when I am not hungry and thinking how I'm going to start tomorrow, fresh. I have to make a change, I want to make that change and I will give myself that gift...to be free, because until now, I felt trapped! So, here I am...positive, HONEST, and ready to go! Tomorrow is finally here:)))
