Hi welcome! Tracking calories eaten and drunk (drank? ) is the only way to know what is going on. I went way over today, but I know exactly where and why. And the best part is, tomorrow, I will get up and start a new day. SP is not an all or nothing diet. You are not a failure, and you didn't "go off" your diet because you ate a little too much, you just need to get back in the groove. No guilt, no punishment, no wagging finger. You are only accountable to yourself!

Hi everyone. I'm new to sparkpeople - just started Sunday - and am loving it so far. As a classic yo-yo dieter, I am determined to step out of the "diet" mentality and begin making lifestyle changes instead.
I began drastically reducing my meat consumption after helping my teen do a research paper on factory farming. Since January of this year, I've basically been eating a lacto-ovo diet and eating organic, family farm raised meats on occasion. I am allergic to soy, so tofu & most meat substitutes are not an option for me.
Before joining spark people, I lost around 25 lbs just from cutting out sugar and eating mostly vegetarian, but gained back about 5 lbs from sliding into old habits of eating out & eating sweets. I find that tracking my calories really works for me, and have lost 4 lbs this week just by tracking.
