Hi and welcome!! the first thing.. theses are things that work for me.. maybe not for you.. i plan ahead on exercise and food.. helps me a lot.. i do weights 3 times a week.. and i try to find fun things to do so its not like exercise. I also use smaller plates when i do eat and put more veggies than meat.. I try not to have bad food around so i am not tempted.. Also i dont go out to eat much.. if i do.. i put half in a togo box.. so i dont eat as much.. good luck on your journey.. read a lot.. helps a lot too..

The best tip is the one I think you've already figured out for yourself - you need something different from a "diet". You need to change the way you live and think about food, eating and physical activity. When making changes, don't just look at whether they will help you lose a pound or two. Look at whether it is a change to a behavior you want to make permanent in your life. If you are only doing something "for now", then you'll go back to behaviors that led to the gain and regain pattern.
