Have had some ups and downs but I've found that not logging food did lead to some gain, and not acknowledging that made it worse than it had to be. But I started logging again when I decided I didn't want to go completely backward, and got it back under control.
I've been logging my workouts and making sure my calorie burn is good, and lately have started reading "Mindless Eating" by Brian Wansink, and trying to keep that in the front of my thinking. As it turns out, I am very susceptible to hidden food cues (as are most of us), and when I pay attention, I'm less likely to mindlessly pop those extra calories in, especically the ones that are nutritionally lacking. Lately it's been a little easier to pass by those open candy dishes, because I have a healthy snack waiting at my desk. And this morning I was very near the bottom of my weight goal range for the first time in months!
