Things I've learned on this journey -

Just keep swimming....if ya sit down ya won't get up
Sometimes you won't reach your goals, but you will be better off trying
Try the heavier can always put it down
Sometimes I need someone to tell me what to do..and that is OK as long as I do it
As a mom, I find it useful to be able to bench-press my child ;)
Work through your injuries.

Eating after work....
around 4, but as late as the drive home I eat a protein bar..with chocolate in it. It feels like an award, because of the chocolate, and it fills me up so I don't have to munch while cooking dinner. They call it the bewitching hour...not just for kids! I have heard that drinking water to fill you up works, but it isn't just the hunger at that is emotional eating as well for me.

Add Calories alone
you could add fake food to your "do not share list"(Add new food, not from manufacturer or restaurant, then only you see it)..Like food labelled 100 calories = 100 calories and 0 of all the other stuff..then you could add it to your food log. You could have 500, 100, 50, 25, 10 and 1 calorie foods, and just add them modularly as needed.

What are your biggest secrets/tips?
When I started in August, I didn't have much trouble with the lower calories, I was ok...but recently (with the lower weight and the lower RDI), I have found the starvation wall is a monster! I must keep healthy snacks around for those times right after excercise and around 4PM everyday, otherwise I will end up binging on whatever I can find an hour despiration!
