performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

Hi everyone! I a 42 year old single parent looking to get her life and health back on track. I was never overweight until I had my son (that was over 17 years ago). I have lost and regained over 60 pounds dieting. I have tried a lot of diets and successfully lost weight, but ultimately couldn't stick to them. I decided to try again but using a different aproach this time. I am not going to follow a specific diet, but I am going to track my food and set up an exercize routine. I need to actually change my entire life style for this to work. Yep, I have my work cut out for me!

Weekend Woes. I need help!
Thanks everyone for your advice. I am trying to incorporate your thoughts and experience into my own eating plan. Maybe I'ii get this thing right yet!

Weekend Woes. I need help!
Oh man....I made it through the weekend relatively unscathed. I did a little planning which helped, and ate out less. lol, I think that made the biggest difference. Now this weekend is going to be tough between the Easter candy and a birthday/Easter dinner at Outback Steakhouse! I think I have the dinner planned alright. At least I know what to order. Now all I have to do is not eat too much candy....

Weekend Woes. I need help!
Thank you so much for your advice. I will try planning out my weekend and see if that gives me more self-control. If anyone else has some suggestions I would be grateful for any thoughts or ideas you might have.

Weekend Woes. I need help!
Monday - Friday I can stick to my diet pretty well, but the weekends....oh....the weekends.

I'll be out and about and suddenly it's lunch time, "Hey, I'm hungry. Let's get some lunch." And it all goes down hill from there. I am not sure why it is that once I go off, even a little, I end up giving up for the day. I really, really need to figure out how to stop this. It's killing my weight loss.

Anybody have any suggestions? I need help! Sad

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to reduce water retention?
The past two weeks I have started retaining extra water weight. I realized it when my weight started fluctating by 3-6 lbs over night. With the amount it is jumping around I have no idea if I am gaining or losing weight. Very frustrating.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of extra water weight. This isn't a health issue. I don't have any swelling or tenderness in my ankles or legs, just a jump in weight.
