So if your reading about me....
I am in my early 50s, have 4 kids, 3 grandbabies, 3 cats (and one foster cat), 2 dogs, and 4 rats. I work in IT in applications support, mostly databases. Quit smoking a few years back and gained the customary 20LBs. Change of life (you ladies know what I mean) meant not losing those pounds. A long commute and ever increasing deskwork have added a few more to that total. Husband is obese and that doesn't help me either. From 140ish about 6 years ago to a top weight of 180, I needed to get a grip on my weight gain before I started to see severe health problems. I joined FatSecret in August 2009 (after finding the app) shortly before my physical. Since joining here, I have lost around 30LBs. I used the Spike Diet and encourage calorie counters to give it a read.

So a brief update. Most of what is up there is true...I had met my goal and kept the weight at bay for about 2 years. I took a job where the husband was responsible for cooking, and that failed miserably. He would bring home food more often than not. I gained 25lbs in one year. I have a lot to lose to look good for my vow renewal (3oth Anniversary) in the Bahamas next June.

Don't wait, start now
I have asked the exact same question before. Why do some folks need a 'start' date. What about September 1st is going to be different that today?
To me, thats a procrastination excuse. When September 1 comes, nothing changes except for the start day, which now becomes Ocober 1, or heck, lets just start taking care of ourselves January 1st, you know...after the holidays.

What do you eat at night?
I'll second the cottage cheese. I use to be in the "no snack before bed" camp. Found that when I got up in the morning I was ravenous, or found that I was feeling hungry before going to sleep, which means a restless night. I really started to notice this after adding Body Pump to my week.
I now eat a small snack before turning in. I love cottage cheese with a fresh seasonal fruit. Light, tasty and satisfying

Morning Protein
Yeah, I didn't get that he wanted to eat while driving either. When I drive, that's all I do. Last thing I need is to be in an accident cause I spilled a hot sandwich on my lap. Just say no to distracted driving. Anyway, you should stop and enjoy your food. It shouldn't be something you do while doing something else.

How do you lose the last 10 lbs???
What ever you are doing now, switch it up. Don't hang on to the same eating or workout routines week in/week out. Your body needs to be constantly guessing and challenged.
