First of all set a reasonable goal weight that you can maintain after you reach it. I like to eat and I like my wine with dinner. I am not "skinny" but I feel good when I look in the mirror. Then commit to the fact that this should be a lifestyle change...forever...not a diet.
The greatest help logging in what I ate was it made me aware of portion size and how many calories are in many foods. Now I try to make healthier choices eating more fruits, vegetables and lean meat & fish. I keep lower calorie snack items around so that I don't go crazy. Example instead of ice cream I buy low fat yogurt or sherbet...and I use a half-cup bowl to serve it in. Sometimes all I need is a taste to be satisfied. No food is off limits but if I know it's high in calories I try to limit myself to a small portion. I started with Fat Secret in March of 2011 and met my goal (a 30 lb.loss) by December. I stopped logging my foods but tried to maintain the same mindset. I did well for a long time but I did gain 7 lbs. toward the end of 2012 so I'm back to logging in my foods to lose that. So far I've lost 2 of those 7 lbs. but have fluctuated up and down 2-3 lbs. since then. I know if I got more excercise I'd probably easily lose that last 5...I exercised more when I was losing.
