Welcome back! I'm back too, starting today. Your post grabbed my attention because I have a new phrase that I coined... Today is the FIRST DAY OF ME!!!! And everyday from now on will be the FIRST DAY OF ME! I've learned that I can sit back and look at my past and see all of my missteps, or I can realize that the only thing affecting tomorrow is today. Every day is special and unique, and I have to approach each day as it comes. I've decided I'm not even going to weigh in or meal plan or anything. I've always focused so much on the details (food diary, tracking my weight loss on a spreadsheet, etc). All the energy I put into those things kind of distracted me from focusing on actually doing what I needed to do. Not saying that the above methods don't work... just not for me. Anyway, I'm glad to be back, and I'm glad that you've decided to come back too!
