Hi and welcome back Hattie! I also lost weight the first time I joined in 2012. But by the Summer of 2013 I had gained it all back plus plus plus.
This time I am doing things differently. No more calorie counting/portion control. I have admitted to myself and anyone else in earshot that I am a sugar addict and I was quickly descending into alcoholism as a way to get liquid sugar into my system fast. No more. I am now sworn to abstinence. No sugar, no wheat, no simple carbs. Nothing that stimulates an over production of insulin.
