Can some of you guys give me some helpful hints on getting back on track?
Getting back to the basics is the best thing I can think of. Focus on protein first, cut the starchy carbs out, perhaps the 5 day Pouch Test? Try going back to your favorite protein drink for a couple of meals/snacks per day.
How's your exercise level been? Reverting to no exercise is so easy, but once you get back into the groove you'll be surprised how much your body craves that oxygen boost every day.
Best wishes....hang in there. You can do this!
Dense protein first
No drinking with meals
No soda pop, ever
Exercise daily, preferably 45 minutes total each day
I also make sure to take all vitamins daily and drink at least 64 oz of water.
Good luck. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
In October, we adopted a newborn baby boy. Between that and Christmas, I gained 10 pounds. And, I know exactly how I did it. Snacking, eating holiday cookies, drinking 2 glasses of wine instead of 1, etc.
But, I'm down 4 of those 10 with 6 to go. And, I'm still eating. Protein first, then veggies/fruit, and some carbs. I know I love my glass of wine in the evening so I plan for that. I've gone back to using myfitnesspal.com. Tracking what I eat is soooooo helpful.
You CAN do this! Let us know how we can help.

Most posts indicate:
less than 40 carb
At least 64 ounces water
Wait at least 3 hours between eating
Track your calories and protein (I use myfitnesspal.com- free and easy)
My NUT has me at:
90 grams of protein (based on height, I am 6'1)
3 meals, 2 snacks
She does not restict carbs under 40, but rather uses this formula
Divide your daily calorie allowance in half. Take that number and divide by 4- that is your carb target. For example, I have a 600 calorie target divided by 2 is 300. 300 divided by 4 is 75. Hence, my carb target according to my NUT is 75.

So the first thing I did was get my protein powder and I made sure that I had 3 protein shakes a day, I cleaned up my food intake, limiting my cookie habit. It has been since October that I have been back on track and I have lost 16 lbs, now at 154. My original goal was 150, so I am almost there. I also started yoga and walking an hour a day.
You can do this!! Go back to basics.
