I'm in the same boat Kelly. I had gastric bypass surgery almost 8 years ago, (wow- didn't realize it was that long!). The pounds melted off so easily at first- then there was the "honeymoon" phase when I could eat anything and not gain weight. That mindset of mindless eating contributed to almost a 30 pound gain.
When I joined FitDay in April and started logging my food it was a drastic, and I mean DRASTIC wake up call. I apparently had no idea of portion sizes and what I was really eating. The tools here are a great help to me.
Just start by keeping track of what you're eating and it will make sense.
