The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
If I want to eat when I am watching tv or want a special treat still within my calorie range or close to being out of it, I make myself do 25 crunches before I have it. That way I don't feel so bad about my treats.
When ordering a salad always have the dressing on the side.
Dip your fork in the dressing first then in the salad, the last thing to cross your lips will be the dressing cutting down on the amount you use.
The way I make sure I get enough water in each day is to take my water bottle with me in the car wherever I go. I get bored in the car so I drink my water.
If you think you are hungry just drink a glass of water and get busy doing something. If it's real hunger it won't go away if it's just I want to eat something you'll forget about it.
It is very difficult to meet clients and maintain a healthy eating schedule and habits but just eat less and try to stick to the least fatty offerings on the menu

My sister and I started a support group at our church. We meet once a week and share ideas. My sister talks about nutrition and I demonstrate exercises that can be done by anyone, anytime. At the end of the meeting, we choose buddy and take walk in the parking lot. It's been a great success.
There are no huge mysteries to weight gain or loss. Everything comes down to calories ingested and calories burned. And Spark can help you solve any apparent mysteries, as long as you keep using the trackers faithfully.
Schedule some kind of exercise every single day.. even if it is 10 minutes. I have been doing that for 6 weeks now and exercise is now not an option for me. Even if I am so busy and can come up with a million excuses, I make sure I get SOMETHING in! It will eventually not be an option!
