Your story reads like mine. I went through a break up and quit smoking and gained 40 pounds. Losing has been very difficult to say the least! I agree sparkpeople has helped me greatly as well. 1906 days ago
That's some pretty amazing progress. I too ended up here as a result of smoking. Within three days I realized I needed to exercise to keep the demons at bay and so I had to work on weight as well since the two seem to go together rather well.
