So i just got through eating, and i have been falling off the wagon quite a bit as of late. No diet pills which my bf/fiance says i don't need anyway but they do help me from eating everything in site. To top it all off I am trying or attempting to quit smoking which would cause the overeating. Ugh. From one extreme to another. Prayers accepted.

    I've never had the habit of smoking and so I cannot even begin to understand how hard this must be for you. So many people do struggle and overeating does tend to be tied with quitting smoking.

Other than this, just try to stay positive. I would suggest getting a buddy - maybe your boyfriend can be this for you, but it may be better if it were someone else. Basically someone that can help keep account of your progress.

Set goals - mark your calendar (both on being healthier and quitting, which is part of being healthy)

Here are a few links with information about how to quit:

There really is too much information out there proving how bad smoking is for someone - not to mention the cost. Think of the shoes and clothes you can buy instead as REWARDS for eating healthy and exercising.

IDEA! Make a commitment to save the money you would normally use for smoking and donate it to an organization that fights for Cancer.

Sorry to write so much - you inspired me. Good luck!

    Diet pills don't help you lose weight and keep it off. You have to make healthy choice in your food and make those healthy choices healthy habits so they will stick. use the nutrition tracker to help you track everything that goes into your mouth.

    You're quitting smoking??????!!!!!!! You go, Girl! Set yourself a "Streak", eg: 'x' number of days smoking 'X' fewer cigarettes. Be crazy faithful using the Nutrition Tracker and do some exercise--remember, even 10 minutes, 3 times a day makes a real difference.

    You can do it, just knowing you need to is a great step. And you have support at home and here!!

  I think you're being too hard on yourself. Perhaps you should do one or the other, not both; quit smoking or lose some weight. Both are very hard to do. Good luck.
