Here it is almost a year and a half later....I'm almost back at my heaviest weight and I'm miserable emoticon . I could sit here and explain, but I'm sure it would sound like excuses and I guess the important thing is that I'm getting back on track...but I'm waiting until Monday. Already had plans for a big Mother's Day Brunch....I'm doing 17 day diet ...that works for me.
Last year was just out of control on all kinds of levels....I basically quit taking my meds for about 6 months too emoticon Then I finally got myself back to the Dr....the bad (or I should say worse) news there is that my chest x-ray showed early emphysema....needless to say....really quitting smoking was my first now Tuesday will be 5 weeks smoke free...I'm using an electronic cigarette and that is working great. I felt like I needed to get that situation under control before I addressed the eating.
I went grocery shopping and got all my healthy foods, I weighed my self today....I'm disgusted....I'll do measurements tomorrow ...and I feel like I'm in the right frame of mind to start this adventure again.

    Congratulations. I quit smoking years ago and don't miss it. I had mild emphysema too. Good luck with the 17 Day Diet!

    The previous posters are spot on. We've all been there, done that and bought the t-shirt. The important thing is not to give up. Congratulations on the smoke-free days, to me that is more important than what the scale says.

Who here hasn't started over -- and over... giving up is the only failure, not having to start over. Go back to the beginning, start by making small changes, and take one day at a time. We are here for you!

    Most of us have done this dance a number of times. The most important thing is to keep doing it emoticon

    You are getting healthy! Don't be down on yourself. You're focused on the most important goal first, quitting smoking. That is NOT easy to do, and you've been over a month smoke free! That is AMAZING! Congratulations!

Now that you know you've got that under control, you're moving on to priority #2! You've already got your healthy food, and you've made the commitment to take of YOU and eat right.

You are doing everything right. Let go of any past disappointments and focus on now, because now is what matters, and you're doing the RIGHT thing RIGHT now :)

Good for you! You will do this :-) emoticon
