Hi, Happy, and welcome I know where you are coming from. I quit smoking 15 years ago and when I did I instantly put on 20 lbs. It still was the best decision I ever made - in spite of the weight gain.
Here is my best advice - not complicated and it works: 1) Use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully, every single day, and print out the daily report on that page so you can make sure you are getting the proper balance of fats, carbs, and protein. This will keep you honest and accountable for your choices. Checking your report each day is critical - you want to make sure you are getting the right % of nutrients and not just eating empty calories. Remember, it is possible to stay within your calorie range eating "junk" but that isn't going to promote weight loss and it certainly won't maintain it in the long run ; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually ENJOY doing and then do them 3-4X a week. If you like what you are doing the chances are much better that you will stick with it ; 3) Stay active with your Team(s) because this is the place you will get encouragement, motivation, and support - including hugs on those days when things are especially tough! and; 4) Try to have fun with this journey to slimness and better health! It's a given that if you enjoy something you will stick with it!
One last thought: it isn't important how fast or slowly you lose your weight. This is one area where 'slow and steady wins the race' is more then just some old cliche . Spark teaches you a new lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food
The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6 TLSB

Welcome, I find it helpful to check in with sparkpeople everyday. I spin the wheel, record my food, & read some posts or messages. It seems to help & sometimes I even post myself. Hope you have a blessed day & continue on your new lifestyle. One more thing I did the 10-minute exercise challenge. When I finished I felt great. Now I make sure I exercise 20-minutes. Just a little goes a long way. LOL
Just joined the team today. I've been trying to get back to a healthy lifestyle now for the past several months since I've been putting on weight after quitting smoking. Nothing seems to be grabbing my attention for more than 2 weeks. I'd love to hear what has worked for you - you never know, it could me my "ah ha" moment.
