Hi, Pamela, and welcome! emoticon Quitting smoking and surgery both help pack on the weight. I quit smoking 15 years ago and I'm still trying to lose the 20 lbs. I put on from that, as well as an extra 15 lbs. I picked up along the way. So, give yourself a break and don't have all the homemade goodies staring you in the face and saying "eat me!" emoticon It might be very helpful for you to stop baking for DH - at least for a while until you get yourself back on track with the eating. emoticon

Here is my best advice - not complicated and it works: 1) Use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully, every single day, and check 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. 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 emoticon ; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually ENJOY doing and can do with your medical issues, 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 - and remember you aren't trying out for the Olympics - just do what you can because it's all about getting your body moving emoticon ; 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! emoticon 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! emoticon

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 emoticon . Spark teaches you a new lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food emoticon

Hello! My name is Pamela and here is my story. January 2012 I got down to a size 6 for the first time in my life! Then it happened. I quit smoking the end of January. Boom! I had major surgery in May. Boom boom! I now have 35 pound to lose! No fair! I have several medical issues that preclude a lot of types of exercise. I can only do no or low impact. I recently managed to obtain a rebounder! It really makes a difference. I "jog" on it for at least 10 minutes a day. I am also married to one of those Danish dessert monsters! He can eat tons of it without gaining an ounce! I bake for him all the time, and sometimes it is just too much for me. Oatmeal cookies just kill me. I am trying so hard to get back to my skinny pants!! Help!
