Hi and welcome to the team. I here to tell you it can be done. I also smoked and overate and felt like if I didn't do something about it soon ~ I wouldn't be around to see my grandaughter grow up. I quit smoking about 7 years ago, and just last year I got around to losing weight. I am now almost at my goal weight and I feel better than I have in years. Oh yeah ~ I'm also going through menopause.
This team will give you the motivation you need to lose the weight. Someone is always willing to help when you need it. So don't be afraid to ask.
I wish you all the success in reaching all your goals.
