I agree start out slow.
With small changes that way it becomes a life style not just a diet. It's a proven fact to take the weight off slowly at 1 or 2 pounds a week, your keeping it off is better. Good luck on your weight loss journey. emoticon

Welcome. Congrats on quitting smoking. I did that a while back and it's hard not to reach for food when you're craving a smoke. The hand-to-mouth habit is hard to break but being aware of it helps. I still sometimes put my first two fingers to my lips as though I was holding a cigarette and inhale deeply just to get myself to relax.

A word to the wise: don't go for the full 50 lbs. all at once. Do 10 lbs. to start and then another 10. It's a small thing, but can save you a lot of frustration.

Achieve success in any area of life by identifying the optimum strategies and repeating them until they become habit - Charles Givens

emoticon emoticon Kudos on quitting smoking.

To help me stop eating (and drinking) so much I had to find something else to keep my hands busy. I started crocheting, drawing, and embroidering. It has helped tremendously with keeping my mind off of my bad habits.

Keep us posted on your progress, we are all here to help you if we can.
