Thank you to everyone who responded to my post. I was caught in a 'feeling sorry for myself' moment, and this website really helped wake me up. The truth is, I shouldn't be feeling sorry for myself at all, I should be feeling grateful. Another truth is, I quit smoking, something that I never thought I would be able to do. If I did that, why on Earth should I think that I couldn't lose a few extra pounds? If I've learned one thing since quitting smoking, it's this...I don't need to let my emotions or negative self-talk control me anymore.
Feeling better than ever, and back in the drivers seat....
