2 years ago I stopped smoking and I would love to say that i gained the weight because of it, but that would be lying to you and me. I have yoyo dieted for so long that I have managed to mix up the weight scale so badly that it is now in therapy!

I have sabotaged my health for too many years, losing weight and then gaining it back and then some. Everytime I'd lose the weight, I was so sure I was above gaining it back that i'd go back to my old eating habits.

Why is it that my kids and husband had well balanced plates but not me? I figured it out...finally. I never thought I was worth it, so I just never took care of me.

You know what? I am so worth it. I'm worth the effort and the time and the investment.

So there you have it. A little craziness always helps too.

I'm from Québec Canada. I will be 45 in a few weeks and I love my age and where my life has led me. I have 2 kids ( daughter 20 and son 17). I'm also married to my best friend.

I hope we can be spark buds.

    Hi there! Congratulations on quiting smoking. I too quit smoking about 1.5 years ago and gained nearly 50 pounds. If you dieted before and YO, YO'd up and down they say it is easier to keep the weight off permanently as a non smoker because exercise is easier.
