My metabolism stopped dead when I quit smoking 9 years ago. I never had a weight problem before that. Now I have over 70 pounds to lose. I need some help and motivation to feel good again. Ironically I quit smoking for my health, and my immediate weight gain caused arthritis! Go figure. lol

After several starts, stops, restarts and more failures, I am determined to rid myself of 70 pounds! I'm hoping SparkPeople can help motivate me. I haven't allowed a camera near me since I put ...

Thanks for checking the blog. He keeps getting worse the older he gets-he is a lot like his mom. emoticon

Hi Marylou - Just reading your comments on the arthritis board and wanted to let you know that the same thing happened to me. I quit smoking 24 years ago and started gaining, gaining and gaining weight until now I am 40 lbs up! I never had a problem with my weight until then and five years after stopping smoking I got arthritis. Long story, short, I have never been able to loose any of the added pounds - if I start to exercise I end up hurting so much I have to give it up. However, since starting SP I understand it will be a long slow process and even though I am inured right now from walking too much, it will eventually work - haven't lost much weight but it is coming off oh so slowly. What you said is true that it centers around the amount of exercise along with a healthy diet as well! Good luck and the grandbaby pics are awesome! emoticon

Thanks Marylou. I hope he never loses the ability to make those faces as he grows up. He is just so funny.
