Actually, my lightbulb moment was about 3 weeks after I quit smoking. I have been smoke free for 36 days now and I came to a couple of realizations along with that.

1) If I have worked this hard to quit smoking, I need to work hard at quitting being overweight. I want to be healthy and quit smoking, I better go the whole way!

2) I have 3 young children whom I refuse to teach my bad habits to. Smoking, eating the wrong foods and not exercising will show my children that's okay, and it's NOT okay for them, so it's NOT okay for me!

3) I have to stop whining about the foods I can't have and enjoy the ones I can have. I need to eat to live, not live to eat!

I'm 2 weeks into my last weight loss journey and I get it, finally!
