I feel the same way.. the last time I went down this road and lost weight I was eight years younger and exercise came a little easier.. now that I am 40 my knees hurt, my ankle tends to get weak, etc... hoping to overcome these obstacles soon by slowly adding exercise and getting those knees checked out! LOL.. some motrin may not hurt either

Oh goodness. I am also an emotional eater. Big time. Thankfully, I haven't come up against that in my first 8 days of my diet. I have thought about it though. I have a couple things in my back pocket for me to do when I feel like that. I am glad I have found this site. I feel like I have a lot of support here.
