Welcome Jennagain and congrats on making the commitment to a healthier you! There's so much knowledge and support here, feel free to ask questions - someone usually knows the answer, has been in the same position, etc.
Recognizing that you have to change your habits is a good start - I know I can never go back to all the bad habits I had prior to IP. But I'm gaining the tools and knowledge to be able to make good decisions going forward and not ever go back to where I was.
