ripemango, thanks so much for your post. It was very encouraging to read about someone else feeling the same way I do. I hope we can continue to help each other! I'm sure I will re-read it a few more times.
I do think you have the key there in mentioning portion control.
lindyk11, Thanks for your support!
wildbeanerz, You are right now that I know what the problem(s) are, I have to learn how to control them. I should be able to control them
