Welcome to FitDay, MissLisaMonet!
I'm a newby to the site myself and only started counting calories last week, so I haven't got much experience to draw on, but I already feel that taking control over what you eat is helping a lot to stay focused. I'm a quitter myself and I've been trying to lose these 15 pounds on and off again over the last 5 years, but never managed to lose more than 6 pounds or so. I'm all for support, so I'll try to pop in on this site as often as I can.
So best of luck to you and to everyone else! You can do it!!
