I know what you're going through. I have an 18 year old also who just started college and a 17 year old who is graduating for high school this year. I have tried different diets, only to find myself going back to the same bad habits over and over again. I have found my biggest downfall to be stress and going for my comfort foods when I feel I "need" them. This is not a new year's resolution for me either, but a commitment to myself to lose the weight and be healthy again. We can do this!!
