performance: gaining 0.3 lb a week

I am a 53 year old mother of 5 grown children. I have been married 31 years. I have struggled with my weight nearly all my life especially after having children. I managed to keep my weight in the 150's, which I was comfortable with, until 2008. Since then I have lost 2 brothers and a sister (who was my best friend) and quit smoking. I turned to food for comfort. I also went through menopause, so most of the weight settled around my middle.
I have recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure. I need to drop at least 20 pounds and exercise regularly.
I would love to have some buddies like myself to support and be supported by. We all need a little help now and then. We are on a lifetime journey, one day at a time. Some days we stumble. What matters is that we forgive ourselves and get up again. Try to enjoy life every day.

The 'IT' Food for You?
That would be frosted sugar cookies (homemade). Cannot resist them. Seriously thinking about not making them this year. Haven't baked anything yet this year for the holiday much to the consternation of my five grown children. They know why I'm doing it, for my health, so they are sitting on their tongues but they must be very sore by now. I have always baked and eaten so many treats at Christmas. Very big change for me but don't feel secure enough to bake and not eat them. Looking forward to January actually. Enough temptation is enough.

I tried the Green Coffee Bean Extract recommended by Dr. Oz for a month. It didn't make a bit of difference, unfortunately.
