any advice on just getting started

Hi all i am new to this page. I am getting very frustrated with my weight. I don't eat much,

I try to watch my carb intake,which is very hard for me cause i love my pasta. I had cancer 4 years ago and after my surgery i feel into a depression and i'm fighting to climb out of it. I gained a lot of weight after that. Yes i was big before but i was not nearly this big. Any suggestions? oh and im also quitting smoking so its a double whammy for me..lol
