I haven't posted much around here but I've been quietly getting inspiration from all of your blogs over the past nine weeks.
And two days ago, I did my final run of Week 9.
I've been off the cigarettes now for nine weeks too and feel so much better for it.
And four weeks ago, I decided it was time to start the diet too (thought quitting cigs and dieting together might be a bit rough in the early stages). I've lost 11lb since then.
Although there's still quite a way to go, I'm more confident, at the age of 52, than I've ever been that I can lose the weight and persevere with my exercise regime.
Thanks to all of you whose stories made me realise that all you need is determination and belief in yourself. And good luck to all those of you still in the middle of it. I'll still keep reading, especially when I sense my motivation flagging.
