Giving Up Smoking and Loosing Weight

I gave up drinking alcohol for lent to give myself a fighting chance of not giving in to a ciggie when I had had few glasses of vino and two weeks ago I started weight watchers in an attempt to not pile loads of weight on ( i do need to loose about a stone).

I have lost 2lb this week :eek: (just been weighed!) to make a total of 4lb. As you all know I have my aero hot chocolate every day and popcorn before bed as treats but I dont replace smoking with eating. ive actually been out for 3 lovely meals this week too!

this might seem strict to some people but its more about planning, its helping me to stay in control and keep that nic demon at bay. Hes in a headlock today and Ive got a tight hold of him.

Ive also just been out and treated myself to a lovely new top and pair of jeans. :D:D:

so although I have never believed this before you can stop smoking and that doesnt mean you have to pile on the pounds. :)

  • Hi Mogg

    Iv'e been packed up smoking for 1 week today and well chuffed with myself,i'm in the same position i have booked a holiday with my daughter to majorca on june 29th and cant wait.Im so worried about puting on weight but yesterday i had lost 2lbs so im well chuffed as i dont want to be a beach whale.

    I write everythin i eat in my weight watchers book and when i want something i have been having it and staying to my points and it seemed to be working this week.

    I was very worried about puting on weight but my doctor said yesterday that i wont put weight on if i dont replace the fags with nice yummy food.

    So here we go for week 2 and cant wait

    Good look on packing up drinking and smoking
