Hi everyone who has been around as long as me or near enough.
I haven't posted for weeks and suppose I've not been loitering either.
Everything is fine and I'm in training to do a 10km charity run in the autumn. The goal of a half marathon is still too far away, but it will come in time.
I do not on a day to day basis think of the fags but every now and then I think one would be nice - but don't act on it as I know I cannot do it.
I'm getting better with the eating too. My snacking is back under control and I have now packed away the fat clothes again
I'm still amazed and perplexed that I've done this - I never intended too and my poor husband is very proud but also a little bit pi$$ed that I managed to do it before him when I'd categorically said I was never quiting.
I have not really noticed anything else thats different about me. And I think thats a good thing. I had a phase where I thought it wasn't "me" to be a non-smoker but those around me say I haven't changed - odd, but if you too are struggling with this concept - ask those you can trust, smokers and non smokers and see what they say.
I hit my six month mark yesterday - but spent yesterday away at another
bl00dy football match that we lost and cranked up the pressure of relagation. I chew more gum than Sir Alex!
Hope everyone is well - don't give up and remember you do not define yourself by your choice of drugs!!
