Hi all

I havent been on line for a bit lots of things going on at min,how are you all geting on? i cant believe i will soon be going into month 5 were has the time gone?

I do still have craveing but at the min im haveing BIG craveings for lots of sweet food and its doing my head in Big Time i really have had enough.

I hav spoke to my partners sister in law she packed up smoking 3 months ago and she cant stop eating sweet things.

I was doing so well with weight watchers but i didnt go last week as i no i had put on so much with allways eating sweet stuff.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?

I no if i had one puff of that white stick i would be back to square one so i will stay well clear of them but it is sooooooooooooooo hard for me as the weight gain is geting me so down

would love any advice please

  • Hi Kay

    You've put on some weight? I thought you had managed to loose some and overall, were either the same now as in the beginning of your quit, or lighter?

    Depending on how much you've gained (if you've gained) that would seem to tie in with what's happened to the majority of us... gain!

    Well done though on nearing 4 months complete with being smoke free:cool:

    Add to this thread and let us know how your doing, yeah?

  • Hey Kay

    Good to hear from you love and glad you are still with us.

    Most of us are suffering with the weight gain...I've put on 20lb (cant say 11/2 stone). However I seem to ahve turned a corner with the cravings and that is making fighting the weight gian much easier. Stick with it love you will get there.

  • Hi Kay :D

    Good to hear from you again hun and going into month 5 soon is great

    There is nothing wrong with you at all wanting sweet things is normal your metabolism hasn't settled back down as yet but it will and then the weight will come off again

    Love

    Hi yes i have been loosing weight, i started weight watchers the same time as i packed up smoking and i have lost 24 pounds but the past 3 weeks i have seem to hit a blip but thats it today is a fresh start and i will get my head round this weight loss for summer.Thanks for your advice i forget how much i have achevied sometimes with no home support many thanks hun xxx

  • Same here for me Kay. I'm sick to death of everything regarding quitting...wish I'd never given up sometimes!!

    I gave up to begin with because of high cholesterol. So what have I done ever since quitting? Shoved loads of chocolate in me which is really healthy! Have also gone through mental hell with the champix. I've had fat ankles which any pregnant woman would be proud of which actually turned out to be an underactive thyroid, which is making losing weight nigh on impossible. (and making me a right miserable cow) The thought of being this weight when the better weather arrives just fills me with dread.

    My weight has stalled at a gain of 24lbs which is 2 sizes when you're on the smallish side but I haven't got one summer thing that would fit. If I did 2 lists of advantages of or disadvantages of quitting smoking I know which list would be longer for me.

    Anyway, I'm not dying so I guess that's the main thing. And I wouldn't consider picking up a ciggie either because I NEVER want to go through this again :mad:

  • Ahhh JJ, the weight gain is a massive massive disadvantage (no pun intended).

    I have put on about 1 and half stone but don't seem to be stalling yet? :)

    Sorry to hear about the thryroid - can the docs do anything to help with this?

    I know it's easy to say but try not to worry JJ - we can be like teletubbies in our bikinis together this summer :D

    No, I'm sorry for making a joke of it - it really isn't funny infact it's horrible as very few of my clothes fit. I have to laugh about it myself otherwise I'll cry - I hate each time I look in the mirror :mad:

    Well done though JJ you have done grand with the not smoking

    Well done you to Kay - quitting smoking & loosing weight is a massive acheivement and must take loads of will power.

    Take care

  • Your doing marvellously honey!!!

    Apparently the metabolism is meant to chill out and settle down after 6 months.... i jolly well hope so too.... have faith, keep exercising and try and minimise that gain.... trouble is the more i munch the heavier i feel and the lower the motivation is to stop shoving cake in my mouth......

    stands to reason... if i shove less cake in my mouth... i will weigh less.... the actuality of the matter is more tricky!

    Win one battle at a time..... to many restrictions and your in danger of falling on all counts in my opinion.

    Your doing fabulously!!!!!! Keep it up honey xxxxx
