Hi Kay,

Well done on your quit :D

I can't really help on the weight issue as I am only 3 weeks into my quit. I have been wanting to lose weight over the last 18 months or so but have really struggled. I find it's a bit like stopping smoking - it just clicks one day & off you go ;) Apart from making all the healthy food choices, I am sure you know what to do, hopefully some spring weather will spur you (and me) into action :)

Hi Kay... It is so great to hear from you and to know you have remained so strong :D

I'm also having some issues with weight and have been only in the past 6 to 8 weeks but I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with the quit.

I have started a diet but I would recommend Weight Watchers as it is fairly easy to follow and allows all food, as well as giving you an incentive (the weight in once a week). The only reason why I'm not doing it is that I can't make the dates, but overall, we women, know all about food, ingredients, calories and what is healthy or not, so I'm doing it alone with a target weight that is feasible and comfortable.

Once again, I'm really glad you're back ;)


Hi Kay

So pleased to hear you are ok and still quit with everything thts gone on in your life lately, well done lady I am proud of you.

Yes Kay I am struggling with weight and appetite, I have never been so hungry in my life, I knew nicotine was an appetite depressant but never realised how many times I would have a fag and coffee and now want cake, biscuit etc with coffee !!!!!!!!!!

I am back to slimming world as I gained 18lbs during the 4 months, have lost a few pounds but really hard work, think metabolism must have changed. Have read and heard that it takes 6 months for all the changes to take place so perhaps things will settle down for us then, we can but hope.

At the moment I am struggling with really heavy cold and feeling cr.. and want to eat, but am sticking to fruit and yogurt instead of the carbs that I crave.

Stay strong let me know how you get on sweetheart.

Love Dee

ps. my cancer check at hospital last week was clear so I do have something to feel a whole lot better about even if I am fat.:)


Good to hear your still going strong Kay. As for the weight, I think (hope) that after conquering the fags we can tackle anything - just a matter of deciding to.


Kay just wanted to say Im so very very pleased to see your still quit hunny. Im so very proud of you love and I bet you daughter is too. You are one very strong lady sending you lots of PMa.xxxxxx


Kay I started walking 4 days ago. been doing 3 times around the track at the city park which is 2 1/2 mile sorry don't know the conversion to your measurements. I'm listening to my ipod and have my favorite music. Took a lot to get me going but I'm doing and am starting to look forward to walks. Just a suggestion, works for me. right now its great weather here too. Good luck!:D
