Its been about 68 days now so time for a recap.
No mad cravings for weeks now. I still miss them everyday but its on a very managable level now. I go for hours without thinking about them at all now, i am delighted and still a bit surprised by that.
Weight gain, i've had my share. I've gone from 14 stone 3lb to 15 stone 9lb so far, thats an 18LB increase for those of you outside the UK Im 6ft 2" and fairly broad so i am fine with that but will keep an eye on it. I have no intention of cutting back on snacking at this point but i am trying to be more healthy about it.
I exercise regularly now, lifting weights and running. My knees hurt from the running so i have to rest them for a while, i think i tried too much too soon there and im paying for it now its full steam ahead with the weightlifting though, im getting stronger and fitter everyweek, that is something i know i couldnt have achieved while smoking, i just wouldnt have had the energy or the lungs for it
With regards to smoking, i feel the sprint is over and the marathon has begun, i aim to win that race too
