Going into my 7 months

OMG im so shocked that im now going into 7 months :) and i feel great.

My advice to anyone who is starting out on DAY1 is hang in there it does get easier in time and it is well worth it in the end.

The thing now i have to battle with is the 2 stone weight gain :(

Well done - 7 months is just great.

I was constantly shocking myself when I realised that I hadn't smoked for week, month 6 months etc. I never thought I'd get there. You enjoy it - you deserve it. And it really does get better.

I'm with you on the weight thing - am a right chunkster at the mo!! (But better than stinking like and old ash try, coughing and wheezing, looking grey aand washed out etc etc etc)

Well done Kay , 6 months behind you is fantastic . Much better to be off the fags and 2 stone heavier than still smoking :)

Weather is getting warmer now .although it doesnt seem like it at the moment :p........I found walking kept my weight down ,and purging my lungs with clean air makes me feel good .... might be worth a try as I am sure you will notice the difference and at least its nice and flat terrain round Boston ..............not like trekking through the himalayas :D

Whatever you decide though 6 months is great

Trev 20 a day for 30 years :eek:

Quit 28th April 09

Kay, someone hit the nail on the head for me recently regards the weight gain.. as i've also put on 2-3 inches around my waist.. well, they said...

"a few stone or so won't kill you, but what you were smoking and the quantity you smoked sure would have!'

Made me think for a bit, but yeah they are right.. of course they are right, and unless i can hand on heart say i've been out running or exercising yet (which i haven't :o ) then i shouldn't really be over worried just yet.

but heck.. well done you for 6 months done and entering the 7th... definitely in 'the zone' now eh!!

Congrats Kay

Feeling porky too as are several others but I know that I can sort it as I've managed to quit smoking.

You're doing great and sorting out your eating can be done too and it doesn't have to be traumatic as it's your choice to change and as long as you want the change you are doing as you please.

well done Kay, fantastic quit! I too am worried about the weight gain, although I'm way behind you in my quit (8 weeks) So started WeightWatchers yesterday and hit the gym - and looking on the bright side, counting 'points' and writing my food diary stops me obsessing about the fags:D

MASSSSIVE CONGRATS for a really good quit Kay:)

Mah I have to ask whos Porky????????????????????????

Hi Kay dont worry about the weight gain it will drop of when you get your body back to some form of normality, and dont listen when people say that your metabolism slows right down after quit and doesnt go back again because it does Im sure, I put 10LB on in two weeks and then had to lose it and I did in 4 weeks so it shows you can if you have too.

I agree exercise is good so I do 30 mins walking every day and that helps and I now drink loads and eat healthy (most of the time) so just enjoy the quit and worry later about the weight xx

HI kay JUST WANTED TO SAY A MASSIVE WELL DONE HONEY.

I am the same as you having gained 2 stone and feeling really chunky, but the willpower we used to quit will be the same when we are ready to loose the weight. I am giving it a few more weeks then I shall start to diet.

Great news Kay

Stay strong

Dee xxxx:)
