10 Weeks Free for Me

t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn...WEEKS!

Hi Guys and Gals

Im not on here much now as i just tend to sit and read in the back ground, not really posting as i used to but i wanted to share that as of today i have hit my 10th week free, also on Tuesday im joining the whole family at our local sports centre so that we can all go swimming or the gym when we want and 2011 is the year im gonna lose 35lbs and get back to a size 14. I have been lucky in that this extra weight is not due to stopping but from when i had my twins and i lazily could not be arsed to shift it. So this is my year to get into shape :)

To all the new year quitters, you can do this, stay strong and positive. Its not easy no one said it would be but read, read and read some more. Keep posting and most off all dont give up cos if i can do it then anyone can ;).

Have a great day

  • Thank You Mod 4 for taking the time out to reply. I do hope that you have had a great christmas and new year.

    Levs,

    I am at the gym 10am Tuesday morning and the twins will be with me too as they also need the induction so that they can use the gym facilities if they want to but they are mainly going for the swimming then after an hour workout it will be swimming time for the little ones. That will be the best £605 spent this year as it works out cheaper to pay for the family membership for the year in one hit rather than monthly and my OH will be going up too on his days off as he def needs to lose a few pounds since his quit. My aim is to lose 1/2 to a 1lb a week so by christmas 2011 i will be much smaller than i am now and def not a size 16/18.

    Good luck hun, cos we can do this. :)

    Good Morning All

    I wanted to say a ((((BIG)))) Thank you to everyone for their kind replies. I must admit it does feel great to have got this far as i have never got this far with my last 2 quits which they both ended at about 3-4 weeks in cos i dont think i was ready in my mind, i did not have the right attitude to stopping and i think i felt i was missing out on something..............so yes i know i went back on them, both the previous quits were 2-3 years apart, my last attempt was Jan 2006, this time however i was ready and i know its for keeps. I feel so different in so many ways and this site has been my best buddy when i have needed extra help and support and TBH at the beginning when i felt so tierd, weak and generally under the weather and could have caved you supported me and not once did i feel like i was just doing this because i had too, NO not this time im doing it because "I" Want too.

    I knew my mistakes and flaws from the 2 times before and became armed with things like my knitting to keep me busy so that i did not feel like i wanted to have one, by changing my routine like only smoking outside along with anyone else i know they are not allowed to smoke indoors either, this change has helped as my house was clean and i had to go out to have my puff which in turn meant i cut down but also helped me now with the thoughts or even smells that may have lingered had i still puffed indoors and because i was the only one who smoked it was not fair on the others who did not then have to put up with passive smoking and 2nd hand smoke.

    I never substituted sweets or such with when i had a crave instead picked up my knitting or now books and its even more fun now cos my OH got me a Kindle for Christmas so i read that now instead. I also started taking high dose vitamins esp vit c and calcium all good to help our bodies recover.

    Anyhow, just wanted to say thankyou again and good luck with your quits too :)

  • well done on getting this far hope me and you can carry on

  • Well done Jo!! That's fantastic. You're doing great hun.
