Still going strong- day 17 :D

Hey Folks,

Still a non-smoker at day 17, who would have thought it. I am a bit upset becasue I weighed myself yesterday and have put on a stone in those 17 days :(

So have brought healthier things to snack on today and going on the excersise bike and doing a fitness DVD tonight.

No bad cravings to speak of, thank goodness, they seem to have gone. Just the stone to shift now.

Hope everyone else is still going well.

  • Hey Jill!

    Well done and don't worry about the weight just yet. In the first 3 months of my quit I was going to the gym everyday but I still managed to put on a stone! :eek:

    But now that I don't feel as 'anxious' about not smoking and I also feel like I don't need to congratulate myself for 'getting through the day' without one so I've stopped eating so much and it hasn't been difficult to do. I think if I would have tried dieting in the first couple of months of being quit things would have been quite shaky!

  • Well done Jill.

    I'm too on day 17 but struggling badly. Had serious cravings last night, still not sleeping, felt like i'd been hit in the face with a shovel this morning, bad cravings again this morning along with irritability :(

  • Thanks Sofia.

    Maybe I am being too hard on myself but I got married in November there and lost like 2 stone and now I feel like I have let myself down for putting half on again.

    I suppose i could be an potimist and say I am still a stone lighter than I was before I got married.

    Thanks for the advice. I got the Singstar Dance for the PS Move and it is difficult on the muscles so maybe I will enjoy working out seeing as it is fun.

    Pete- Keep going! You are doing so so so well. Noone told us it would be easy but did you ever think you would be telling people you are on day 17! I know I didn't! One day at a time, you have made it this far, don't give up. We are all in ths together.

    Well done Jill - great stuff :)

    Is potimist the new word for optimist :D sorry my spelling, typos and grammar is bad and seeing that made me laugh out loud as that's something I'd usually do:D

    Don't worry to much about the weight it will start to right itself, I used to get wrapped up in the whole weight thing, now I just concentrate on caring for my quit

    No Tinks, think Jill was right with her spelling.....

    urbandictionary.com/define....

    Hence the 'stone' lighter i suppose :D

  • :D well that shows how dumb I am! Every day's a school day, well in my case anyway :D I have actually died my hair back blonde. I'm naturally a brunette but blonde suits my personality so much better :D

    Sorry Jill :o at least I can laugh at myself hey.

  • Ha thanks pete!

    I loled there hahahahahaha, it was optimist but hey there was you looking on the bright side of my typos, see that wasn't lost on me ;-)
