Hey guys, on day 11 and apart from the first 3/4 days it's been so much easier than I anticipated. I get very rare cravings and if I do they're normally just little hints I can reason with or just brush away
The only bad things I would that that affected me greatly was the constipation at the beginning which seems to be sorting itself out now and same with the insomnia.
Another issue is also the weight gain It's already something I struggle with both mentally and physically, everything I eat just seems to go straight to me. It's been like this since I was 5 (Im 18 now), I used to go up a stone with my age until I lost of weight which is now back on again I've been for things like under active thyroid tests but I haven't got it. I was about 16 and a half stone before I started and now I'm 17 stone 4, the most annoying thing is I haven't even eaten that much. I guess the only thing in my favour is that I do look OKish for my size but its starting to get me down. Some of the weight gain could also be a bit of muscle because I've started walking more, doing a bit more running and I did a weight session with my sisters boyfriend last Saturday. I got down to 13 stone last October but piled it back on due to many problems. It was hard enough back then but now it just seems even harder!
But you know if I can deal with being overweight since I was 5, I can deal with it for a little longer while I sort it out - tbh I'm saying it will be harder than quitting smoking for me!
