Thank heavens it's working

I'm about 9 months through my quit and I thought it about time so lose some weight. For the sake of clarity I've always been lardy, I just became a little 'lardier' when I quit. I'm 34 and thought it about time to get myself sorted for once and for all, another driver for this is years of suffering from health anxiety.

Well beyond the waffle, 10 days in and I'm nearly 8lbs lighter. I'm eating like a horse and feeling great!

It can be done :)

  • Hi Stav, well done with your diet.

    I can understand about health Anxiety I have had that for as long as I can remember, the mind is a funny thing.

    Anyway Stav keep doing what you are doing and all will be great.

    Love Joan x

  • End of week three today and no loss in the last 7 days, no gain either! Good going as it has been a week of catching up with friends and therefore changing what I'd eat when out. I've stayed the same through several pints of lager, a bottle of wind, Nandos, Chinese and Curry!!! God what a terrible list :)

    Starting to feel so much better though, my confidence is up to the point where I've been swimming a few times. This is something I wouldn't do as I felt like a whale when in swimming shorts.

    I think I'm starting to become ever so slightly addicted to exercise also which isn't a bad thing. I've never been in to a particular sports such as rugby and football. I used to love basketball but that ended with my school days. I enjoy running but so far haven't been able to go due to a back injury, I've set myself a new target (another 7lbs) at which point I think I'll be Ok going out for a job.

    It's the bottle of wind that gets me every time! :p

    Seriously though, I've been pleasantly surprised that my weight has remained fairly stable (could still do with losing half a stone though!). We've got a collie dog who needs lots of regular exercise and I'm finding that the walks are now something I'm looking forward to rather than as a bit of an ordeal. My breathing is so, so much better, we're walking further and for longer and I'm feeling good!

    I don't really have a sweet tooth so I've got been tempted that way. However, I do seem to be getting through an awful lot of cheese... ;)
