My thread 'til the 20th

I'm just bypassing the weeks and jumping straight in here. I'm on day 6 of week 3 so there's no point in starting yet a new thread in there when I can keep a bit of a track thread here.

Well done to everyone who quit at the same time as me (and everybody else too). On the 20th of July I'll be oging to Month 2 - now that will be a long term thread!

I'm surprised I'm still hanging in there. This time is so different.

This time it really feels permanent. It's like you know, deep inside, that there is no way you will go back. That's why, I think, that it's not as hard as previous quits.

Don't get me wrong, the first week, even two weeks in retrospect, were vile and hideous.

But now I'm much happier, more energetic, less snappy and toddler like and more enthusiastic. Amazing. So worth it, regardless of how hard it is! If I could just go back to eating like I used to (again, the first couple of weeks are hard then it becomes habit) I'll be very proud indeed!

  • 1st Day of Week 4

    It's the first day of week four today and whilst I feel I am missing something, I don't feel the need to smoke.

    My little baby is away today with relatives so in an unprecedented move I have scoured the whole rear of our house form top to bottom. It is sparkling! It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.

    It's not just to take my mind off ciggies though. The weight is creeping up so I have joined My fitness pal and am doing all kinds of activities to burn calories (so I can eat more yet keep a steady weight).

  • Hi justsaynothanks

    Well done - into week 4. Not long now before your room upgrade to Month 2. You are so positive and determined, so there's no doubt that you'll make it there (and further of course!). :D

    Glad you are keeping busy and starting some exercise. I have to do that too - haven't had the energy or inclination until now! :o Keep thinking about it, and after all, it's the thought that counts! ;)

    Well done, stay strong. :D

    Hi I know that feeling that there is something missing, I got that feeling too. It does get less as time goes on. Good that you are keeping active, wish I could say the same well done!
