How are you all? The time in between each visit seems to be stretching out longer than I thought it would I must remember to set myself a reminder so that I get on here more often!
Well I've recently started Slimming World. Unfortunately I piled on the pounds when I quit smoking, as I wasn't strict with what I snacked on. I decided that I would allow myself to eat the things I wanted, to compensate for "giving up" something else.
And I have to say that method worked very well for me I feel that allowing my diet to take this change over the last few months (basically eating what I want, when I want) was a huge factor in staying away from the dirty cigs, at least in the beginning.
So I am ready and perfectly happy to be paying for it now. I was never really concerned with my diet, but I probably should have been. Fruit and veg weren't a major factor, whereas snacks definately were! It was only going to be so long before I needed to make the change anyway!! :rolleyes:
It's a big change to how I would usually eat (anything at any time!), but my first week is going well so far. I've chosen to join a local group, as communicating with other people seemed to be an advnatage when I stopped smoking. I'm hoping the same will work here
I'm just glad that I can still have snacks and the odd takeaway, because I couldn't manage without them!!
Speak soon fellow non-smokers! x
