Day 9

Day 9. Been away for four days and I am so happy to see the same people I started my journey with are still going strong on my return. I am still using my quit smoking mist spray, some days more than others, however each day feels better and I feel more relaxed and not so uptight as I was in week 1. :cool:

I have put on 2kgs which is not cool. :(:( will need to do something about that this week as two years ago I stopped smoking for four weeks and started again as I got so depressed with the amount of weight I had gained. Cannot, will not do that again :o

    You have my empathy with the side effect of weight gain. But you can always deal with this at a later date, when your quit is more comfortable.:o

    A good analogy , my old washer broke, was absolutely mint condition on the out side, no marks, scuffs, dent, rust, when the repair started to have a look, the internals of machine, well, lime scale, rust, water marks infact terrible,

    Had to have a new one, my point is its better to be healthy on the inside its our engine, to keep us going. It's no good looking great on the out side, if inside we're b.gg.red is it?

    Keep going your doing great:)

  • Hi, I have found if I make soups I can have a little and often, that way, I'm not sooooo tempted to eat chocolate , also have upped my intake of whitefish, as quite low in cal,s and carbs,

    I know it's just soooo hard but the weight can come back off.

    God luck :)

  • Yeah i too can relate to the weight gain BUT there are a couple of people on here who've lost weight while quitting. They did the whole healthy lifestyle thing all in one go so it is possible.

  • Hi Chabozim my same day quitter lol - we are both on the nine day marker. Let's keep it together and keep moving forward.

    I haven't had any trouble putting on weight thankfully but I do try to keep the snacks to proteins rather than carbs and sugar ;)

    Glad to see you posting again.

  • I like Tracey's washing machine analogy. Says it all really. :)

    But yes, it is possible to do both at the same time (I quit and started dieting simultaneously and there are at least two other regular posters on the forum who did the same). Having said that, I'm by no means attempting to set myself up as an example or anything special. It works for me but the thing with quitting is that everyone has a different strategy, what works for one doesn't work for someone else, and all strategies are of equal value.

    Losing a few pounds is easy compared to quitting and that's where your focus needs to be at the moment. Who cares if you develop a few curves where no curves were previously? Curves are nice! :D

    A huge well done on getting to Day 9. You're heading towards the end of your second week and that's mighty. :)
