Feeling Proud and feeling good!

Hi Guys,

Just a quick update so you know I'm still here! been working 72hrs this week so not much time.

Day 43, feeling pretty good, cut down for the last week to 1/2 Champix tablet a day so feeling ok with no nasty side effects.

Have now lost 9 1/2lbs since I quit! Happy bunny!

Where the heck did all this will power suddenly come from!

Saved £98.69 and not smoked 1,097 cigarettes!! Thats scary, how many cigs must I have smoked over the last 35 years! Good grief my poor lungs!:eek::eek:

Going out tomorrow for a bit of a drinking session, my 1st big temptation but I will stay strong!

Hope everyone is feeling as good as I am today!

Bev. xx:D:D

  • Blimey, Bev, you're steaming ahead aren't you? Not only on Day 44 now (nearly made your half-century :)) but you've lost the best part of a stone to boot! That's fantastic! :D

    Too right you deserve a drink and I am sure you have built up a sufficient arsenal to stay strong on your night out. I hope you have a lovely time as you certainly deserve it. :)

  • Wow such a wonderful post, all the positivity is showing through, and that's marvellous:):) huge congratulations from me.

    To loose weight also is awesome.:cool:

    So very well done, enjoy:)

  • Hi Bev

    A massive well done to you for keeping at it :) The night out sounds much deserved after working all those hours!

    I'm using a similar app though I only smoked an average of 12/day, my hubby did point out that I had smoked over 45,000 fags since we met in 2006, I am thinking that habit took up way too much time :eek:


  • Hi Befly

    Really enjoyed reading your post and many congratulations - you are zoooming ahead. So many benefits, huh?! So glad you're feeling proud and feeling good. I'm not surprised. :) :)

  • Fantastic post Befly and just shows it can be done.

    Enjoy your evening out, you deserve it. xx

  • Thanks everyone,

    I can happily say I have been out all day drinking and eating and sitting by the river and even done a bit of holiday shopping!

    Had a lovely day with great friends and wasn't even slightly tempted to smoke even with everyone smoking round me!

  • Way to go Bev... Please share your weight loss secrets, I am on Day 40 and the weight is starting to creep up.

    Keep on, keeping on

  • Kaz,

    No weight loss secrets i'm afraid! I joined slimming world when I quit as I always put on so much weight, I actually put on 1/2lb this week but that was coz I went out on the booze and had a burger and chips as well! Was nice though! I think you just have to eat lots of fruit & veg and avoid all the fatty things that we all love!

    Good luck to you,

  • Well done Bev, weight loss can be done I'm the same back on slimming world no cheats and it's coming off. Well done being out drinking etc as well :)
