Almost 17 weeks

Hi all, just wanted to post a quick update. Feeling pretty good still and quite positive. When things wind me up now I don't jump straight to thinking I want a cigarette (although I think my internet shopping habit is becoming a problem:eek:)

Just over two weeks trying to lose weight and I have lost 6 pounds - woohoo, so chuffed:D Only another 36 pounds to goal weight.

Have a lovely weekend everyone :)

Good for you Nicky :)

The internet shopping is essential in view of your weight loss. You'll have had to replemish/replace your entire wardrobe at least twice by the time you reach your target weight if my experience is anything to go by. It's a hard job but someone has to do it. :D

Seriously, many congratulations on both fronts. It isn't easy to quit and lose weight simulateously but you're showing that it can be done with great aplomb.


Great stuff Nicky. It's great when the cigarette is not the first thing we reach for in those situations, isn't it?

I too started my weight-loss journey yesterday. Don't have that much to lose, but I've done it before so no problems. If we quit smoking, we surely can handle weight loss as well :)


Hi Nicky,

I lost 13 1/2lb in 12 weeks and then put on 15lb on my 2 weeks holiday! Never mind back on it again now, lost 7lb in 2 weeks.

Do think the no smoking thing is getting easier now though, glad you are losing weight, you are doing really well. xx


Oh yes Bev, it's definitely easier now, and I never thought I would say that. I'm glad I pushed through the bad days when I really wanted to smoke. I'm not taking anything for granted though, just in case I get more craves later on. As I have never got this far I have no idea what to expect. Well done you for 17+ weeks now :):)

Well done on your weight loss too. I'm pretty determined on that as well as my quit, it's a year for sorting out my life and I WILL lose 4 stone! :D:D


You sound very positive and I am sure you will do it!

Wow!:eek: 4 stone, I will be happy with 2 for now!;)

Good luck buddy. xx
