How lovely to see some lovely new faces around the place
I passed my nine-month mark with barely a glance, which is nice, but I also kinda miss the days when I noticed every little milestone. I wonder if the not noticing is part of the reason why I've had a few odd craves lately - perhaps complacency is setting in? Whatever, I will not be beaten, not now that I'm starting to feel like my first whole year is in sight
I'd just like to say to everyone in the early stages - keep posting! Just having a record to look back on is so valuable - if you can, like me, look back from the lofty heights of nine months and see a reminder of the torture you went through in those first days and weeks, it really helps. I'm thanking nine-months-ago me for the little list that lives in my purse, reminding me of the reasons I wanted to quit. And the list I wrote of all the benefits I started to notice. And all the posts here that I wrote, that remind me just how determined I was - and help me to realise that I will not let that nine-months-ago me down by slipping up now! NOPE!
There. That's me giving myself a talking to, in the guise of offering advice to others Stay strong, quitters! xxx
