SMILEYS :-

8-) :D :( :P :) :O :X

If you point your cursor over any of the smileys I have put on you will see what keys I have used to make the image. make sure you leave a couple of spaces after and before words otherwise they don't always work. . Good Luck! you can always delete if it doesn't work.

After that Pete is probably the expert. :D

Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Evening One and All :D

Have a lovely day out JillyGirl, I hope you are up to something nice and exciting :D

For those of you who may be using an ipad or some form of tablet and don't have a cursor - the smileys can be done like this;

(Just remember that you need to put a space after it if you want to continue writing in your post ;-) )

:) : ) Smiley or happy face

:D : d (or : D) Laughing, big grin

:( : ( Frown, sad

:'( : ' ( Crying

:o : o Surprise, shock

;) ; ) Wink

:p : p Tongue sticking out, cheeky/playful, blowing a raspberry

:| : |Straight face, no expression, indecision

:x : x Angry

8-) 8 - ) For when it's nice and sunny

I am away to pop the kettle on, I'll be right back with a drink of your choice ;-)

Hello all,

I do hope that you are enjoying a craving free and stress free day :) :)

I am pretty pleased with myself. Over the past 4 weeks i have lost 3kgs :) :) I am just so greatful not to be putting on any more weight with quitting. This pedometer has become my new best friend :D :D as i wont accept under 10,000 steps daily.

Oh well done glolin on your weight loss. I have been trying to lose weight , been dieting for last 2wks, have to do it as my clothes all seem to have Shrunk! lol x also trying to exercise more. Haven't weighed yet , thought I'd weigh when I see my Dr on the 25th . Hope I will have lost something by then XX You have done so well , 3kgs is brilliant !

Lovely smiley opener jilly, thank you :)

I've copied out the smilies now, many thanks Emjay and Jilly, and monky 8-) :) .

Glolin, You really are a star! Doing amazing! I wish I could get my act together as well as you, but hey, I don't smoke cigarettes anymore, thats a big hurray!!

hoping when home stuff has settled a bit will be able to control everything else. I love the 10000 steps a day goal. That's such a good tip, easy to remember. Might not manage it every day, but can at least go for 'most days' :)

Good luck with the sober October lilymay, I'm so bad at drinking now it only takes one blitz of what I would once have considered a very modest amount to put me off for another few weeks/months :o !

Chris its so good to hear about the improvement. I think we've all got our scares, and For mine I know stopping smoking is the very best thing to do. We're doing good :)

Cornishlady, my wardrobe's the same :o ! Sounds like you've got a good plan underway there. Show that doctor on the 25th ! My Hubby's chocolate cupboard needs a padlock on it :o Or I've got to get some of your and glolin's self control under my belt :o

Have a lovely smoke free evening all, or day, for you glolin :)

No apology needed!

I'm just boggled at how things have changed for me in the last 3 months.

Yes - I still get tempted occasionally.

No - I'm not going to give in to those temptations.

Three months ago, I'd just had a diagnosis of a heart condition (Atrial Fibrillation) and I was scared and worried.

Now, my heart condition is under control (though not "cured") and I know I can cope without my roll-ups.

I probably rely on my e-cig more than I ought to - though I'm running on zero/6mg juice.

And I feel okay! :) :)

my goodness Glolin, only 2 months in and you are losing weight?? I must say I'm slightly envious :) however that is fabulous and well done you! I think I may have to up the ante just a little and do some more exercise :) Despite my little 26 mile jaunt I'm terribly lazy however will be partaking in 'Sober October' next month so that and maybe actually getting off the sofa to start the C25K will help!

And three months for Chris, the time just flies and it's great to hear that things are on the up for you and your health has improved. It really is just the spur we all need to keep us from temptation :)

Have a fabulous day everyone x

Well done Glolin, that's great losing 3kg, not sure I've lost any weight but I am wearing my pedometer every day :)

Lilymay good luck with Sober October...anyway looking at you in that lovely wedding dress of yours, you don't look as though you need to lose weight :)

Cornishlady & Betts, do you think we all have the same type of washing machine???? all my clothes have shrunk too :O

Beardy Chris, I am sooo glad that you can feel the benefits on your ticker b y having given up the roll-ups :)

You might notice I'm trying out new smilies ;)

I'm into sober-rest-of-September after a grand reunion party last Saturday night. Danced all night, and think it was Gangam style that did it for my knees 8-)

Probably where I lost my mind too :o :D

Hey Everyone :-)

I see you are all chatting bubbles again :D :D I had a busy afternoon and didn't make it back to my desk to pop on here properly earlier - I have been on Aunty duties this evening - it was 9.30pm before I managed to sit down.

On a positive, I did receive an e-mail from HealthUnlocked to say that they had found a certain type of bug :o and that was either causing the problem with our badges or with the ipad... I'll find out properly tomorrow which one it was.

I hope you are all having a nice evening, if Linda is looking in then I hope you have had a nice sleep and are all set up for a nice easy day at work ;-)

Reply

Hey Emjay

When you saying talking bubbles .... do you really mean rubbish???? :P

Hope you had fun with your Aunty duties :)

When you speak to those HU people could you please ask them when they are changing this news feed..... we are all really really unhappy with it.... :( we are all missing posts and responses :(

Hope your day is not soooo busy tomorrow, and it calms down in time for the weekend :)

Had a great sleep :) :) Up and been for a walk and about to hit the shower. This weight loss for me is a bonus. My main thing is to do some regular exercise as over the past couple of years I really had become a couch potatoe and had put on a bit of beef which was a huge contributing factor to my high blood pressure.

Since quitting smoking, i had noticed a little more weight creeping on ( or those bugs were stitching up my clothes :P :D )

I have found that the confidence that i gained from managing to get through the first few weeks of quitting and staying smoke free I have maximised this new found confidence to change my lifestyle :) :)

This has been huge for me, as confidence is something that i dont generally have.

I am so grateful for all the encouragement and support that i have got from all you wonderful people XX :)

Reply

WOW Glolin, you are a walking, talking, motivated, oozing confidence, all round nice, inspirational little adopted Aussie :)

I really need to step up on my pedometer otherwise I will have to buy a complete new wardrobe (my current one won't take the weight.... :O )

Give yourself a huge pat on the back lovely lady coz you give us encouragement and support by the bucket loads, and I for one am truly grateful to you :)
