Bloating update

Just a little update to inform you all that the bloating has left the building. I had every test under the sun and yes it would appear to be related to quitting smoking. If anyone else is suffering I took ginger supplements, double probiotic(still taking it) and apple cider tablets and they have worked. Hurrah I am not fat after all lol

On another note my gp sent me as an urgent case to a dermatologist with suspected skin cancer last Friday thankfully all was ok. However through that stress on top of everything else I did not smoke so am very pleased with myself. 16 weeks on Sunday and all appears to be turning in the right direction 🤗

16 weeks this Sunday 👏👏👏👏🎉🎉🎉

What a scare you had Trollness...... But thank goodness the water retention stopped... I hated that part 😡

Wish I could lose just 5 lbs before I go to Mexico in a couple weeks... I've put on 10 lbs grrrr

Hope you're having a good day☀️😷😷🚭🚭🚭xx

Now that I'm getting some energy back after 5 months of exhaustion, I'm back to light weight training and drinking lots of water... I find drinking lots of water really helps and I'm trying to not eat junk food🍩🎂🍰🍧🍿😄😄😄sugar was my downfall !!!

Well done!! I have an awful sweet tooth so I am afraid I do eat more cake right now lol Well in my defence I don't drink alcohol lol that is my excuse and am sticking to it. I am so thankful it was water as if it were two stone in weight I would have a major problem as exercise is not my thing and then thee is my sweet tooth 🙈

I'm stuck in the junkfood/sugar rut myself right now, it's just as addictive as nicotine for me, before I said "no" to sugar & "yes" to cigs...no I say "no" to cigs..and sugar.."come on in!!!"

hopefully I can fruit to work instead of donuts!

I am living proof that it does pass and please believe me when I say I looked at least four months pregnant last week  honestly it was horrendous. Keep the faith and be under no illusion that it is in fact a side effect 💖
