not a member but also 7 weeks for me but gosh i cant stop eating , keep going my man well done Phil


i know what you mean about the increased appetite, i have put weight on due to picking mostly sweet things. I have told myself its a treat to me for not smoking and im going to enjoy it for 4 weeks and not feel guilty or down about it . Alas the 4 weeks are now up so im joining a slimmimng club tonight . I will get healthy lol .


Well done you (not on the virus of course, but hey! If it helped.... Lol)

Keep up the good work, and soon you will be celebrating being 47 and a year smoke free :0) x


Well done joejo, its hard at times but we will all get there in the end


well its a big night for me tonight . I have enjoyed picking at sweeties and not so healthy food for the last 4 weeks as a treat for not smoking and also to not stress to much for putting weight on. But i now feel its time to get a grip on things so i am joining a slimming club tonight .

I get healthy LOL .
