Default I quit smoking!

One of my big goals for this year (aside from getting to my goal weight) was to stop smoking. I kept thinking oh I will try and quit when I get to goal since quitting initially can make it hard to stay on track with eating. Well I decided that I'd had enough and 2 days ago I quit. I feel very proud of myself. I am still having some bad headaches but I have no desire to smoke, I am done for good. Also I have stayed on plan the past two days. I have been drinking a ton of water when I feel anxious instead of eating. I know I will be so much healthier and my health is worth it! My husband also tried to quit but today caved and bought some cigarettes. I have been good though and haven't even had a puff.

Congrats! Such a big feat to quit and lose weight at the same time. Anticipate slow or stalling weight loss. But your heart and lungs will thank you!

Why? As long as she doesn't substitute eating for the cigarettes, she should have no problems.

Thanks so much everyone, I feel better already! My oldest DD was very excited when I told her I had quit smoking (she is 4) and it really made me happy and want to stick with it.

Big Kudos to you!

I quit a year ago this past October...Best thing I ever did! Get through the withdrawal and them worry about the weight...Use the water as your new cigarette! Hang tough!

Thanks so much everyone. I feel healthier already! It just was feeling like kind of a joke to work hard on my weight and health and still be smoking. I was just ready to quit! I have quit twice before but it was for my pregnancies so it wasn't hard to quit then. Of course after I stopped breast feeding I went right back to smoking. I am determined to quit for good this time!

Good for you Liz! I know it must be hard to concentrate on quitting smoking and losing weight...but I just know you'll be successful at both!
