Weight Loss Support - Twelve days without smoking and
08-07-2008, 04:53 PM
one week tracking what I eat and so far I have not been telling myself nasty things, but being kind to myself and telling me I am going to achieve my goals. With the tracking page I have been able to visualize exactly what I bring into my body. It's been eye opening and I guess a good start. Staying motivated (being constant) is one of my biggest problems. At home, in my life, in everything, it has always been. I want to change and I will do it slowly. I have promised myself this. I just turned 40 (woohoo) last monday. During that day I thought I would be feeling down, but instead I had so many moments during the day when i just felt, i dont know, grateful, I guess. I was coming down the stairs at home, and suddenly it hit me how blessed I have been during my life, I have a home, I have a car to go places, I have a loving DH and a beautiful daughter and I felt so blessed and grateful. I don't want to waste more time complaining. I won't give up and I will stay focused, even when it gets hard, even if I cry and feel I can't do it. It might take me a year or two, but I will change my life around. I will.

Even tho we don't know each other...may I please tell you how wonderful your doing?!:hug:and if I also may...looking at it from another perspective...LOOK,at what turning 40 has GIVEN you...what a gift you are giving yourself kiddo..and you'r loved ones will reap the benifits as well. It's not easy,as all ex smokers know,but ex smokers all know how worth it is a zillion times over. Stay focused and strong...:hug:...from 8yrs.1month & 18days..unhooked;) Take care,choices...choices,choices:D

I know its really hard but it's so worth it! I have been a non smoker for 10 weeks and just started back tracking my food too. It has been a tough road but SOO worth it! If you need a shoulder just pm me!!!

Yea!!! I love it when someone quits.
My dad died from emphysema. It's a horrible life and death.
I'm so glad you've decided to quit.
Best wishes to you! :)
