Thank you for the insight on your progress!! That's fantastic!! I will try the frozen smoothies too!!
Sounds like you have built up a lot of confidence! That's great to hear! Do you stil have cravings after 3 months?
Quitting smoking is a lifestyle change, kind of like dieting. It doesn't need to be called a diet, just change the eating habits which is what I did two years ago and lost 15 lbs and kept it off :)
I'm only 5ft 3 and 118 lbs, but I have to incorporate the gym regularly. So now with day number 5 of no cigarettes, I have to stay focused on what goes in my mouth! LOL
So with being a non-smoker, I have to view as a lifestyle change and I hear that it takes 30 days to create a habit and 30 days to lose one. So, I have to keep busy and change my routine a little bit, but I do sleep well which is good. I am still on a patch to help with my irritability, I do have coworkers at the office I have to consider :)
But they are supportive and I try to keep my cravings in check which I might add are better, yesterday afternoon was a little rough for a few hours, but got through it.
I will keep busy this weekend by staying out and active and be around people who don't smoke. I only have two girlfriends that smoke. But the one I don't see often, the other, well we're supposed to go xmas shopping on Sunday...I'm still thinking about that. She'll try to tell me why don't i wait until after new year's, blah, blah. But last weekend felt like the right time. Thursday november 28th I decided that it was time and it felt right in my heart.
I just need to be strong in my belief that this is right for me and not anyone else :)
Sorry this message dragged on...maybe I'm just venting, but I got through another day!! YAY
I need to get through 7 days, and then then day by day, by day is all I can do.
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for the words of encouragement!!
