Thanks new SP friends! This is very exciting for me, I'm stoked and ready to incorporate everyone's ideas and encouragement into my new found lifestyle. Yep, I had been a smoker for 32 years (on & off) never been smoke free unless I was pregnant (3 x's in 32 years) It has been a rocky road, but I've got some all-terrain shoes (metaphorically) and I'm ready to roll. I guess I was so focused on not smoking, I 'crutched' on munching my way out of my clothes. I began to buy bigger sizes, until I realized; I LIKE THE CLOTHES I HAVE and I wanted to wear them until they were worn out! Investing in what years I have left to watch my three children grow, the three grandchildren I have to watch grow and the many more to come. This is going to be the best adventure I've had yet.
Please check out the teams I am on: DO IT FOR LOVE! (co-leader), Keep it Simple & Make Life Happen!

Yes! I quit SMOKING 101 days ago....and also, 14 pounds ago.. Ugh! I have been a fan of SparkPeople for many years. The tools, advice, coaching, (etc.) has all been a great reference guide for me since 2009. Today, I am in need of a reality check. I bought my first "self-help book" and yes, it is the Spark Solution. 14 days from Monday I will have more understanding, more perseverance, more motivation and a TON of MOMENTUM! I'm so Happy to be ABOARD this quest to make myself not only a "QUITTER" but also a "LOOSER" too before this year ends.
