I quite in 1997 and still at odd time want to smoke, I don't of course.

Try and stay with it as time does help

Congrats on quitting smoking. I'm a previous smoke myself so I know what you're going through. It's been many years for me, but I still crave them from time to time. Keep up the good work & stay healthy.

I was thinking more aerobic workouts to burn fat before I try and to 'muscle' up, but I think I should do strength training to burn calories. When I'm huffing and puffing while exercising, it makes me glad I don't smoke anymore emoticon

Life may not be the party we hoped for but while we're here, we might as well dance.

Welcome Claudine! I also want to congratulate you on quitting smoking. That's such a great reason to celebrate, every day.

A great way to rev up the metabolism is strength training. You don't have to use heavy weights, or any weights for that matter. Lots of people get started with using their body weight (think pushups, situps, squats - no equipment necessary).

Have you seen the videos for strength training with SparkCoach Nicole?

It's been over a year and I still miss it from time to time. It used to take the place of food. Since I quit smoking, my metabolism has died, I'm 63 so I don't think it will ever kick back up (my metabolism) :-(
I exercise but it's not enough!
