Hello and thanks for adding me as a friend! It took awhile for me to get back to my email - I was on travel - hope you don't mind. I looked at your blog and it seems you are feeling some frustration with losing 2/gaining 1. If you keep in mind that you are still one down at the end of the day, it can help. Your body will fluctuate, especially if you are changing the amount of water you drink. Over the long haul you'll meet your goal. Good luck - and I hope you are feeling better (your March entry said you were ill). 3069 days ago
Welcome to Parents of Teens! Great success on your goals! I am a recent member (from Jan 12th) and have really enjoyed the support and encouragement very much. As I skimmed your page and your teams, I noticed we have a few things in common and I just wanted to stop by and offer you a buddy or just someone to vent to about anything. Stop by my page and let me know how you are doing. I know we can do this. Good Luck to us!!
I quit smoking about a month before starting spark, and I know what you're going through. There are tough days and easy days and some days I want to buy smokes just because I don't want them...now where's the logic in that? Just like dieting, quitting smoking is a process. Are you using anything to help you quit? Prescriptions? Patch? Pure will? Support of family? (That's a big one! Accountability is a big thing for me...) I took Chantix to quit, supposed to keep on taking that for 3 months, but I quit taking the Chantix 4 weeks in. Been doing better than I ever imagined. But the temptation is there. Anyway...before I ramble too far on this...It's okay to stumble, everyone does. Just as long as you dust yourself off and keep on trying. THAT'S what counts! (People who never fail, never tried!)
Don't be so hard on yourself. You've taken on a lot to start with. Maybe just for now, try to cut back on smoking. For now though, focus more on your food and exercise. The smoking will come later. You can do this! We both can! 3110 days ago
