My goal is to change my lifestyle (5% at a time) and as a result change my life.
Something I like to call 3-6-9 which draws from old school Weight watchers Quick Start exchange program. Looking at water and fiber more closely and limit time of eating...no good happens after dinner! lol
Fresh start...new chapter

Yeah, I'm one of those disgusting smokers :( But, I don't smoke indoors or around kids and when I'm smoking around other people I always try and position myself so that my smoke is drifting away from the crowd. I try to be conscientious about it.
The area that the mythical town of Charming occupies is less than an hour away from where I live. There's lots of mentions of Lodi, Stockton, Galt... all cities and towns within an hour's drive from my house. They are in San Joaquin county which is about 20 minutes drive from here where I am in Stanislaus county. Of course the actual town where they filmed the show is down in Southern California, of course.
Thanks for the goodie. I think I may have to agree on the trading addictions idea. Years ago I used chewing tobacco (Levi Garrett long cut leaf, not that worm dirt stuff!) but I started having issues with bleeding in my esophagus. Apparently I have blood vessels that are very close to the surface and the irritation in my throat from the tobacco would allow some of the vessels to leak. I was a bit worried about that so I quit the chewing tobacco, but took up smoking! It seems that most of us aren't comfortable without at least a few vices in our lives!
Thanks for the blog comment. Years ago I kicked a Pepsi habit that had me drinking over 120 ounces per day of the sweet stuff, it was fairly easy to do but I didn't really lose any weight! Now I have to try and kick this Starbucks habit, which is like trying to kick heroin! I definitely feel like I am going through withdrawals when I go without for a while, it isn't pretty!
