Below is my 100 day ramble for being an ex-smoker. I have used the same desire in my weight loss journey. Just change some of the words and this is how I have acheived my weigh loss. I am tremedously proud of both accomplishments.
SparkPeople gets kudos for everything I have done and learned regarding weight, health and diet. You people rock!!!
LTW(Lose the Weight), KTQ(Keep the Quit) and Peace Out.
RainbowCO's 100 day Ramble
From RainbowCO on 4/13/2007 10:13:17 PM
I was so excited the 1st hour of my Quit. Already seeing a new path and a new me. Course right after that I went to bed where I stayed for the next 12 hours. Hey, it worked, got me a day into my Quit.
There have been good days and bad days during this 1st 100 days. But even a bad day not smoking, beats my smoking days. I think this is the way it will be-many great days, a few not so great days-isn't that just life?
I will always be an ex-smoker and as such will be diligent and protect my Quit. On day 101 I had a cigarette dream, I'm glad for this reminder. I will pledge everyday to be smoke free one more day.
These are the things I truly believe made this My Last Quit.
1. I WANTED to Quit. This was my Quit and I did it for me. I WANTED TO QUIT.
2. I came to the Q, where people were going thru the same urges, anger, hope and recovery. And gladly shared their wisdom and experiences. YOU ALL ROCK!!!
3. Use whatever means it takes to get and stay smokefree. For me it was the Patch. After many Quit attemps, I finally admitted I needed this tool to help me quit.
4. Let nothing deter you from your Quit. Not weight, friends/loved ones, work, play, nothing.
5. Sometimes it takes more than 1 quit for it to take. Keep Trying. Losing a Quit is not failure, not quiting again right away is.
6. 1 oz of Lindt's 85% Cocoa Dark Chocolate is my friend
