  I have a little black and brown terrier from the shelter named Roxy-I got her when she was two and now she's 7. She got me through some difficult times and is the most loving and energetic little cuddle bug ever. Enjoy your sadie! I hope you have many wonderful memories with her :)

BLEW It At Quitting SMOKING!!!

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Hi, I am very disappointed that I haven't Quit smoking!!! I used to smoke at least 2 and
one-half packs. Now I am smoking a pack a day. A big improvement for me!!
I really hope I can really Quit!! The chandrix made me so nauseauted, and sooooo
constipated. That I quit taking it!! It sure helped more than anything I tried before!!!
I have been sick, running a temp,and sweating profusely. Finally went to the Doctor and am feeling better. Before I go back on the chandrix: I am going to talk to my Doctor
about those two side effectes I menttioned. Doctor is glad I have cut back to one pack
per day!! I am improving on quitting smoking. Very Thankful for that!!!
Thank you for allowing me to vent!!

    Never stop trying to quit cause one day it will work!! I was a 3 to 4 pack aday smoker and enjoyed each one i smoked(i thought) its been 6 years but it took a heart attack and open heart surgery to get me to quit! LOL I really suggest anyone who smokes to quit for their health but also know its not as easy as some think! I think t took me a good year to adjust to not smoking cause it was what i done if i felt stressed,sad happy, actually I had one in my hand most of the time. Really your probably alot stronger than you think and one day you WILL succeed. just dont wait as long as i did. have a great day and good luck on your weight loss journey. emoticon

    I just quit on Sept. 4th.

I have to say I didn't want to. I am on oxygen 24/7 now and don't really have a choice.

DH is suppose to quit today being his first day.

We are using nicaderm patches and gum.

It is hard. I crave I think out of habit at certain times. I grab a straw at times just to chew on.

Best Wishes.

    Please don't say you blew it. You are in progress. You have made progress. That is so important. Just keep going. You will get there as long as that is your desire. I know. I did it this summer. emoticon

    Don't give up! My dad was a 2-pack-a-day smoker for close to 30 years, and he pulled it off. It takes a little patience, a little perseverance, and a whole lotta willpower! But, it can be done. Hang in there!

    It is hard to quit smoking. i have coworkers that have tried. my mother-in-law had luck and has been smoke free for over a year. Cutting down is a big accomplishment and a great start.

    i to am a smoker.people say that it is easier to stop smoking than to lose weight.i don't agree ,at least you can still eat.i will deal with the weight first then tacle the smoking. i think both at once would,for me anyway,to hard.i wish you luck and well done for cutting your smoking in half.

    I too failed. After 6 months of dieting and quitting I gained too much weight for me to deal with both. I think quitting smoking is the hardest thing I've ever tried. Congrats on cutting back, even that is a step in the right direction.

Discouraged about my weight loss!!!

Monday, May 18, 2009

I am very down, because I am not losing weight like I would like!!! Maybe
I am trying to do too much at one time. Almost have quit smoking, and that is good.
Now I want the weight to go down. I will keep trying, and am not giving up!!!

    what I've decided to do ont his my 1000th time around to losing weight.. I'm on day 3.. On June 16, 2009 I will weigh myself for the first time since I started losing weight.. For me, the first month is always the hardest because I lose a lot of water weight at first, then gain some back.. it's a crappy roller coaster.. so I've decided to not weigh myself the first month and have it be a surprise.. :D maybe putting more space between weigh-ins will help you show your progress a little better than weekly or even daily weigh-ins.. :)

    Any progress is good progress - and quiting smoking is great progress. I would not worry about speed but consistancity. That way you won't fall back the moment it is not something you are thinking about. For the record, I'm very slow at losing weight and keeping it down. For nearly 4 weeks now I go back and forth between 162 and 165, but I am gaining in how far I can go with my jog, or how long I can work out. The later is a much better positive than the former is a negative.

Besides... we all know the story of the tortoise and the hare... and it isn't the hare who wins in the end. :-)
(Not saying quick weight loss is bad, just that not everyone or body type can do that and be healthy.)

    It can be very discouraging-I know. But keep going-keep weighing and measuring your food. Put everything into your tracker. Keep moving!
You can do this! That's a great accomplishment about your smoking!!!
You have the right attitude about not giving up. emoticon

    Good on you for not giving up! One thing that I find helped me is every morning as I'm brushing my teeth thinking positive things about myself. Even if they were just things like "Your hair looks nice today" or "You coped will with dinner last night".

People may mock optimism in the present day, but the more positively you think the easier life gets! Best of luck to you! *hugs*
