A month ago I quit smoking. It's been a long journey to get to this point. No nicotine replacement. One month. It's out of my life forever.
Two weeks ago, I started running. Not for a long distance or very fast but I put one foot in front of the other and ran. Neighbors opinions be damned. It feels good.
Now to get a hold of my diet. Since I haven't been smoking and have been exercising I have been eating so much and most of it is junk.
The scale has reflected my twice daily fast food visits and unlimited amounts of processed food. So now it's time to change.
My daughter is on the top of the weight chart at 2. This is because of the unhealthy love I have of chips and candy. Time to breakup with junk food like I did cigarettes.

    You can do it. I remember the food cravings when I quit smoking. Food had not tasted that good for so long.
Now I've been clean for 20 years and I never want to put myself under the nicotine chain again.
Keep on running.

    Great plan! One step at a time. People who try to quit cigarettes, stop drinking, stop eating junk food and begin exercising all at one usually fail miserably at all of them. Quit smoking (check) Start exercise (check) Wean off junk food (in progress)
