Hi this is my first week on SparkPeople. Four months ago I quit smoking - quit cold turkey. I was a pack a day smoker and smoked for over 20 years. After getting a chest cold and couldn't breathe I finally realized that I needed to quit smoking, I needed to be around for my girls. I needed to get healthier
That was September 24, 2012 now 4 months later and still smoke free, it's now time to address the weight gain. I'm not sure how many pounds I have put on - truth be told I haven't weighed myself. I'm afraid. I have always struggled with my weight - been on many diet plans - Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Herballife. They have helped - but it's costly.
After a web search I found SparkPeople. I thought WOW, I know what it takes to loose weight. I need to count calories and exercise - this will help. So far I am surprised how much this has helped me. I am planning my meals, I'm drinking my water, need to do more exercise but I'M MOTIVATED. I'm not thinking in terms of failure but of success.
I'm looking forward to getting back into my thinner clothes. I looking forward to a healthier me. For my girls, my husband for ME.
