It's hard work but it is sooo worth it. I went to the doctor this weekend for my regular semi-annual visit and all my numbers were good. In fact, my blood pressure was almost too low and I am off the BP meds. As long as I continue with what I am doing, when I go back in April, we may be going to annual visits.

I'm so proud of you for doing that, and I know it's not easy, as I lived through the quitting with my mom, dad, brother, sister, and my sister's husband. I'm no stranger, as to what happens when you go down that road. So on KICKING the HABIT!!!
Yes, all of my family members added some weight on, after they gave up the cigaretes, but they've been able to slim it back down, by eating healthy and eating their sweets in moderation. I do believe that you can do this, also. I have faith in you and I honestly say from my heart that You've got a great team of ladies and gentlemen who will help you in whatever way they can, and then it becomes !!! You're not alone in this lifestyle change journey, and we're all going to be your cheerleader and soon you'll start seeing that loss! If you need anything, just HOLLER and somebody will be here to give you a hand up! Who knows, it might be me!!!
