Welcome to our team! Congratulations on quitting smoking! I have been an ex-smoker for over seven years. Yes, I, too, gained weight after quitting but you can lose that weight and more if you set your mind to it!

Welcome! The fitbit is the best motivator I have found so far! I have discovered (or admitted) I am very lazy. It keeps me moving. Congratulations on the quiting the cigs. One of the hardest things I have ever done.
The choice is mine. I am in charge of me. Live healthy.
to all the quitters!! It has been 10 years (6 months & 5 days!) for me- but who's counting! I had alot of health problems and feel 100% better. Also gained about 30 pounds- took it off in 2007, and then unfortunately gained it back! But am not giving up on getting it back off!

you'll enjoy your fitbit one. I quite smoking almost 2 years ago as well. Good for you and all of us who did it. Yes, I gained about 30 as well. But thank goodness I've lost all the weight I gained from quite smoking. You can do it too. Good luck on your health journey.
