Atta girl, Teresa! If you can lose 40 pounds on your own, you can do anything! That takes willpower and strength.
Don't sweat hitting a plateau; I'm in the same boat. (I lost 55 pounds two years ago, gained back 20 this year, started over, & now the scale won't budge!) Just keep on keepin' on. If you do the right things long enough, it will pay off. You just have to find the right routine that works for you--and you will. We both will!
Kudos for quitting smoking and making healthy choices! Kicking the habit when I was in college was the best thing I ever did for myself. You will not only add years to your life, but you will be able to enjoy those years more, too!
And just think, with all the money you save on cigarettes, you can take your healthy self on a much-deserved vacation!
oh wow...quitting smoking is so hard to do so i truly wish you all the best with that. i myself just had to do it cold turkey. not easy! our bodies will def be pissed at us when we make big changes like no smoking and eating the right foods..BUT if you can change your mind..you can change your life. we have to mentally gain the control over what our bodies want. u can do it!! good luck to you!!!!!
