Today marks the one year anniversary of the day I quit smoking. I'm the same weight that I was a year ago (maybe a couple of pounds lighter) and even though I gained weight shortly after I quit I did manage to lose it within the year. I'm determined to continue with my weight loss and the fact that I signed up for a 5k in 2 weeks and a 10k in August helps me stay focused. I'm following a training schedule that has me working out 6 days a week. My endurance could be better and I wish I could run faster like right now but I guess I have to be patient.
I'm still battling my midnight cravings but it has gotten much better lately. I'm conditioning myself to eat a banana, bell pepper or some other fruit or vegetable when I wake up and think I'm hungry. My fridge is stocked with plant based foods and I feel better having cut diary, wheat and sugar out of my diet. I'm hoping this huge change in my diet continues to help me lose weight. So far so good.

    Wow, you have come so far in a year. Sometimes it's hard to be patient when you want to see results NOW, but hang in there, it will come. Keep rocking it.
