It's a delicate balance

Monday, October 21, 2013

I'm trying to do two things at once. And that is to quit smoking and take off weight.
It's a struggle and I am just holding my own. I have a tendency to excuse my eating saying I need the snacks since I quit the ciggaretts But I also know if just used a little more will power I could go back to my old habit of not eating between meals. But it seems now it is taking everything I have just to quit smoking. I am on my 5th week of no smoking and doing well with that but my hunger has increased and I am substituting food for ciggaretts. I know now is the hardest time. But I just can't afford to gain any more weight!
In the meantime I am just hanging in there!

    Good for you not smoking for over a month ! I quit for 2 months a while back, gained 8 lbs. because I was snacking on the wrong stuff ! I know people who have quit permanently and didn't gain any weight because they kept eating/snacking wisely. One day i will be ready again to quit this expensive habit and spend that money on smaller sized clothes, purses, shoes....hahaha
