congratz on quiting smoking. it is alot better for you health. my mom and stepdad just quit smoking (my mom almost a year my stepdad id say maybe five months?) and they did put on some wieght, but id rather them be lil overweight than have cancer. plus i want them to be around for my wedding next year. plus you can take off the weight. you can do it just want to have have the motivation and the erge to want to. if you need help or someone to talk to feel free to send me a message. i know that it is prob. hard in the begining, but in the long while it is worth it not to smoke. instead of junk food try eating veggies or fruit. (they have the same problem that you always have to have something in your hands). or try either watching tv or working outsixe to get y our mind off of that bad habit.

im just a girl, standing in front of a boy..askin him to love her

Congrats on the quitting smoking. That is my last step to being healthy. I have cut back quite a bit, however am afraid of gaining weight due to quitting. I have heard some people gain as much as 10-15 lbs. Anyone have tips?

Congrats on quiting the smoking. That in itself can be a challenge, but a good health move. My aunt and a couple of my friends went through the same thing where they quit smoking and gained weight. You can do it! Just apply that same determination you had to quit smoking to loosing the weight. Good luck!

Hi, I'm Gary and I'm 27, until June. I spent a lot of my early 20s around 150-155. Now that I have stopped smoking, I gained about 20-23 pounds and now weigh 173. Needless to say, I want to get back down to the 150-155 zone and then focus on building muscle mass instead of fat! I work long hours on occasion and the job comes first. That's just the way the military is. Finding time is going to be difficult and actually getting motivated is hard, but it's something I've got to do.
