back in the quit

Um...you can change my official quit date to 1/5.

My chosen date was 1/1 and I did great for three days (cold turkey)...YAY ME! But going into the fourth day hubby smoked a cigar in the van on the way back from dinner--where we sat in the fucking smoking section because the wait was over an hour for non--and I caved.

For me, cigarettes are like Lays potato chips...I CAN'T have just one. My brain does this "one a day, two a day, three a day...is better than a pack a day" thing. Ok, it IS better. But I don't want to be a better smoker. I want to be a NON smoker.

So here I am...
One day, 6 hours, 3 minutes and 42 seconds. 31 cigarettes not smoked, saving $6.62. Life saved: 2 hours, 35 minutes.

But can I be a quitter AND a loser?
How come these great things we do for ourselves sound so negative like that? Click here to enlarge

I know, it's horrible isn't it? Horrible but great! Click here to enlarge

And to answer your question... YES, you can be a quitter and a loser. Just don't try to tackle both right away at the same time. Give yourself time to adjust to being a non-smoker, and THEN worry about your diet. Click here to enlarge

As usual, Salty is exactly right. Quit smoking THEN worry about losing weight. You can still exercise (what you can anyway with your bum foot!) because it'll help with quitting smoking. After a week or two, you can start changing your eating habits. Being a Quitter is your #1 priority right now. Click here to enlarge
