It's amazing to me even at a young 60 something how powerful are will / want / desire can be I relied on inner strength when I first quit as I knew nothing about support groups (I'm so glad I found one No man land sucked)
Just under a month ago I went on a diet and started to walk My first couple days of my walk consisted of walking up a hill stopping, catch my breath and return home a whooping 0.2 miles. I was disappointed with myself
I was left with 2 choices I could give or dig a little deeper I figured I Quit Smoking So I dug deeper Each day I set a new goal to make I pushed myself a little bit further I added a few more hills and I still have to catch my breath due to emphysema but I am happy to say I now take a 2.75 mile walk every morning and I have lost 20 pounds.
I have a long way to go on the weight loss but the strength and confidence I gained in quitting smoking I'll get to where I want to be
For those who want to quit smoking You have to want it. You have to work for it. You have to BELIEVE you can do it
On a side note I have to thank my doctor for calling me obese It P me off. Of course I know I was but I never liked the word I was happy with way over weight or really fat. By the way I do really like my doctor
