Three weeks into my quit and 12 pounds heavier. I don't really care. Not because I can afford to gain (cuz I'm a little fluffy to begin with). It's because I'm not overly concerned about it. I'm concentrating on my quit...PERIOD. My plan is to get thru the first month...THEN start paying a little closer attention to what I'm putting in my mouth. For the first 30 days, as long as it wasn't a smoke, I ate, drank, chewed, sucked, and indulged in whatever I wanted. I'm pretty active in my job and am now starting to get some energy. I've really been babying myself, napping when I can, hot baths (taking all sorts of ME time). I am amazed at all the time I have now! I may be babying myself but certainly haven't been lazy!! I've noticed I'm much calmer and laid back. I don't get myself worked up over the little stuff like I used to (always looking for an excuse to smoke more?). I've taken on an attitude of enjoyment, positivity, and tolerance. For me its a lifestyle change. And come next week I'll add another dimension...eating healthier and incorporating some exercise. Baby steps and I have no doubt the weight will drop!
