The Journey Continues

Well it has been a while since I have posted. First let me say .......... I AM A NON SMOKER!!!!! Holy crap it worked. I can not believe it and I don't know how it worked, but I really don't give a rats ass cause it really did work. I have gotten over the hard part, the withdrawal symptoms. I had a few nights of waking up in a sweat, but no cravings at all. It's like the memory of how it felt to smoke, the taste, the inhaling the smoke has been erased from my memory. ANYWAY..........

I was so encouraged by the results of the stop smoking sessions that I booked a 4 week weight loss package which starts tomorrow night. I know it sounds gimicky, at least I think so, but it worked so well with the smoking that I think it has to be worth a try.

I will be back to post this weekend.

comparison pics - Is my face getting thinner?

The first picture was in August, the second one is current- down 12lbs. Granted my hair is now cut short and I have makeup on in the second pic, I may not be thinner, but I definitely look better in the second picture, so all the water and healthy eating has done some good :)

My cigarettes are going up in smoke

So today was the day. I had my consultation with the hypnotherapist. Next Saturday I go in for my first of two hypnotherapy sessions to quit smoking. I am excited and a little bit sad at the same time. Smoking has been part of my life for 28 years. But I am so ready to quit and am looking forward to reaping the benefits of being smoke free.

I also realize that quitting smoking may make it a bit harder to continue on my weight loss journey. I think for a couple of weeks I will try to concentrate on giving up smoking while just trying to maintain my new eating habits. They hypnotherapist knows I am on weight watchers and I think she will incorporate my eating habits into my hypnosis session.

I am STOKED and cannot wait to be able to say I AM A NON SMOKER.
