Hi I am new, given up smoking and gained weight :(

Hi all, just joined tonight, great site!

I give up the fags 2nd Feb 09 and have gained 7lbs. My own fault though, eating terrible! I am worried if i don't do something now i will gain even more.

I am not that overweight but i hope you will all still give me advice. Starting on Monday so wish me luck.

My mom attends a slimming world group so i have all the books ready, just trying to get my head round the diet, and what to buy from the supermarket, so far, pasta,rice,potatoes and fruit! haha

Does anyone think there is a certain book i need to buy?

I will weigh monday morning to see how much more i have gained :(

Thanks Lucie xx;)

Still rockin' it
Welcome Lucie!

Congratulations on succesfully quitting smoking- that was defo the most important health decision- your 2nd most important is joining SW!
In additin to the books and help on this site, there is a really good article on quitting smoking while on SW on their website- just in case this is still an issue. Your Mum will have the password to access the website and I am sure if you buy her some smash, she will let you have it!

Good luck, mate
Hey Lucie,

I gave up cigs in October 08 and bugger me i put on over 1 half stone!! :eek:

Dont worry though! It will come off if you stick to something, so good luck with SW!

BTW Mullerlights and tangerines have replaced the fags for me :cool:
Aww thanks hun glad I am not the only one, everyone around me seems to smoke now lol

Well done to you, I will try the mullers and tangerines :)
Keep at it mate, you will feel tons better once you have been off the cigs for a few months and wont even miss them.

The smell of cig smoke now makes me heave and i used to smoke at least 20 a day for 13 years.


Starting Again!
Unfortunately I still smoke :( but I figure I can do one thing at a time and my weight is my biggest obstacle at the moment, but hopefully when the time comes I'll get just as much support to quit smoking as I have in loosing weight :D
