Hi, thank you - appreciate that !

It does seem like forever. and now I'm a fatso again by 4.5 lbs.  This time that's just really making me mad though and I think I'm just gonna lose twice that much just in spite because that's complete garbage. I know about the metabolism thing and all that but still!  I exercise every single day whether I like it or not. And trust me, there's plenty of days where I really don't want to take my lunch break to go change in the cold locker room, get all sweaty and ruin my hair then put the office clothes back on when I'm now hotter than heck. but whatever, part of that is the price of being 51 yrs old I suppose. but I'm just mad now legit. so done with getting punished for just trying to quit smoking.  We'll see what happens. On Thanksgiving is when the next 5K race is so I just best be faster that's all I gotta say:)

Noel,

I know what you mean about the weight. I gained 15 then was laid up for couple months and could not do much early this year. But I can not get rid of any and I am 69 (almost 70). Few years back, while still smoking, lost 50 pound but took about 5 years and do not want to go there. So I mainly concentrate on not gaining anymore.

But, do not focus on the weight. Is better to be a little heavier then smoking. I am going to start my walk aerobics on ytube again like I did last winter.

Good luck on the 5K on Thanksgiving - run off some weight and then enjoy your dinner.

Have a great smoke free day....sue quit 3/17/2016

Hey Noel,

I was back to walking in about 2 weeks after surgery in April and have been ever since outside and at the gym. But now that it is turning colder 27 this morning and soon will have snow and ice will have to do my walking all inside. So I pull it up on ytube on my laptop and watch tv at the same time.

Have a great afternoon......sue quit 3/17/2016

Hey Noel,

Just checking in to see how you are doing. I tend to go through the recent months to see how everyone is doing.

Awwww, thanks for checking:) I'm good. It's close to the next 5K event and that always keeps me motivated. It would be stupid to start smoking again the week before something like that.  I do want to though. winter's here, it's gray, cold, snowing. All the stuff I hate. I try to say it's just weather. But it's a pain in the you-know-what. just one of those really annoying thinks that makes me want a cigarette. It's fine though. I probably won't at least not this week or next week. How are YOU doing ?
