I assume at least two thousand dollars saved...only think about it while on this site but funny that thought popped up several times this week, assume it was last receptors shutting down. I drank a lot of flavored ice chip water, sugarfree mints and candies...did gain 15 lbs which I’m now working on losing..good trade in my opinion. Had a list of sayings and quotes I got from here and would read them through cravings.

It is doable, and worth it.

Congratulations turtles. Hopefully I'll make it in 4 more months. You made it girl. Be very very proud of yourself. It's a tough road sometimes.

Hello Turtles!

A huge congratulations to you!!!

You were a big help for me in my first week when you wrote “ if you have just one you will be back where you started, and where you started is desperately wanting to be where you are”.  That. Was. Huge. It made a big impact and difference for me. I’m sad you only think about it when you are on here, but hopefully you are able to turn that thought into a positive one. 
 

Thank you for leading the way!!

It’s not a bad thing that I think about it only on here, that’s just because I’m talking about it etc and during my regular day it doesn’t come up.  But back when I quit, I did it cold turkey and it was painful.  That was to ever remind me that just one led to that and never do it again.

youll make it, you’re through the worst.

Oh glad to hear it’s not bad. I love having you folks that have “crossed over” come back on here and offer support and encouragement. It helps keep me strong. 
Oh yes, I’m gonna make it. This forum is exactly what makes a difference this time.

So now you are "emerita", Turtles.  You have earned a special place in the forum and I hope you will stay and continue to help those just starting out.  I celebrated for you with dinner.  Tonight I made seared arctic char with garlic butter quinoa and fresh steamed cauliflower - chased with a Western New York State Traminette.  Between the quit and the lock down, never been so mindful about food.  I feel that 15 lbs, too - but I think the better diet will help.  The forum has, and continues to be, very important to the quit and I'm grateful for the help from you and all others to get this far.  Excelsior!
