I gave up smoking May 13 2017. I was already piling on the weight prior to that, but it took another 3 months for the eureka moment of getting healthy.
I don’t miss the fags & certainly won’t be starting again. And I love being 5 stone lighter, I love being a size L instead of 2XL, but I am still slightly overweight even now.
The extra calories this week have hopefully prepared the body for a bit of a blitz… I looked this morning & was showing a small loss, which on 2300 calories every day I am quite happy with, first time in 18 months that I have eaten that many calories whilst trying to lose weight. I have usually aimed for 1500-1700 a day but free of the shackles of a MvF weighin, it was time to experiment.
