So, as I have spent the last few weeks in a marathon of my kids softball, baseball and basketball games as well as work and summer fun, I have completely neglected Freedom. For that I am sorry. I am doing well at protecting my quit, I am proud of myself. I also cannot button any of my pants :) Instead of panicking about this I am embracing my new "rolls" as they are evidence to me that I am pleasantly "plump" and healthier rather than thin and a "junkie". That is my favorite thing to do when I am around smokers- seeing them as "junkies" sneaking around getting their "fixes". Not nice, I know, but it works. They wouls quit too if they could see themselves the way I do! My plan is to begin a fitness routine this week of walking, which until now haven't really had the energy for or the emotional fortitude. I have gone through the collection of emotions these past 6 weeks. Anger, sadness, irritability.... I am sure I have been difficult to deal with at time (This has been one of the most difficult things I have ever done)- it is "this" that I cling to the most when I have a crave. All of "this" has not been for nothing. I have paid for this with my soul and I am not going to give it away for anything in the world. Jennifer Quit date 6/22/2010

I am grateful for the wealth of information and the always needed support here at Freedom. I can alway find a post here that speaks directly to how I am feeling at that exact moment. I guess I was in a bad place on my last visit here. I really needed to blurt out how I was feeling right at that moment and leave it here in order for me to move along, so to speak. Does that make sense? Anyway, I am now re-joined at my gym and trying to make better eating choices. I am focusing on "health" vs. "weight loss" at this point. I am closing in on 39 and I really really want to feel my best ever when I celebrate 40! (probably that I can remember anyway because I was already dabbling in smoking as young as 12 or 13). So , I still feel a certain disdain whenever my husband goes along his merry way spending our money on $8/pack cigs and going outside frequently to smoke them- BUT- that's his battle to fight. I am busy with my own, and I am ROCKIN it if I don't say so myself. I never believed I could do IT, now I know I can. I smoked faithfully for a lot of years, it's gonna take a while to completely unwrap from their nasty hold on me. Free, Clean, breathing easier, definitely smelling better.....Since 6/22/2010!!!!
