My name is Bek, I live in Perth and want to get rid of the 6 kg I put on when I quit smoking 18 months ago.
I quit smoking several years ago and put on about 20kg, which took me 2 years to get rid of, then I started smoking again for some stupid reason. :evil:

2 weeks after our return from our Honeymoon, I quit again - and have been VERY good in keeping an eye on my weight, but accepted that it would take a little while for my body to get over quitting smoking so I now feel I am ready to get rid of some of this excess weight.

I need motivation to maintain WILLPOWER! Something I seriously lack!
I have 8 weeks until I see my other half (who works away) and I want to be TT&T!!! :wink:

congrats on quitting smoking- I am sure that despite the extra weight you gained as a result you would still feel pretty healthy. Taking the extra weight off will require a fair bit of comitment and will power but if you find foods you enjoy and are healthy it will make it so much easier.

good luck with reaching your goal before hubby gets back :)

Welcome to the forum, Bek. Congratulations on quitting smoking! I think that giving up smoking is the best thing you can do for your well-being, even if you gain a few kilos as a result. I quit smoking eight years ago and I'm so glad I did. It's great that you're addressing your weight gain before it becomes a problem. Good on you for losing 20 kilos you gained after you quit last time! I'm sure you'll lose this 6kg in no time at all. You've shown you can do it before so I know you can do it again!

Good luck!
