I'm still keeping on going! Thanks to Steelhead sending messages every so often and keeps me checking in!! Whether or not I post.

I'm so surprised it is 87 days already!! I really didn't know the exact number. I'm also still going, although really slow, on weight loss. I still say it is a lot harder! Every once in awhile I think having a cigarette might be nice, but then it goes away quickly! NOT doing that, ever. NOPE has helped many times, Not One Puff Ever!!

Just keep on putting one foot in front of the other. In spite of all the insanity of life!!

Thanks guys! It is pretty cool!! May 22nd huh...guess I better mark that down. I seriously will forget it, as I forget almost everything else.

The weight loss is slow but I guess 15 lbs beats zero! Plus now that I'm gettin' really OLD it goes off more slowly as well. I've had days where I never ate quite what I was supposed to but have never had a day where I had ONE PUFF! Yipee skippy!!! In fact, I just went outside and there were my two guys, puffing away. Phew, do they ever stink. The son will not smoke around me at all costs unless I just walk in on him, but the hubs does not think. Period. hahaha.

Good luck Jim! I just knew I had to do both at the same time as I did not want to gain any more!  Feeling a bit like a rabbit, though....except I can't even have carrots!! Ha!!!

Thanks again, and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all you Moms out there!! Mine is gone 13 years now and you sure never stop missing them.

Oops! I should say good luck to Nyima on the diet, not Jim....I still get things on this board wrong. Sorry, Jim! haha

Being a tad slow on the uptake, I just realized that yesterday was my 'official' three month mark! Oh, well. Every day without smokes, and eating healthy, is a celebration. Works for me.

Thanks, freeneasy! :)

So, once again, Happy Mom's Day, and all the best to everyone!
