Good morning everyone . . .
Just a little extra information for you.
**** My mother is a nurse and told me that it is a fact that smoking burns between 10-20% of your calorie intake, so when you quit most people usually do gain weight.
**** HOWEVER, it only takes between 6 mos to a year for your metabolism to adjust to this change and after that, you'll be fine.
PLEASE don't start smoking again because of a little weight gain.
You can lose the weight. You can't regain your health . . .
I am now at 5 mos. of no smoking. I have not gained any weight, and I don't know why . . . but if I did, I wouldn't care. I am soo happy with my new life w/o cigs, a little extra weight couldn't bring me down. Just work on one thing at a time.
Chew a lot of gum and drink alot of water . . . and stick to it. You can work on the weight issue later.
Good luck to you all!!
