Last Run was short lived ... lets hope this run goes better ... last year I actually got into the 60's.. yesterday I peaked at 86 .. so not cool... day 2 on track ... anxiety up as i detox from the work.. but I am on track .. and scales coming down fast ... first goal is to be solidly into the 70's by end of next week .. and hopefully i can feel clean and healthy again ...

Good luck everyone

I am still plugging away ... not with as much stealth .. I am day 7 cold turkey giving up smokes, and TRYING to stick to Cohen's, down 6 kg's so I am over the moon with the result for the month , but the munchies in the middle of the night I need to get a hold of.. I am blaming the Quitting smoking .. worst thing is i would love a cigarette .. none of this is easy but no way do i want to put on any more weight going through this ordeal ... I love this hollow space ... A place where I can come and whinge, whine LOL

Wow - aren't you a wee champ !! Giving up smokes too? Wow again....





Sounds like September's start is progressing well, so good on you. Have you arrived at the "zone" yet? Or is the smokes craving keeping the zone at bay?


I am closing on 4 years smoke-free - wife and I both gave up after she arrived in hospital with penumonia early in 2015. I was already on Champix - it was helping me and it seemed to remove much of the mental "need" for a smoke. So, if you were wanting a bit of help, I can say Champix worked for me. I had already cut way down when wife decided she wasn't going to smoke any more, so that helped me to finally cut them for good. With her smoking while I tried to give up it was harder than ever as the tobacco smell was always in the house, so once she quit I did too - off Champix and all.


One thing we did do was to leave an opened pack of ciggies on the fridge - they were for if "we wanted one". So, we weren't grieving for "something we no longer had" as they were there - we just chose NOT to have one. We threw the packet out 18 months later..... still nearly full, but the ciggies within were rather sad-looking


Good luck as you fight the good fight - and power to your arm,


Regards,
Koh

Thanks Koh.. I feel like I am on the straight and narrow with the smoking... day 9 smoke free and life is feeling like its getting back to normal, feeling good...

On plan , but the weight is not coming off... i think it might be because of the trauma of quitting smoking the body is still trying to re adjust , or maybe it has thrown my hormones fully out of whack .. either way i am staying on plan, no need to go in any other direction .. it will all come together in the end ..

Stay strong every one .

Wow Jessy you are doing fantastic - giving up smoking plus Cohens - well done and how fantastic you are going to feel in a few weeks time, let alone the extra $$$'s you will now be able to spend on treating yourself.

Wishing you a stress free weekend.

WB

My Dilemma ... Why is the weight really not coming off in a normal timely Cohens manner.. So I pulled out the plan again ( I just use a photo copied Meal planner on the fridge ) and had a good look at it again... In the bin went the Whole Egg mayonnaise.. I know its not on plan ... but it is so yummy.

re looked at my eating times.. missing meals , water intake , diet soda intake ... multi vitamins... see how it goes now... My way wasn't working cutting only a few little corners... back to the hard core Cohen's Plan... hopefully the weight starts peeling off... ( AGAIN !! )

HI Jessy, yes - for the weight to come off as it did before, then you need to be 100% true to plan - times, food, water etc. I have stopped using mayo totally as a teaspoon wasnt enough hence I would add a little more. I know from reading diaries that even brands of curry powder can make a difference however I was never a great curry fan so wasn't a problem for me but if you do like to add curry powder, then maybe find the thread on it to make sure your brand is compliant.

I am taking to the slow route - with trying to be lighter each Saturday morning, even by just a few 100gms makes me happy however I need to work on the fact that it takes me until Thursday until I get back to the previous Saturday
hence I need to get my weekends under control.

Sending you positive weight reducing vibes
wB

And Cohen's is working its magic again ... Sorted my eating times out around work and sleep... water intake up ... no Whole egg mayo... no mayo at all ( Thanks WB ) just salad dressing and the weight is dropping again Maybe 5 weeks to be back in the 60's... that's a realistic projection... ODAAT ...

I have never tried it. Do you cut/slice the apple up before you microwave? This could be a nice way to finish the day for me.


I have just planted four apple trees - I know it is a bit late in the season for this year so roll on next year (though not sure how i will get through all those apples on my 2 fruit allowance)

That sounds good Jessy. I remember having something similar from my last time doing Cohens. I think I also added a bit of sprite as well.
