Back on a multitude of wagons
First: now that I'm all mentally stable and what not (tee hee), I'm 2 weeks smoke-free again (as of this Wed., that is). This time, I'm using the nicotine gum, because cold turkey just wasn't cutting it. The gum really helps, too--I've only had 2 cigarettes in 2 weeks, which is a LOT better than I normally do (and both, of course, were when I was drinking).
However, whilst quitting smoking on and off during the last couple of months, I've also gained back 5 of my 10 heartbreak pounds I lost last month. All told, I'm about 10 pounds heavier than I was a couple of summers ago when I was thin and pretty happy with it (I was easily an 8--a 6 in some brands; now I'm still an 8, but a very uncomfortable, tight 8, closer to a 10). Oh, and plus, my crazy pills are known to cause weight gain as well. (My only consolation is that, even with the weight I've gained back, I'm still down almost 20 from where I used to be, so I'm happy about THAT.)
SO, to combat all of that, I'm going back on the eDiets bandwagon. It's what I used when I lost weight a couple of years ago, so I KNOW it works. Yes, I mainly need to count calories and write everything down (the key, I truly believe), but this helps to motivate me and get me organized. Plus I love the weekly food plan and the convenient shopping list it prints out.
I have to sign up for a minimum of 3 months and by then I should EASILY be at my goal weight. So, here we go:
Current weight: 150
Goal weight: 140
