Well I'm feeling good about my weight situation. last year I set out to lose 28 pounds & get back down to my high-school graduation weight of 175 pounds. I am 5'9" & am now 174 pounds. No belly & buying smaller pants & shirts & getting back into the ones I used to wear. Mostly by eating less calories. I just basically cut my diet intake somewhere by 1/3 - 1/2. I feel great.
So I'll stand on the side lines & cheer for those trying to do the same.
As to quiting smoking I used to smoke a pipe I know it s bit different then cigarettes but my advice is what I did, don't get one in your hand you won't be able to put it in your mouth. Also don't keep any cigarettes around & dont hang out with those that smoke. Maybe get some gum to chew. Go out to the shop & stay busy. Even if it means cleaning & rearranging the entire shop & videoing it & writing a book about it STAY BUSY.
