I refuse to go to meetings and pay for it again so I'm right there with you with that. I weigh once a week and my diet is not a good one....I just don't eat but once a day. And it's very low in calories when I do eat. I know, I know, my body thinks I'm starving it and it's going to store fat. Whatever, the weight is coming off the way I'm doing it so I'm going to keep doing it.

I have a goal, and I'm going to meet that goal by August because I have a 30 year reunion to go to. I was walking and I'm going to start it again tomorrow but I wasn't able to walk for a couple of weeks because of the ice and snow. I have another secret that I won't share here but it helps curb my appetite. Sorry, that's one just for me!!

I'll try the deep breathing you suggested, can't hurt that's for sure! And I'll look into Adkins....but I don't think that's the diet for me. I definitely need more CO2.....I have sleep apnea and I think my brain is short circuiting from lack of oxygen!!
you are a jewel.

Hey you know what? I would love to learn how to knit, my grandmother used to knit some of the coolest things. It's really a lost art and I think there are places around here where you can learn how to knit....knitting classes. I need a hobby like that so I'll quit smoking!!

Listen, my friend, June tried quitting smoking a few months back, but then some unexpected stressors befell her life, so she's now put off quitting smoking till things settle themselves out. But the more I thought about your post about learning to knit AND use it as a way to quit smoking, it strikes her as an excellent idea....Your hands are occupied, and you're doing something that's enjoyable. Check with your local library or newspaper...I am willing to bet there are places where you could be taught to knit at no price. People are like that: If they're good at a craft like knitting, they love sharing/teaching it to others....Even a convelescent home would have patients who I bet would love to teach you how to knit, and it would help them, as well. Check it out!

Knitting is easier than you think. I knit a pair of socks once.

Of course I don't mind Ans..... they had a concert on Saturday night and of course the FAM went to support them... my head is still pounding but I must admit their music is kind of catchy!

Thanks June, I've always wanted to learn how to knit anyway and maybe this is the time to do it! I know there's a local place, or there used to be, where ladies would get together to knit and klatsch so it's just a matter of me getting off my duff and going!
