Recommended Posts

Wow. I had a dream last night that I had one puff of a cigarette and I almost died. I'm craving it too though!

I wish I had never picked one up....have you smoked at all since surgery or had any kind of nicotine?

No way. Too afraid! I quit before surgery but sitting around doing nothing all day makes me bored and that's where the cravings come in. Also, I'm staying with my parents for the time being until I feel like I can completely take care of myself (I'm single and live alone with two doggies) - But my Mom smokes like a pack a day. So hopefully once I'm back into a good routine and away from her nicotine I will lose the craving!

You got this. Pop a sugar free mint in your mouth and (unfortunately) be a pessimist and remember all the problems associated with smoking with bariatric surgery.

I quit for 3 months before surgery and started smoking again 3 months after. Not recommending it as smoking is bad for you regardless. But I gave up all my other vices. I felt like this is the only one I have left! I'll work on quitting when I'm ready. Just like with my weight loss. It's one of those stupid things I never should've started again. Had a reallllly stressful day at work. I have a client who just does not like me and has been trying to get me fired. It made and still makes no sense...I did nothing to her! But, just like that, I started back up. I've had no issues though. I mean aside from the side effects that smoking causes on its own. End of the day no one should smoke. It's a really tough habit to kick. Best of luck my friends!!!

Well, just my opinion. Why smoke and shorten you life? Most of have wls to live longer and healthier! Everytime you put the cigarette to your lips? Think , I have one hour less with each puff. I am doing it to stop drinking. My friend who smoked. She is back in the hospital! I am working at making my vice = exercise.

I smoked after my surgery and got an "Ulcer". That crap hurts, now i have to get an Endoscopy done on the 12th of july (ugh) maybe even surgery. Definitely wasn't worth it. The crazy part is i don't even smoke anymore smh. I was 2 years clean from cigarettes until after the surgery. Then depression hit and i tried smoking again. Now im suffering greatly because of it. Once my ulcer pain got worse i never touched another cigarette again and never will. Take it from me, it's totally not worth it. Just be strong. You got this...!!!!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
