I really don't want a fag I just don't want to put on the weight. I thought I was doing everything right and taking up another sport as well as running. Today I had some new clothes delivered for a new job starting soon and had to send them back. TOO SMALL.
I intend to get up tomorrow and go for a run. I really hope this feeling passes though. I was on 20 a day and thin! Oh I won't go back on them a) because I have saved a fortune and b) they were killing me, slowly.
I'm on a real downer at the moment. I gave up smoking on 17th June and took up running. The longest I have run in one session is 21 mins. I felt fantastic when I achieved that time. BUT I am putting ON weight!!! I am 5ft 1" and always weighed 8.5 stone. Now I weight 9.5!! I just feel like going up the shop and buying 10 cigs. It's driven me to tears tonight. Sorry for the moan.
I've had a bad back for about 12 years now and since I've started running it's been fantastic. I actually get a good nights sleep. I can't walk for 20 minutes without my back aching but I can run for 20 minutes and not a peep from it.
