No One Likes A Quitter

No One Likes A Quitter“I’ve noticed since you quit smoking, you’ve gained weight.”

“Yes, three pounds”

“No, more like ten”

Nope, doesn’t hurt. No, it doesn’t hurt at ALL.

I stand on the scale, and see that I have gained three pounds after four months of quitting smoking. That’s the dream. That’s amazing, considering the horror stories.

I gained three pounds.

Hilarious that my scale tells me three pounds and my friends tell me ten.

Hilarious that my scale tells me three pounds but my mirror tells me twenty five.

Hilarious that my scale tells me three pounds but my clothes don’t even fit me.

Hilarious that my scale tells me three pounds but I feel like I’ve gained fifty.

Anorexia, forever a hateful, hopeless bitch.

  1. Quitting smoking is a huge achievement, though, so that’s something to be proud of. I know it’s tough to completely shake mental illnesses/eating disorders even once they’re mostly conquered–you’re forever susceptible.

  2. 3 pounds in 4 months? I could do that overnight ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t worry about that, or what your friends say, it’s probably just one of those little fluctuations, and in any case, giving up smoking is worth 3 pounds any day! Congratulations on that!

  3. Oh pshaw! 3 pounds – you are doing great! A gentle tweak to your exercise routine and/or eating and you will be good to go. FYI, we all need to figure out to love ourselves at any weight … a total challenge, but worth it : )
