Default I started to battle my demons; food, nicotine and lack of excercise

I started out in July of 2010 at 182 lbs and I was smoking near 2 packs of cigarettes a day I was 56 years old. I dropped to 111 lbs and am stronger than I was in my 20's.

I have used Fitday for many years and couldn't do without it. The home program was well worth the investment.

check out my before and after pictures.

yes Jane, I gave up almost 2 packs a day. that saved me almost $300.00 per month, so I spent most of that on a personal trainer.

That's the way to do it! Way to go! You look hella ripped in your "After" photo! Maybe you could become a personal trainer yourself one day?

Natalie, I have quit many times, you just have to keep quitting! Everytime I quit I learned something about my hurdles with nicotine that helped me the next time.

Julie - truly inspiring! I quit smoking several years ago and it was probably the hardest thing I've ever done - but WOW is it worth it! It's so nice to not be a slave to the nicotine. No more worrying about when/where I could have a cigarette.

My weight loss has stalled for the last few weeks. You've reminded me of how strong we can be when we put our minds to it!

Way to go!

Jane
