How I Quit Smoking and Lost 22Lbs.
Britta D. is a mother of two. She was a heavy smoker until, two years ago, she got pregnant with her second son. At that point, she firmly decided to quit smoking—and she did! It was a huge step, but it was 100% forward for her—a wise, timely move for the present and future health of her and her family.
Apart from the obvious benefits of quitting smoking, one inevitable outcome of the pregnancy and nicotine cut-off—one many women are well-aware and quite scared of—was progressive weight gain.
“My body took [on] so much due to quitting smoking and being pregnant. I tried to lose weight with diets but felt sad and did not lose any kilos,” Britta remembers. She was sad because she felt fat, which had never been her problem before. “I have never been a fat person. And then I gained so much, and did not know how to lose it.”
“When I got my kid, I started to try losing weight, but I couldn’t. I did all the [body] wrap things, I did a protein diet, [and] I felt really tired. I tried, I tried, and tried, but it all didn’t work.”
Britta underlines the failure factor she thought she couldn’t beat: “[When] I stopped smoking, the calories didn’t go down that easily back then because smoking is a calorie burner. Everyone knows that.” She was almost in despair when she came across HEALBE GoBe, which she decided to give a try—and never regretted.
