1738455 tn?1310867954 I've been a smoker for 20 years now... and 26 days ago, I just quit smoking "cold turkey" do I expect any side-effects on the abrupt stoppage? I am regularly exercising (Bike and run) almost everyday and I am on a diet too when I quit the cigarettes... Meanwhile, just an information for those who would like to quit: "The only way that I found effective for me to quit smoking is the Diet... after meticulously eating only healthy foods...

Avatar m tn I'm not a health professional but have read a lot of reports from my own stress tests, and it sounds like you have a strong heart. An ejection fractions of 70% is something those of us with heart problems would embrace. However, you were given a big warning. Your family history suggests heart problems will visit you, especially because you smoke and are considered obese. I'ts not easy to quit, I know, but certainly it's possible. Losing weight is tough, also.

Avatar f tn t kill yourself) and no soda, alcohol or cigarette smoking. The key to losing weight (and keeping it off) is to never diet... diets don't last! Changing your life does! Remember, real changes don't happen over night, things on life worth having takes effort, dedication and time. Good luck!

290867 tn?1333569278 With DS I lost a little weight and started gaining after I quit smoking, probably cause I was keeping my mouth busy, lol. This time I didn't gain a thing until about 23 weeks, and now at 39 weeks 3 days I've gained 35 lbs...NO clue how I've gained that much in 16 weeks, but yeah...if the dr doesn't seem worried, I wouldn't worry too much yet. As far as the smoking goes, with DS they got nasty and made me feel sick so I was able to quit easily. This time was harder.
Avatar n tn I'm trying to join the air force but I'm 10lbs over the limit. To lose weight I started doing 2 hours of cardio one in the morning one at night. At first I started losing but after 2 week I'm gaining what cardio should I do to lose weight without muscles?
Avatar f tn I quit smoking 10 weeks ago and I never took up eating to take the place of them. I am walking 3 miles about 50 min 4 times a week and I do upper body weights as well 4 times a week and I am still gaining weight. I am eating about 2000 cals a day some days a little less. Lets say I am 50 years old :) My arms and legs are toning up but the mid section is getting bigger! Will this even out as my body gets used to no smoking? Not looking to lose pounds but inches, lots of inches!!

797340 tn?1240507697 I very much enjoy working out! It's just that I lack the energy to do some. I work out daily, I've been told I'm an exercise-aholic. My work-out varies daily. I generally do anywhere from 20mins- and hour and a half depending on how I'm feeling and how much time I have before dinner needs to be put on the table.
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar m tn I smoke marijuana regularly, and seems that it does this more a couple hours after smoking. My question is, is this normal? Is it possible that the marijuana is causing this or causing damage to the eye? And what or why is going on when this is happening?
29837 tn?1414534648 Going into the hospital, I weighed 185 (my normal weight). Upon release I now weighed 192. This after having been denied food for 9 days, then 6 days of regular diet Lately, I noticed my watch is not tight on my wrist anymore, I weighed myself yesterday. I now weigh 175 lbs. This is the weight I weighed at 27 years old. For many years now, my weight has been 185. The now weight of 175 lbs. is a loss of 17 lbs. in less than 3 weeks after leaving the hospital.
Avatar n tn Anyhow Effexor did wonders for my attitude however after 3 years I am now convinced that it was the cause for all the excess weight. Anyhow I was wondering if the weight comes off after I get off the meds? or am I stuck with excess weight forever in which case I will be contacting my doctor because they lied to me.
Avatar f tn Idk your not supposed to lose weight in pregnancy. I mean sOme ppl get really sick and help it but you really shouldn't lose just to lose. You should talk to your doctor about it.
127596 tn?1210922622 m absolutely amazed at the night-and-day difference between the effects smoking - and not smoking - have on my sinuses. After a day or two of not smoking, I can breathe all day, every day, without any congestion. It's incredible. Definitely a plus. I have about a 50% hearing loss in my left ear; it's from a culmination of loud music and myriad head traumas. Anyway, since some of my hearing is gone, I've had a very keen sense of smell for years now.
881362 tn?1240500937 definitely, i am not losing weight. in fact, i gained so much weight. and i am not also experiencing hoarseness of voice. and i also don't have cough... i just have some back pains and sometimes, gray colored sputum. if i take vitamins c and e, would that help??? i am thinking this could be because of some toxins, and i should take antioxidants..
