I am beginning to bust out of my clothes with this quit and I have not replaced my cigarettes with food. The only change in what I am eating is that I now chew sugarfree gum. I am actually drinking alot more water as well. I expected an increase in my weight but I really really need to stop gaining and start losing! Has anyone been successful in the early stages of their quit to actually lose weight? Any suggestions? I will tell you I have some physical issues so there are some excercises I cant do.But I am open to any help right now!!
