Snack monster

I have hit my one year mark and have gained 20 lbs. I snack constantly and at first I was okay with the weight but now it's affecting my pockets in a different way. I am constantly throwing out clothes because they are too small and continuously replacing them. I am attempting to curb my appetite but i absolutely love candy. It even crossed my mind to take up smoking again but the smelly clothes, hair, and breathe is too much to bare. Any suggestions?

    I know what you mean by the weight gain. How about not buying candy. Replace it with something low cal that you like. Take up another hobby/sport. Whatever you do don't take up smoking. There are non smokers who have a healthy weight. At least by being a non smoker you will have more time to seek a solution to the weight gain. I would hate to be suggesting to this community that I might take up smoking again in order to lose weight. Hope you find success.

    How about swapping the urge to smoke with 10 minutes of exercise? Set up small rewards. This week I am working towards DAISIES. When I make it through the week, I will have earned a trip to the nursery for some daisies to plant in my yard, When I see them, then I will be reminded of my choice to QUIT.

    I have seen plenty of overweight smokers recently,I've been observing people smoking alot,all the reasons I gave myself for smoking.To stay slim...as above.To relax..they don't look relaxed.Just 2 of the lies I told myself about smoking
    Smoking makes me feel CRAP ,physically. But worse,it makes me feel mentally crap.I don't want to preach about exercise but just a 20-30 min session 3 times a week has really helped.its become MY thing. Wishing you all luck x
