getting chubby

I've been tapering off vics and xanax for about 2 weeks (slowly) I'm down to about half on vics I've read on here that people lose thier appetites and can't eat. The opposite seems to be happening to me, I can't stop eating! I am exercising a lot for me though, and I feel pretty good, does anyone know if there's a physical need for the extra food, or is it just my mind needing to take up another addiction? I sure hope I don't become a food addict. I can't afford to gain a whole lot or I'll be unhealthy I'm 5'5'' and weigh 175, most people don't believe me when I tell them my weight, some of it is good solid weight from exercise, I wear a 12-14 which I don't really consider to be all that big, anyone else experience a huge appetite increase?

I guess I'll just have settle for being chubby, then, at least for now . It's a whole lot better than being stoned all the time! My doctor never has said I was at an unhealthy weight, I guess for my age and body type, I just hope I don't turn into a huge blimp, my blood pressure and heart rate are great 118/75 and usually resting rate @70 bpm, I have the vitals of a 20-year-old so I guess I'm ok.

Yep - gained 20 pounds.  But it was worth it.  I am finally dropping it now - my dream is to get back into a size 8.  Keep dreaming, right? Oh well, main thing is I feel great!
