It's amazing the advice and facts given to me about quitting smoking have all come true. My Father (RIP) once told me if I wanted to quit smoking I'd have to start exercising like crazy (this was back when I didn't). Well, I gained the 7 lbs they say you will after quitting and increased my workout volume to no avail. My doctor told me it's not unusual to not be able to lose the weight until after a year of quitting. For me that milestone was June, and today I stepped on the scale and was THERE!! HOORAY! Please don't let the weight gain stop you from trying. You can do it!!!
