Welcome! I am new too, on week 2 this week. I can relate, I quite smoking several years ago and gained 30 lb. Although I managed to lose it, my weight has been up and down since then. It is currently way 'up' and I am doing something about it!
Congrats on quitting smoking! I must say that despite the weight gain, it is one of the best things I ever did for myself. After a couple weeks I really noticed a big difference in how I felt. (I used to smoke a pack a day). Especially in the mornings. Good for you for taking action to ward off the all too common weight gain associated with quitting smoking. All the best!
