I never said that it's "easy", but it is much harder when people hang on to their excuses. I did say that it will take much less time to take the weight off than it did to put on, is that not true?
You said it yourself, you lost the weight even with a thyroid condition, enforcing what I said. Unless I'm understanding it wrong, when you quit smoking you put the weight back on. If this is correct what does that have to do with your thyroid?
