  1. HI All, Reaching out here because it would seem I cant find any support and I thought here might help. I quit smoking in 2013 and truly have never looked back. I have lost 127 in 2003 and kept it off until I quit. I did gain 10 lbs after i quit but not from food. Apparently my metabolism along with my thyroid died at the same time. I guess nicotine really was a preservative. Anyway, I workout 6 days a week for 45-50 minutes, I am on WW so eating is not the issue but no matter what I do I cant lose weight and now it is more like 40 lbs as anything remotely like a carb and I gain. My thyroid medication is regulated now after almost 2 years and my doctor tell me all hormones and stress levels are normal so my only thought it that my metabolism is still a wack. Anyone else experience this lack of ability to lose weight no matter how much diet and exercise? Any thoughts are helpful.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
