Honestly no... in fact, I was the opposite. I was extremely skinny as a child/teen (think 90lbs @ 5'4!) but I did have severe asthma from the cigarettes (including the subsequent exposure in the home). I was in terrible physical shape though, could not even walk the track at school and called in sick for gym days.

I think most of us from smoking moms were also exposed to it in the home and there was probably subsequent inactivity throughout life, from poor lungs, I'm sure that could easily contribute to obesity as well.
