    Not at all. Extra weight will not make the attacks more frequent.

    Exercise improves your lung function, so stopping it may have caused you to experience more attacks. Also if the weight gain we significant, it could u have caused fat accumulation around your neck and "narrowed" your airways. That may be the reason. Don't forget also, you may also coincidentally have been exposed to some new triggers that you aren't aware of. I will advise you go back to the regular exercise, and stay fit.
