Hi!
If you were my patient,  I would advise you that people gain weight no matter what!  Depending upon why you went off the pill, you might want to re-start.  If you are off for good, it can take up to about 3 months for the hormones to sort themselves out again.  Most people return to their baseline within a few cycles.
Good luck!
