Pandemic Weight Gain ...Yes or No

Curious...is it just or have many others been eating too much and exercising too little since the covid pandemic began?
I’m definitely fatter and more out of shape.
Exercise and eat sensibly no matter what.

I am both exercising more and eating more, unfortunately eating is winning.

Now there are only two things in life, but I forget what they are.

I have gained 10 pounds in the last year due to COVID and losing my job which helped keep the weight off.I eat right and do exercise daily and have shed about 4 pounds of it, but the last 6 have been a long time coming off.

I have actually lost weight, though it is unrelated to Pandemic boredom. The divorce process has sapped much of my desire to eat like I used to.

I have diabetics so I don't really have a choice.
I have to eat right to survive.

Exercise has never been my thing. Not in the conventional sense anyway.

My exercise comes in the from of everyday activity, I walk a lot, I'm outside doing projects, such as home and property improvements and pursuing my interests, such as photography and gathering wild edibles.

In that way I keep fit.

I'm gaining weight on purpose, but sensibly. I'm following a new exercise regime and roughly keeping tabs on the carb/protein/fat content of my daily intake using myfitnesspal.

This may be controversial, but you won't lose weight at the gym. Just eat MOSTLY vegetables and you will lose weight. Eat as much as you want but MOSTLY vegetables. Use stevia instead of sugar. Avoid sugar. Read ingredient statements.

From Jan 2020, to Aug 2020, I lost over 40 #s, and didnt know why. Then I learned I was now a diabetic, and I blamed that for my weight loss, but my dietitian said it would not last, and I needed to be careful of I would start gaining weight again. Well, since NOV 2020, I have gained back 10#s, but I attribute THAT to my in-activity, because I also have had increasing heart issues, which have caused me to be very sedentary. COVID hibernating is also to blame, but my main exercise over the last year has been SEX, and have not had near as much of that as just 1 year ago, that being due to my COVID hibernation, and not meeting new partners. AND 1 of my 3 FWBs is now preggers (and NO, not mine) and so far hasnt wanted to have funn with me, as she thinks it would be cheating on the baby daddy, tho no plans to get married, but I am awaiting the day when she needs more than he gives her, and I will be ready to resume our funn. AND the 2nd of my FWBs is a bartender, has had COVID, and comes in contact with other COVID infected people all to frequently, and so we have stopped meeting, and so that only leaves me with #3, and we dont meet more than about once a week! Previous to COVID, 1 or the other of my FWBs visited almost daily, so I got alot more exercise.

I was overweight & also I’d lost half a lung 25yrs ago so a respiratory disease 🦠 was the last thing I needed!
So I decided to give up takeaways & only have treats & alcohol 🍺 on the weekends! Also since lockdown I walk every day & try to walk at least 12k steps a day (I’m averaging 20k since March) & have now lost 31lbs!
If I do contract Covid-19 hopefully 🙏 I’ve now given myself a fighting chance to get through it!!

I only gained about 5 lbs., but I did get softer. Working from home.
Just got back to the gym and dropped a few lbs and feel a little better already.

People have been eating too much and using pandemic as an excuse. Parks are open or you can exercise in your home . There many things u can do to avoid weight gain .

It happened. Life changed slightly and I didn’t get as much exercise. I wasn’t out meeting people or just being as busy. Put on a few pounds

Was not able to vote because the two categories do not apply to me.

3rd Category - Maintaining without any changes to lifestyle.

I work in Healthcare so have worked through it all except for 1 month (June 2019) when I had Covid 19 and had to take time off, also training for another marathon so weight has stayed almost static

UN POCO APRIETAN LOS PANTALONES... PERO NO HAY PROBLEMA... SALGO DE VEZ EN CUANDO A LOS BANCOS Y A HACER PEQUEÑAS COMPRAS... PREVIAMENTE, DESOCUPO BIEN MI ESTÓMAGO Y CAMINO DESPACIO, PORQUE SE ME AGARROTAN CADA TANTO LAS PIERNAS... ME DETENGO UN RATO Y CONTINÚO CAMINANDO LUEGO...

LA ALIMENTACIÓN ES IGUAL... YO NO INGIERO CARNES... SÓLO LECHE O HUEVOS... NORMAL... ES RECOMENDABLE NO TRAUMARSE CON LAS PROPAGANDAS OFICIALES... HACE AÑOS VENGO PREPARÁNDO MI WHISKY CON GASEOSA HELADA PARA MATAR CUALQUIER BICHO INDESEABLE... ES NECESARIO TOMAR ALCOHOL DE 40 GRADOS... ES UN DESPERDICIO ROCIAR UN ALCOHOLETE DE MAYOR GRADUACIÓN...

EN FIN... SIN TRAUMAS, LA VIDA ES MÁS SABROSA... YA ME PROVOCÓ UN HELADO DE RON Y PASAS...

A PROPÓSITO...¿EN NAVIDAD LE PUSIERON ALCOHOL A SU CHOCOLATE CALIENTE...?

Nope, have not gained a poundwatch my food intake, only allow unlimited amount of protein, exercise dailyand having live-in boyfriends I am sure helps a lot to maintain my weight. Naomi gained a few pounds, but she is too much into chocolate at the moment and does not move much

I love pussies and adore nice dicks

When all this is over and done with, I'm going to need to workout like crazy. I've gained 15 - 20 lbs. since July when my gym shut down for good. Been trying to stay active, but it's hard without space for a home gym.

We are the same as a year ago and don't diet, we just eat healthy balanced meals, always have. Less running around means less hunger. Also, we don't exercise, like running or going to the gym etc. There are plenty of physical things to do around the house or take dogs for walks, just like before c vid. If you put some weight on and don't like it, then make minor adjustments to your life style when you do notice, Or maybe you'll like the newer you. Will never understand why people can't excercise unless it's paying for a gym membership or need a new year to make adjustments to their life style.

Well was maintaining then the holidays came upon us. And of course working on line has created more stress. So am up a few pounds but always working on it and trying to maintain. It is hard now that winter is here and of course with the covid restrictions. I guess this is the new norm as they say. I shall call it the covid yo-yo

hmmmm only two choices? Some of us eat the same things everyday so maybe that makes me boring i suppose ..I dont have to cram food in my mouth even when there is a crisis like now...I dont have to diet because there is a crisis ..I have the same food every day because looking like a slob is not an option for me..following the Doctors orders is essential to my health after losing my leg in an accident i need to keep my weight at a level that puts less stress on my good leg ..

I am really happy that I haven’t fallen victim to that. In fact, I am on a new path to walk as much as I can when the sidewalks are clear of ice and snow 😊

Stimulate my mind and let’s see what happens 😊.

I have been yo-yoing lately ( 1-4 pounds). BUT since the 1st of August I have dropped 25 pounds. I go to the YMCA and swim for an hour 4-5 days a week.

Need to cut down on the dairy and bread.

So nice to be insane; no one asks you to explain.

NOT really any significant lifestyle changes, except for being pretty much sexless, but noticed one day that most of my pants felt a little tight Got on the scale and found that I had gone from 145 (which had been steady for many years) and now showed 162 Took some stimulus check money from savings; went out and bought several new pairs of jeans Went from a 30/32 to a 34 in waist size I guess if I can blame that on COVID, then so be it

Only two options... i had to pick fatter, though I'm in better shape in many ways. I would be doing even better if I had access to my gym.

I wish I could choose both. Lol. I started off covid losing weight up until November. Then I backslid. I had lost 48 lbs only to regain 15. I haven’t had a chance to enact my New Years resolution but I’m not giving up!

My name is MrWrong and I approved this comment

Not voting since you don't provide many options, I've lost weight since this started. If you gained weight you might wanna start going for walks and changing you're diet. Obviously you've gotten lazy if you've gain weight. keep in shape gma!
