Lockdown - Have You Gained Weight?

Since it started i've put on over a stone.
Causes : Less activity due to not working (on furlough)....
Eating too much crap. Housemates baking. Drinking a bit more.

Quite the opposite. Started a new year's resolution in January to get to a healthy weight.
Im 6ft 2" guy and I weighed 96kg. I'm down to 79kg now. Still having treats, I have 1 takeaway a week usually on Saturday.
Just eating healthy and cut out 90% of snacks. On average i was losing 1kg a week or so.
While I was already pursuing weight before lockdown, I think the lockdown has actually helped me stay on track. No meeting up with mates to go drinking has definitely been the biggest help.

No more gym in the mornings and piles of overtime equals weight gain and low morale. Haven't had a day off since last year either. Tired, over worked and missing the gym.

Lost half a stone.
Less work meant more flexibility around exercise time and the weather's been great.

Eating out of boredom has been a major one for me!

I put on about 1kg. I find it almost impossible to loose even a bit of weight so there is a good chance it will be kept. It's probably because of higher alcohol consumption and a lot of bbquing. I suspect my muscle mass increased so its not all bad.

Maintained. That's not what I wanted, because I've been consistently losing weight for a few years and I'm very close to my goal weight.

But I'm happy with a maintain. I was eating far more while off work, and exercising a lot less

Was 94kg when it began but I've pulled it back to 90-91kg thanks to a lot of online core work and cycling/turbo sessions.


Would be even less only for the way we're splurging at the weekends.

No. I've lost 3 pounds (converting back to imperial as Irish people tend to refer to height, weight, and quantities of alcohol consumed in those measurements). I'm 6' 2" and 194 lbs.

I'm very moderate in my eating and drinking habits, and don't enjoy the feeling of being uncomfortably full or drunk. I also have a Peloton bike in my apartment, and do some moderate weight work to compliment my cardio routine.

Lost exactly 7kg since about two weeks before the lockdown started. Eating less and doing a bit more exercise, but I can't claim it's anything too hectic. But obviously the ad is right and every little helps.

Put on weight when the routine got shaken up. Used to run or cycle to work most days but some days don't get more than 2000 steps

However I'm coming back now as I'm making sure to run at lunchtime and have cleared out the garage for a home gym

Put on about a stone - no gym, driving everywhere, eating too much crap out of boredom.

There's going to be a lot of people with a lot of work to do when this is all over I reckon.

I’m wearing a pair of jeans that haven’t fitted me in a year. Without a belt they are falling off me.
