    I've been on the intermittent fasting. Quite happy. I'm going shopping in my own closet full of clothes I couldn't wear in a few years. And walking, walking, walking and more walking.

    I have upped my mileage too, up to 7 mile walks on my days off, but I don’t get my heart rate in that beast mode so I am just is maintaining not losing. Gyms don’t open until phase 3 here! I’d run but I often injure my back when I run, and that is a whole new problem.

    Looks like a great recipe though, thanks for sharing!

    We have always eaten healthy, so we haven’t had too many changes. I’ve been drinking more than pre-Covid but exercising even more than before and training abs pretty hard. Almost had the full 6-pack back before going off the rails a bit in Vegas

    Well I think the possibility of being less chunky got tossed out the window awhile ago; I just want to sleep and eat - yay cabin fever and depression! :goofy::cry::feedme::snore::feedme:

    Losing weight like crazy. About 0.2lbs per day since the pandemic started. I've been moving in the direction of working more and eating better but the shutdowns put it into overdrive. My daily sanity recharge is a 4 mile run or an 8 mile bike ride when I get home from work. On Sunday, I do 7 miles which is further than I've ever ran before in my entire life (I'm 38 now).

    I've not felt this good in a long time. I had no idea how bad being fat felt until I stopped being fat. You get used to being out of shape but when you come out of it...wow.

    I've lost 40 pounds over the past 4 years with 15 more to go. Since I'm a stress eater, when Covid hit I knew I had to double down on walking and tracking calories otherwise I would be toast. Happy to say I'm down 8 pounds and husband is down 4 pounds. It's not been easy. My one day "off" a year is my birthday which is in August. The other 364 days a year is "on plan".

    I lost weight during all of this...I stopped drinking alcohol cold turkey when everything shut down mid March, May I went on a diet I call, Eat Less, Move More and 2 weeks before I went to Vegas mid June, I stopped drinking coke...in the short time of Eat Less, Move More, I lost 25lbs....the coke was short lived and I knew that...went to Vegas expecting to put all the weight back on...I pigged out and went Jack and Coke crazy

    got home and was still 25lbs down

    when I start riding my bike in this 90+ high humidity weather, im sure ill knock some more off...and besides walking at work or in Vegas, no exercise

    Not to be THAT guy, but I’ve dropped 12lbs since April. I knew from prior experiences I can be a stress eater, so I’ve been focused on dealing with it in better ways. I’m just 9lbs from my high school graduation weight. (165)

    I started Intermittent Fasting and clean eating on February 24th. I was 5' 11" and weighed 170. I'm down to 136.5 now, so I'm just shy of a 35# weight loss. It was TOUGH to deny myself the snacking and the sweets and the alcohol during quarantine *but* it presented me with an opportunity to emerge from the shut-down as a different person, too, so I focused on that. It's been a great thing to be able to accomplish the weight loss and know I'm tougher than I thought it was. It's really a hell of a thing to drop 3 dress sizes while a pandemic rages around you. I finally found out I could believe in myself again and that was the best reward, even more than the weight loss. :p;):)

    Congratulations, that's some going!

    I haven't weighed myself since lockdown started, and not going to until I start back in the gym when they open at the end of this month.

    I think I'll probably find your 35lbs on my scales when I weigh myself before I do, though :haha:

    Gah, quarantine has done a number on me, weight-wise. Have got the portions under control and am starting IF soon - now just need to factor in some exercise. I usually swim and take dance classes - missing them terribly!

    At least I've got ages to tone up before Vegas. :rolleyes:
     
    Back to Vegas at last!

    I started out bad, but I then I told myself I can come out of this fatter or healthier, and I chose healthier. Luckily I already had a lot of equipment at home, so I started upping my exercise (I mean I got nothing but time, right?) and staying mindful of my eating. I'm on a good track now, feel better than I have in years.

    Started Keto the day after the 2019 super bowl. Along the way I dropped 65 pounds, but over the last few months I’ve yo-yo’d and I’m currently still down 60. The working from home was a struggle because its extremely easy for me to keep with the intermittent fasting when I’m completely busy at the office. When your refrigerator is that close, will power sometimes goes out the door. Props to everyone who is fighting the good fight, it’s not easy. We can do this! :thumbsup:
