Open Thread: Covid 19…pounds?

Although the end (hopefully) to lockdown is almost in sight for some of us, once we emerge we’re going to find that living in pajama bottoms disguised all the weight we’ve gained by our limited activity (and unlimited fridge access).

Personally, I was happy to just hold the line, maybe lose a pound or two. Every ounce went kicking and screaming every step of the way, even with fruit for dinner and 10,000 steps a day (then my hip went out, dammit, so who knows what will happen now.)

So how did you do?  Did you gain weight? Did you lose weight – and if so, how?  What diet or exercise tips worked for you?  What didn’t? Did you use any technology like Fitbit? Did you take any Senior Planet Fitness classes?  Let us know in the comments!
