    Have you gone back to working in your office? Do you have strategies planned for avoiding the stress snacking?
    Yes, I have been back in the office for over a year now. When I had resigned myself that I was going to be a "fat guy", I just ate anything and everything. Now that I have my health and fitness back I can't imagine eating whatever I want! I'm to grateful to be were I am to get that way again!

    I should also mention tat the weight loss got me off all blood pressure and cholesterol meds!

    Hi, I'm new here and here's my story.
    Because of Covid-19 I, like many, started working from home. Instead of snacking at the office all day and stopping for a pre-dinner meal on the way home, I wasn't able to do all that! My wife does a lot of the food shopping and she doesn't eat much "junk" food so we don't have it in the house. So without all the snacking next thing I know, I've lost 20 lbs! I saw this as a blessing and I ran with it. Out of boredom I started riding our exercise bike in the basement and the weight just keep coming off! Once the Parks opened up again we were able to start taking some nice walks. As the weight came off I found it was much easier to walk further and further. Now I'm into running 5K's!

    While I didn't think to take before and after photos, I did manage to put together this comparison:


    I have gone from 239 lbs down to my current 154 lbs for an 85 pound loss!

    great job!!

    Thank you all for the kind words! Now the challenge will be to keep it off!

    Just keep doing what you have been doing. If you keep losing weight and don't want to, just add a more food a little at a time till it levels off. Awesome job!!! Thanks for sharing your inspiring story!!
