Thank you for actually understanding my post

You are very welcome! I have become quite distant to this site due to the fact people tend to not try to understand and just make judgment's.

Dont worry , I'm just now breaking a month long plateau. What I'm doing that helps is walking outside around the neighborhood twice a day to get into shape . And I check my weight twice a day as well but I'm not crazy over the scale.

I've upped my walking to twice a day as well. The dogs absolutely love me now. But checking your weight twice a day? If that's what works for you ok, but watch out for the mind games we can start to play with ourselves.

Still trying to get my mind around the TP hoarding. This is not an illness that gives people the uncontrollable runs.

Not for anything but I have found my appetite return precisely at the time when stress eating is prevalent. I’m still eating well but do feel more hunger...not sure if it is head hunger or real.

I won’t eat chips nor sweets but I have had wine which I was not partaking in prior to covid19.

I also work in healthcare (non clinical) so I can’t go escape it.

Be well all!

Preach!

Toilet paper still out of stock this morning!

People also seemed to be more tensed today than yesterday. There were also more people at the grocery store this morning, though it wasn't really crowded. More like the usual amount of people you would expect at a store this size. I guess this is because of the weekend coming up. Or there are some news I haven't heard of so far.

Yes, it stinks but it's just the way it is for us.

Being isolated is depressing and when you get depressed it's really hard to be disciplined and make a lot of effort. Is anyone in the same boat?

I am in the same boat. I have been diagnosed with Major Depression Disorder with reoccurring episodes. It's a lifelong struggle for me. I also share a fear of gaining weight during this time. My gym is closed and it's hard for me to go on walks for longer than 15 minutes due to chronic back pain. I am just doing the best I can and trying to stay away from carbs.

I also have depression and chronic back pain. My doctor convinced me to try Pilates for the back pain. If that's something you might want to try, there are a lot of free Zoom classes right now.

Hi and yes I completely feel you! I have been grazing and my weight is climbing by the day! I am going to try online discussion groups for my anxiety tied to the uncertainty at this time rather than self soothe with food. As an emotional eater I seem to try to feel
Better with food and end up feeling worse. You’re not alone! Come back often and get your fears out- maybe write in a notebook just to get them out of your mind so you can focus on taking healthy care of yourself. That is what I am doing and it seems to be working. Stay strong and focus! You can do this!

It's definitely a luxury to have enough space (hopefully a garden) and alone time these days.
