For the week ending 6 April 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, YES for weighing less than DH.
The comfort eating hazards have affected DH the most even though he has been much more physically active than I have. I attribute this to the fact than I cannot eat salty, oily, or sticky snacks while sewing masks to donate to the local hospitals and others in essential jobs. So my primary comfort foods are apple slices, carrots, and GF tortillas with cream cheese. OK, that last one is a bit hazardous but I am trying to stretch out both the cream cheese and the tortillas due to intermittent shortages of cream cheese and GF tortillas. I cannot get my favorite GF tortillas as those were purchased at a farmers market that is now closed. I have yet to find a recipe for them that works for me. At least one brand at a local store is ok and doesn't give me intestinal issues if I don't eat more than one a day.
Also, I never got around to baking my birthday GF butterscotch brownies. Not enough time to make it high enough on the essential activities list! Probably a good thing as that would probably add 6 pounds.
I am afraid to get on the scale. I am already noticing that I've lost some muscle tone and strength while not swimming and walking less, even though I do get out to walk some days. Those days completely at home are hard on the body but good for not catching the virus.
For the week ending 12 April 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, YES for weighing less than DH (but not by much).
I have gained bach all the weight that I lost this year and now weigh what I did in early December. However, my weight is still staying within a 9 pound window over the last six months. Considering that the past 12 months covered an 18 pound range and this past six months is the lower half of that, I am happy. My eating is balanced and I know that I am not getting enough exercise to cover the extra desserts. However, eating ice cream in the evening with DH is definitely worth it. So is being able to donate masks to the Navajo and Tohono O'odham Nations. So, sewing and sharing more time with DH is staying on my schedule. But I will try to get more exercise as well.
For the week ending 25 May 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, YES for weighing less than DH. (If it was a pound in the last day then the answer would be YES. However, remembering to take my diuretic after forgetting it one day doesn't count! )
For the week ending 8 June 2020: NO by the scale, NO by the trend line, NO for weighing less than DH. Posting a couple days late but with info for Monday.
I have gained, due to isolation for COVID, +19 pounds. My youngest sister has changed her weight, due to isolation for COVID, -19 pounds. I have made significant diet and exercise changes to aim for at least -19 to offset my +19.
