Covid weight gain

Has anyone else gained weight since this covid nonsense started? I'm a stress eater and this new uncharted territory has destroyed my diet. Luckily, I can still fit my clothes but the scale keeps lying on me! ­čśé

I've been wondering the same thing, @NurseBlaq.

I've actually lost some weight. And, I'm a stress eater, too. But, I've been choosing healthier foods and eating out very very rarely.

I've been cooking more but it's the brownies and M&Ms. People drink and smoke, my vice is brownies and M&Ms. I think I'm addicted. There has to be a brownies anon somewhere.

Oh, just reading the word, "brownies" ... really, ANY chocolate ... just makes my mouth water. LOL!

And, yes, the addiction is real. But, somehow with COVID, I've been able to curve that addiction.

I can't. The brownies keep calling me. ­čĄú
