You may have been cutting your calories too much too quickly.  Hard to say without knowing more.  

I peaked around 230 lbs years ago and then got down to 180.  Have been a little lax and rebounded to 190, and tend to fluctuate within a few pounds of that number.  I had the best success cutting down on the junk/refined stuff and starting out slightly under caloric maintenance and gradually backing off from there without ever going too low.  Also personal preference was to fit the meals into about an 8-10 hour window, though caution is warranted on that part for anyone who is a known diabetic.

I was on the South Beach diet while working midnights and sleeping all day. It was a summer long fast essentially, and it worked I lost 55 lb from May to Late August, but because it wasn't sustainable in college I put it back on.

This was at the start of covid.  I’m down 21 now but still categorically near obesity at 29 BMI, which is a stupid measure but the only universal one. 

so you weren't diagnosed as obese by your doctor, you just decided that since you had more free time, because you are working from home, you'd lose weight. and now you feel free to bash overweight people because you've lost 21 pounds. LOL.

You're just jealous that we're not talking about South Paradise... I mean South Carolina.  Have y'all eradicated covid yet?

I was hoping certain people (there are two or three in particular) wouldn't discover this thread was here. Because these same folks helped ruin all the other coronavirus threads on here, smh  This is the last one standing! C'mon people...

I mean I can’t imagine anyone living in a Midwestern city knocking Charleston, SC. I literally do live in a paradise haha, it’s one of the top vacation and retirement places in America for a reason.

Do bring up a good point though. Why is spread so bad up in the Midwest? Honestly all these restrictions in the North, yet the spread is so much worse?

Personal opinion, it’s all private gatherings and work. The more you take away from public options, the more people resort to cookouts and movie nights with friends. Between that and the abundance of factories and distribution centers, it’s going to lead to higher spread

this is why:

Most Midwestern states have Republican governors who lifted lockdown orders early in the pandemic and have refused to reimpose restrictions even after caseloads surpassed their early-pandemic peaks. Missouri Gov. Mike Parson resisted imposing lockdown, then reopened businesses in early May — then tested positive for COVID-19 in September. South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem never issued a lockdown order and even invited residents of lockdown states to visit her own. 

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, did impose a lockdown order in April, but the state Supreme Court struck it down a few weeks later. Evers tried imposing limits on public gatherings and capping bar and restaurant capacity, but a district court stayed the order after a challenge from business owners and pro-life groups.

Midwestern governors have also allowed large events, including the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (which is now linked to a regional outbreak). Donald Trump has also organized campaign rallies in Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan and Iowa. A Center for American Progress analysis found that roughly half of these rallies led to county-level COVID-19 outbreaks.

I've been into bodybuilding and fitness for 6 years. Let myself go after getting married for a few years and decided to change that.

You actually don't need to work out at all to lose weight. Its a very simple equation. Calculate your maintenance calories to maintain your current weight and subtract however amount of calories you need to from that to start losing weight. It's calories in vs calories out.

This calculator will tell you how many calories you need to eat to maintain your current weight, lose weight, or gain weight.

Obviously exercise helps, but you honestly don't need it. Diet is by far the most important aspect of losing weight.

Yep, portion size and exercise is the key to weight loss. Don't need any fads or nonsense.

What’s hard to understand here? 
 

Trying to be healthier and exercising more benefits both physically and mentally to combat the effects of covid. 
 

People simply have more time at home, and have been adjusting whether they work from home or not. 
 

There’s a lot of cases about people being bored at home and start day drinking. Being stressed etc. 

If one wants to bike ride more, get in tone more by doing push ups at home etc, AND it helps lower the chances of a bad covid fallout in ANY degree...

Its a win win. 
 

Yes, there’s people who don’t have time or the energy. True.
 

But there’s a lot that do. And it’s widely documented there’s a lot of people having difficulty finding what to do with themselves being at home always. 
 

Jumping to accuse people of fat shaming or calling them “middle class white dude” is uncalled for. And not “facts”.

It is a stressful time, and people coming in gleefully saying just exercise come off as tone deaf. There are a lot of people who are struggling to stay upright right now.

lots of people are not working from home. it's wrong to act as if everyone now has loads of free time--millions of Americans simply do not.

and "middle class white dude" is not an insult. good grief.

Kind of scary. A tight end for the bills. We don't know the side effects of Covid after it goes away fully. This is why I do not want to get covid. The possible long term effects, however rare they are.

 

Same issue that Eduardo Rodriguez had for the Red Sox. Not good :(

Doctors say CDC should warn people the side effects from Covid vaccine shots won't be 'a walk in the park'

KEY POINTS 
  • The CDC must be transparent about the side effects people may experience after getting their first shot of a coronavirus vaccine, doctors urged during a meeting Monday with CDC advisors.
  • Dr. Sandra Fryhofer said that both Pfizer's and Moderna's Covid-19 vaccines require two doses and she worries whether her patients will come back for a second dose because of potentially unpleasant side effects after the first shot.
  • Both companies acknowledged that their vaccines could induce side effects that are similar to symptoms associated with mild Covid-19, such as muscle pain, chills and headache.

climate has some factor in it. Midwest typically experiences worse flu seasons than other warmer places. At least here in michigan the % of active covid cases in hospitals compared to total hospitalizations has continued to decline even though the total number of current covid hospitalizations has increased

I also agree that most of the spread has been from work and private gatherings. would also add schools into that as well. shutting down restaurants, gyms, salons, etc isn't going to make much of a difference imo.

I don't know how much of a problem this will be early on (when higher risk individuals are vaccinated), but if a healthy 25 year old goes to get vaccinated in spring and experiences some side effects, you have to wonder if some of them won't bother to return for round 2.

I wonder if efficacy was measured with just one shot longer term. Obviously the booster helps or else it wouldn’t be part of it. 
 

at that point the ball is on the 20.  Gotta just do it.

America is a land of excess.  It’s also a land of overworking.  These things lead to a lot of obesity and health problems.  It is simple to lose weight but it is not easy especially for someone who is poor or uneducated.   I lost 55 pounds since March but I have a lot of luxury and privilege that others don’t.  We need to be a healthier nation but that doesn’t mean we can’t try to take care of everyone with this current pandemic.  Also Charleston is cool but only from October through March
