Coronavirus Work-life

Been losing weight since the start of covid. Not a lot but around 1% of my total weight despite eating/snacking constantly (think ice cream, cheese cake). Anyone in the same situation? Lol

... 1%. Isn’t that just normal weight fluctuation?

This is not to make anyone feel bad but even tho many of us struggle with weight gain, lots of us have problem with maintaining a good BMI! Neither is good. Actually when I really weigh myself today, I have lost 3% of my weight. I'm petite size, usually <110pounds so any weight loss is bad for me. But I do hope I'm just losing muscles and gaining fat lol

Weird flex. Please stop. Everyone I know is gaining weight. This is the most weight I’ve ever been outside of my standard since growth in puberty.

Curious if consultants are still able to make the 25-30% compensation jumps moving firms within consulting given covid and layoff situation. Not 80k to 100k jumps but on the higher end like 150k - 185k jumps. Thanks in advance

What are the best cities to be based out of for consulting? My opinion is ATL for the airport (pre covid) and LCOL. Have an itch to move soon though (maybe 1-2 yrs from now, when we’re hopefully flying again). Is there a better US city for consulting?
