Lost around 3-5 lbs. I eat not great but I used exercise as a coping mechanism. Plus I'm a social drinker and since I'm not socializing I am not drinking as much.

Same weight, but fitter. Exercise of some sort every day. Sometimes I think I should have done more and tried to get really fit. But then I cut myself some slack and realize I’m old and no one cares anyway so as long as I feel good it’s all good.

I think it's interesting that some of us gained weight, and some of us lost weight. I remember saying in the beginning of the sheltering in place order that since I won't have a commute and have access to my home gym, I will work out and become more fit... Funny how the total opposite is the actual case.
