-12 lbs. you’re doing quarantine wrong. I’m on a salad with beans (black, red, pinto, etc.) diet. I throw in an egg or tuna if i need extra protein. Smoothie for breakfast. 2 meals a day. It’s simple and the pounds fly off

25lbs lol. Unfortunately I got on some meds right before the quarantine and those drugs f up my metabolism. I stopped the meds a month ago and I’ve lost about 10lbs since then. Aiming to lose another 7 lbs or so. I was borderline underweight before quarantine . I’m now standard (BMI 22)

M3, no travel so no eating out every night and no drinking. Made it easier to stick to healthy eating. No change in exercise, just diet.

+16 as of yesterday, averaging out to 1 lb per week. My primary form of exercise is competitive swimming and I abruptly went from 5 practices a week to 0 practices a week while my appetite didn't adjust till just a week or two ago. I was road cycling 2-3 times per week after I got done working at 4:00-4:30 (I'm industry these days), but the brutal heat this past month or so really put a crimp on that, and it's a quite poor substitute for the caloric burn of competitive swimming, anyways. I know it'll come off quicker than I gained it once swimming starts back up, but it's still pretty bad.

I’m looking to leave PA for industry. I stuck it out for 4 years and am just sick of the hours. Plus I am outraged at how my firm has handled this COVID-19 crisis. I really want to find something that allows me to spend my evenings and weekends with my family, and that hopefully offers some flexibility. Remote work is definitely an option. Should I utilize a recruiter to help me find something? Any recommendations?
