Social Distancing Is Difficult On Weight Watchers

In this time of social distancing, children are frequently exploring the fridge, and devouring cookies. Not only is it difficult to replenish the supplies, but the rapid weight gain is also worrisome, especially in weight watchers, who had managed to lose some and were struggling to lose some more.

During the weight loss process, there comes a plateau when the weighing scale does not budge. It is the time taken to stabilize the body's metabolism at the current weight and the new diet. Don't give up. I am on that stage for more than a year.
