You are not alone. Excess weight is always a concern for doctors. Obesity can put people at heightened risk for type 2 diabetes, hypertension and a number of other health issues, according tothe CDC. But during the pandemic, obesity is an even greater concern, as it’s among the underlying conditions that can put you at a higher risk of developing a more severe case of COVID-19.
Don’t dwell on the last months or get angry about weight gain or blame yourself but instead think about what caused you to lose your ability to exercise or eat healthy.
