I feel like a beached whale after putting on weight while working from home

DEAR DEIDRE:  MY waistline has expanded while working from home during the pandemic.

I have enjoyed staying in, living in leisurewear.

I’m so fat I am beginning to waddle.

I catch my reflection in the mirror and am horrified at what I see. I’m a woman of 24.

I seem to have lost my mojo in life. I feel like a beached whale.

I just can’t seem to get into the zone to make a conscious effort to do anything about it.

I can’t fit into any of my work trousers.

DEIDRE SAYS: You are not alone in this.

Anxiety and stress levels are high and some of us turn to food or alcohol to help us cope – though, of course, that tends to add to our worries in the long term.

Having a regular time-table and eating plan written down really helps.

Then you don’t have to keep finding the willpower to make fresh decisions, just enough to stick to your routine.

My e-leaflet End Weight Worries will help. But do build fresh air and exercise into your routine. They are vital.
