Yeah. Maybe two to three times a week but it does make me hungry and I can't do it if I haven't eaten because I feel too faint. But I'm scared of becoming skinnyfat if I stopped exercising. It makes restricting harder and I have to think hard about how to time my eating with exercise.

I try, but I'm usually good at staying a track for only a week at most, and then I stop for a few weeks and then continue the cycle again and again

I'm too lazy for that. That's how I got so obese in the first place lol. Besides low restricting zaps all the energy out of me.

I used to pace like mad a few years ago but this relapse im not as much, particularly because of quarantine.. my sibling lives with me now and exercising in their proximity would probably set off alarm bells

Yes and no. I really should more. I started doing dance and sometimes do yoga. I try to do workouts on YouTube but I struggle to finish workouts that aren’t in person because I give up so easily. It’s so much easier with the social pressure—I’d be so embarrassed to leave class early and make a scene. I’m hoping I can go to more classes in person soon once COVID is done because I need to work out more.

I really, really struggle to exercise. Just at work I'll do 10,000-13,000 steps every shift, and after a long demanding day on my feet I'm always exhausted. I try to exercise on my days off, but it doesn't always happen.

Hahahaaa.... not really. I have Lyme Disease which results in chronic fatigue and joint/muscle pain so exercising is really hard for me. I try to walk when I can. But that’s about it.

yeah, I actually have begun to enjoy it and work for more of a burn.
I do cardio, hiit, or yoga in my room for an hr and then walk for 1-2hrs
not much but I definitely feel stronger and have more energy
