At 5'10", 165 to 168 is about perfect for me. In 2019, I dropped down to 162 - and even though it was supposed to be a worthwhile BMI - it felt too light. And I had to have the willpower of a monk, abstain from any alcohol or dessert temptations, and workout regularly to maintain it.We have the same body type is suspect. I'm 5'11" and my body used to want to stay at 187lbs. I was there are the beginning of the pandemic hoping like you to get to 170. I'm 200 right now.
I was around 168, pre-pandemic. I'm likely 178 now. My working out has declined; I've been more stationary throughout the day; I've indulged more in alcohol and sweets. Hell, I've just snacked more during the workday, probably from a combination of boredom and stress.
I know that probably sounds like a First World problem - bitching about a 16 lb variation over 2 years. But when you hit a weight floor and gradually drift back up (too much, to me) it's the same disheartening feeling.
