Gayle King is opening up to her fans about gaining weight over the last couple of months amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“CRISIS! The weight struggle is real! fatter than I’ve been in long time .. & scared to get a pedicure (big sigh),” the CBS This Morning anchor shared on Instagram Saturday, alongside a slideshow of photos showing herself on a scale.

At the start of her slideshow, King, 65, weighed-in at 159.2 lbs. Her most recent weigh-in was at 172.2 lbs.

“Swipe left for the way we were …ideal weight says Dr is 163… not happening anytime soon .. blaming corona quarantine & Halloween candy corns I just bought! Make it stop!” the mom of two added.

King is not the only one experiencing some weight gain amid social distancing and gym closures across the country. “A. You have pretty feet. B. I’m in the same boat. Can’t stop eating ice cream,” pal and Bravo host Andy Cohen commented on King’s post.

In truth, many have been facing the added stress of weight gain and inability to workout throughout the last several months, even with at-home exercise programs and videos. However, Christy Harrison, a nutrition therapist, encourages people not to fear the few added pounds.

2020 has been such a hard year for all of us that we have to give ourselves a break, but at the same time health is wealth especially during the pandemic and a little exercise can go a long way.
