Pandemic throws lives - and waistlines - into flux

Lauren Wire, a 32-year-old publicist who lives in Manhattan, poses for a portrait before a fitness class Wednesday, July 15, 2020, in New York. Many Americans are changing clothing sizes depending on how they spent their time sheltering at home. Wire gained back 12 of the 50 pounds she lost leading up to the pandemic because she was ordering in a lot from restaurants and partaking in social distance cocktails with friends. She says she bought new shorts and swimwear when she gained the weight but now she's starting to shed pounds again by biking outside. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II)
