Well, I have officially lost count of how many times I've lost and gained the same 40-50 lbs. I swore that I would not spend the rest of my life worrying about every bit of stuff that goes in my mouth or about my weight, as long as I am healthy. But the fact of the matter is that it's getting hard to reach my hiney and my stomach has gotten so large that it prevents me from crossing my legs. So, it's starting to physically debilitate me and it's time to put the brakes on again.
It's 12:44 and so far so good. I am obsessing on candy, I'm a true sugar addict. Today I also called a counselor whom I'll see starting next Monday. I know that it just can't be good to be losing and gaining these huge amounts of weight, and I've been on this cycle for about 20 years.
I'm 52 and just started full blown menopause about 3 months ago. The hot flashes are killer. And I heard that you gain more weight in your abdomen once you're in menopause. I don't know where the **** it would go, I have no lap as it is anymore!
