Many of you (over a certain age, that is) recognize the words from that old song. This is not about the song, this is about my eating!! It dawned on me this morning that it was about this time last year that I started slipping. Cooler weather edging me towards those richer, warming foods. HALLOWEEN CANDY. I've been eating it every night after supper. At first it was just a couple of Tootsie Rolls. Then it was several plus a mini package of Twizzlers. Thus began my downhill slide. With my new medications I've been taking for a couple of months, my glucose has been fine so - - what the heck - -I'll just keep on eating. In the past few weeks, I've had fries twice, rice a few times,a "regular" meal(meaning not very low, calorie, low fat) sometimes twice a day. Upshot is, I was several pounds higher when I weighed this morning. You'd think that, at my advanced age, I would have learned something about myself. But here I am again, same old song, same time of year, same old bad habits creeping back into my life, I am so angry with myself.
Like little Sarah has picked up from one of her teachers at day. One hand on hip, other finger pointing at you, stern look on her sweet face, she says "Stop it! Just, stop it!!"
