OMG, I can SO relate! Had been on over a two-year streak for exercise, was at one of my lowest weights until I had surgery last July & WHAMMO! I was 'off my feed,' so to speak, for almost two months. Needless to say, within a few months I gained about 15# back & 3 mos. after surgery, had a TIA (mild stroke), which only affects my memory a bit. Since both my sister & I have both had them--& she's had numerous ones--we laugh when we're trying to think of a word, or name of a film/actor or try to remember something. I used to get impatient with her --thank goodness since she lives in TX & I live in IL, so she couldn't see my face as I got annoyed while I waited for her to come up with something!
But regardless of what's going on, I know sugar is not good for me; & like most of us, we're not usually satisfied with 'just a little,' which is why I try to eliminate virtually all, except for maybe 1 or 2 special treats a month.
Thanks for sharing some history, &
Crystal Lake, IL
