Grateful to be At Goal..Again

I lost 33 pounds in 1970 on the old old old Weight Watchers Plan, arriving at my doctor selected goal of 114 in 5 months. Had a few years at an even lower weight due to illness, then got back up to goal and stayed there until the menopause 6 snuck in from the air. (Never from Cheetos or Reeses!) Got serious, lost the 6, and am keeping it off, and then another 9 pounds.

Nell, thank you for commenting on my blog, "My Darling Husband - Diet Saboteur". For Valentine's Day, DH used to buy me expensive chocolate truffles from a chocolatier across town; he would buy a 2-pound box. Truffles happen to be on my Controlled Substances list. Back in the 80s I learned to put the box in the refrigerator, and if I wanted one, I would remove one and let it come to room temperature for 20 minutes before I would eat it. If I wanted another, I would go through the entire procedure again, providing me lots of time to think about the decision to put it into my mouth. Last year I don't think I had a yen for the truffles at all, so DH started wolfing down the truffles around July. This year he didn't buy a box at all. His instincts haven't changed, though. When he returns from a hunting trip, he still thinks it a good idea to bring back huge bags of Twizzlers or surprise me with popsicles. Fortunately, last time he asked me about it, and I said, "Have you noticed I am not eating those any more? I'm filling nutritional holes instead, and sugar isn't something I need to eat." My food extravagances have been extra meat or guacamole.
