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.

Never thought of the plateaus on the way up but you are so right.

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.

I was interested in your blog about fatty liver because my husband had non-alcoholic fatty liver. If it is caused by overeating, it can be reversed by diet, and my husband's was reversed. So this is yet another health problem which Sparking can help prevent or reverse. Unfortunately he has other problems probably related to over-eating and genetic susceptibility.

Nell, thanks for commenting on my blog, "It Bears Repeating! You Don't Have to Go Fast." I'm so sorry to hear that your husband had a stroke. That certainly makes it challenging to exercise. I would imagine that being married to you, his weight gains have been modest. "Life is full of adventures; we just don't get to pick all of them ourselves." When we are younger, we take too much for granted. But whatever happens, we have to deal with it; that is life.
