On the first day after I sprained my ankle. I was lucky enough to have my daughter to keep me fed all day, but it gave me insight into her diet during this year when she was living alone, with her pay at her airline job cut because of Covid, and her work boring because there’s not a lot to do.
Both DH and I had weight problems in middle age, but I seem to have got away without long term health effects, through pure luck and maybe better choice of ancestors. There are a lot of serious conditions and shorter lives on his side so I was really anxious that DD should eat healthy food after moving in with us. We haven’t been eating less, but plenty of fruit and vegetables and meat. She said it’s reduced her craving for sweet snacks.
I first noticed a change in shape even though her weight stayed the same - an inch off the waist. I went to meet her at the station today and she looked slim. She’s thrilled to find she’s just lost more than a kilo. My weight has gone up a kilo because stress from DH’s op has lessened! Oh well!
