Check out this article from HealthDay Reporter via Yahoo News. Apparently the more excess weight a woman who is past menopause carries, the worse her memory is. Just one more reason to get the weight off. Looks like I have a few years yet before this particular side effect hits. Because 39 years ago today my mother gave birth to a baby with such chubby cheeks that all the orderlies in the hospital called her "Chipmunk", and that would be me!
And by the way, I'm closing in on one month sugar-free. I've only lost a few pounds but I still feel so much better; it's totally worth it.
Have a fab day, everybody.
