It's kind of tough for us oldsters when our metabolism slows down. I always thought that was a myth, but it's not. I don't eat any more now than I did twenty years ago or forty years ago. But now it sticks and my weight goes up. I've never had to watch my weight before and it's a real pain to have to do so. Never eat dessert. Never eat snacks. Never have seconds. Only eat two meals a day. I can lose weight on one meal a day, but with two a day I gain weight. I have to somehow do only 1 1/2 meals a day. That should do it. Another problem is that I've taken up cooking in my retirement and enjoy it vastly! I make such damned tasty things! Makes it all the harder. Oh well. Excelsior, as they used to say.
