Yes..even more so at 51! Really after age 45 seems to be the magic numbe for me! I stick to my small meals..but during the holidays I added my late night snack of 1 cup of peppermint ice cream. One cup! You would have thought it was a whole quart the way that my body metabolized the sugar from ONE CUP! Yea, I know..it comes with age..now it will take 14 days to lose the extra 6 pounds that I gained in 4 days! It is just not fair! I hardly eat (small meaningful meals) and I work out more than anybody I know and the weight just piles on overnight! That's ok...at least I can continue with the same New Year's Resolution as I've had from past years!
