I get that too – I used to walk for hours with my dogs, and now I am puffing away if I just go up the stairs! Overeating has made me unfit, but every time that thought pops into my head, I remind myself of something good that has happened because I am eating less.
For example, I have had fewer headaches, and, very strangely, a post-op scar I have on my knee that always feels sore, as if it’s sunburnt, has stopped hurting, even if I touch it. I discovered that quite by accident last night and it was the last thing I expected! I wonder if it’s something to do with the inflammatory foods Gillian was talking about?
