I had a stroke in March 2012 at age 47. Prior to that, I had spent three years regaining my eyesight after the lenses in both eyes detached, 1.5 years apart. During that time, my mother passed away suddenly.
To say the past few years have been streesful is an understatement. Just before my eye trouble, I had been successfully attending Weight Watcher's and had lost 21 pounds. I was only 6 lbs from my goal weight.
Well, as you can tell my the topic title, the weight came back on PLUS some. Since my stroke, my #1 priority has been following therapy and getting better.
Two days ago was my 1 year post stroke anniversary and I have decided to say "Goodbye" to the excess weight! We successfully were able to get my insurance company to cover the cost of a Walk-Aid for me, and I am good to go!
Anyone else dealing with weight gain after their stroke??
