: The experience of feeling sure one has already experienced a situation

Deja Vu.   I’m feeling sure I’ve been 260 pounds before.  Seems like it was just last week, actually.

“Thbbft!”  As Bill would say.

It was not, however, a gain.  For which I should be pleased.  Here’s something more about which to be pleased.  About two weeks ago, I remembered we had a nearly-full bottle of B-Complex vitamins hanging out in the kitchen that neither of us had been taking, for no particular reason.  I read somewhere that B’s are really good for you, so I thought, what the heck, I’ll give ’em a shot, at least until the bottle’s gone.

Here’s the thing – I feel better.  And the only thing really different in my routine is the B vitamins.  I can’t tell you exactly what I mean by “better.”  Maybe more alert?  A little more energized?  I don’t know.  Just better.  I’ll let you know how it goes from here.  For now, however, I highly recommend you go get a bottle of B-Complex vitamins.

On the “hey, this is really awesome” front, Sprightly Daughter Number Three is now (pauses to knock wood) sleeping all night.  And (at least until the next full moon) the other two are as well.  The Lovely Wife and I actually slept more than six hours three times this week.  It’s too soon to tell, but this article at WebMD says that might help me kick the weight loss routine into a higher gear.  On the scale from good to bad, that would be good.

Thanks for reading.  Remember, those cool little buttons below the story?  They help you share Skipping Dessert with all your social media best pals.  I’m just sayin’.

    Ummm…. Maybe you “feel better” because you are getting more sleep? Not that I don’t see the merit in taking certain supplements, but you stated that nothing else was different in your routine. Getting more sleep is DEFINITELY different!

    Ahhhh, but the better sleep happened before a few days after the “better.” You’re jumpin’ the gun on Monday’s reading assignment about how important sleeping is to overall health … and about how tough it is (for most people) to get it.
