Preach sister! I’ve been on hormones for over 30 years (to control endometriosis) and they definitely cause you to gain weight. Add that on top of my entire childhood and some of my adulthood, being poor and so having to eat the basic American poverty diet: lots of cheap carbs “flavored” with plenty of salt, sugar, hydrogenated fats and other artificial crap. And now, I’m about to turn 46…so I’ve committed the two worst sins imaginable: existing while both FAT and OLD! I sure have a lot of nerve.
