I always like to get the bad news out of the way first. One reason I am back down to 170 today is that I had a Digestive Episode yesterday after I had one too many of my daughter's fabulous cookies at lunch. I lack a gallbladder and am prone to biliary stones and I'm not liking how things are trending right now. But, anyway, I'm better today after being wary of food for the rest of the day and having nothing beyond an irreproachable dinner of roast chicken, broccoli and salad. I also went to ZUMBA! which was GREAT. I think the 5K had an interval training effect because I was full of steam. The other good news is that my FBS was 95 yesterday (normal is anything under 100. I'm trying to get out of the prediabetic range which is 100-125.) I'll take that.
I took my measurements this morning, to wit:
This compares to back in May:
Thigh, a mighty 28
I seem to be somewhat less pear-shaped. Man, I wish I'd known what to do for that when I was back in my 20s. Waist to hip ratio is .72 and BMI is 25.8.
It's weird because I've reached my first goal-- which always seemed so attainable, and yet so far away. As in trying for 18 years without much success. My plan at the moment is to hold the line until January 1, which will put me 1 lb under my hot 100 pledge. Then I will reassess in the new year, but I think it would be nice, assuming my body will cooperate, to slowly release another 10-15 pounds and see what that does for my blood sugar.
A moment here to take notice of The Road Curves Ahead and 266 their fantastic progress this year. Cheers, ladies!
