Did you remember to set your clocks back? I forgot. (Sigh.) I decided to move my weigh-in up a day, to better accomodate Allan (blog: Almost Gastric Bypass), so it is one lesss thing for him to do on a busy Monday morning. Here are my results, on this last official morning of the DDDY (Double Dog Dare You) two-week challenge:
Weight: 263 lbs ... down three more pounds this week!
My BMI is now in the 42s, sliding ever so much closer to the magic 39.9 (leaving morbid obesity).
The right sidebar, scrolling down, will show you my current measurements and BMI number. At the very bottom of my blog, you can see my progress tickers, both overall, and for this current mini-goal. I am just shy of the halfway point on this current mini-goal!
I've lost another inch from my waist, but the hips are slow to give up their horde. You'd think the waist and hips would shrink at the same rate. Still, no complaints from me! I'll take that 1/4" ... my hips are down 7" from last December. If I do that again, in 2011, I'll have my college weight back.
As my signature indicates, I am now just a few pounds shy of the halfway point on my "Lose 60 lbs. in one year" challenge. The blue box (right sidebar) tells you how many days remain on that challenge, still plenty of time to make it happen.
I've managed to exercise three times last week - a first, since graduating all those decades ago. I'm going to try to do that again. Consistency is important in exercise, just as it is in diet. I may not be burning mega-calories on my mile walk, but I'm strengthening muscles and my cardiovascular system, and bumping up my metabolism.

Day 110 and staying focused on improved health. My doctor wants to see me again in January, to reassess how I'm doing, and to (perhaps??!!) reduce some medications! I've already been able to completely eliminate the cholesterol meds. Perhaps, after the mid-January blood draw, I can see further improvements.
