It’s been a while and I’ve heard from a number of my gentle readers that they are anxious to hear from me and learn of my progress, so here you go:
First, the numbers.
When I checked in with Martha a week ago Monday, I weighed in at 310. Then this past Monday, it was 309. That’s more of a plateau than I’d ever want. So I’m not happy about that; but there were some other numbers: my total cholesterol is down from 218 to 95 and the bad cholesterol went from 125 to 15! My overall health appears to have improved: my blood pressure (110 over 70), my blood sugars (mornings 118!) Dr. Fox seemed very pleased. I’m very pleased. Now if I could just loose the pounds.
Secondly, St. Louis is currently under a blizzard warning. There’s a layer of ice under the layers of snow and high winds are predicted. The Institute (where I attend sessions) was closed today and will be closed tomorrow as well – first time ever according to some of the staff. Plus I got word that the YMCA was closed so I couldn't attend my usual Y Weight Challenge class this evening! I couldn’t get my gym time in!
Isn't God good!
