After this week's loss, I am averaging a loss of 1.8 pounds per week, and I am still on track to reach my goal:
I am always surprised at how I continue to lose inches each month. This month I lost an inch off my bust and waist, a half an inch off my hips, and a quarter of an inch off my thighs. The three and a quarter inches lost this month add up to more than 45 and a half inches lost total.
I am particularly thrilled with my inches lost this month because it moves me officially into size 18. I have lost 4 clothing sizes since I have started this little adventure. My 2 size 20 suits are now getting obviously big, and I get a lot of compliments on my size 18 suits that are now fitting well.
I mentioned that this week I have started looking at my sodium consumption. So far the attention to sodium has caused me to make different food choices, but successfully - - each day this week my sodium has been within the 1,500 mg - 2,300 mg recommended range. And for March month to date, my sodium has averaged 2,135 mg, down from 2,481 mg in February. I like that trend, which is heading in the right direction.
As for my fasting blood sugar, this also trended in a positive direction this month. This month to date I had normal readings 24% of the time, down slightly from last month (which were normal 26.9% of the time). But my average blood sugar reading was 5.7 this month, down from 5.8 last month. That's what I like to see.
