A couple of (sceptical?) correspondents have asked whether my weight loss regime took a dive over the Christmas festivities. The answer, strangely, is no.
My weight has bottomed out at a loss of 13.5kg (two stone in the old currency) since late September 2010. That’s over 14% of my long time body weight. The doc says that blood pressure is now lowish rather than high, that blood tests are well within normal ranges and show that I am no longer pre diabetic.
Sweet stuff and sweet wine remain permanently off the menu – but that minor self-denial seems to have been worth it. Now I can buy my shirts and jeans from the M size selection at the local op-shop, rather than from the L and XL racks.
