Two weeks ago I had a 24 hour BP monitor to see if I still need blood pressure meds. The nurse who fitted me with the monitor commented on my "tiny waist". And indeed, the velcro strap was too big to fit properly.

And yes, the monitor gave good results. I'm off the BP meds now.

A work colleague who I don't know very well came over to me and said, "I just have to tell you, you're looking wonderful!"

I usually go food shopping on Saturdays, but today it was cold, rainy, and very windy, and the thought of changing out of my PJs didn't appeal at all. So I put clothes on over my PJs. My clothes are too big, so there was plenty of room. And even with the extra bulk, I didn't look overweight.

If you've had any NSVs, I'd like to hear about them!

Bert, as RX'd in the Colorado altitude. Certainly something I couldn't have done when I was MO.

I have pretty much kept to my meal plan even though I am going crazy! I haven't gained anything so I am super happy about that... losing very slowly.
