I have been lazy this week. I did a lot of volunteering, and then chose napping instead of this blog, or SP. I did have a bad meal on Sunday, which set me back a few pounds, but I am down to 228.8 as of this week, which is still down 1.6 pounds, while I spent most of the week on Prednisone, which caused some weight gain too.

I went to doctor's on Tuesday, and got some results from previous tests. My Hemoglobin A1C was 5.3, which is low. They tested my fasting blood sugar, since I thought I had other tests to run, and hadn't eaten in 10 hours. It was 67. My BP was 93/67, which is normal for me.

My knees still ache a little bit, but once I get going, they tend to stop hurting.I may just be getting old. Hopefully as I continue to lose, they feel a lot better. I have never had knee pain, and it sucks. I may get a bike, since it was suggested to me that it might help with the tightness in my knee joints. So now I am doing maintenance on my body to keep it in working

The weather here is beautiful, and I haven't needed AC yet this year. Today is typical... 76 and sunny. I took some of my brother's bread, and went down to the river and fed some ducks. Took about a 45 minute walk, and my goal for the week is going to be getting back to a regular walking schedule, and getting below 227.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week.

    Sounded like you had a nice day going by the river. I know that was relaxing. :)

And I know you're going to meet your goal! :)

    I've been having some minor knee stuff going on too. Think it might be bursitis, since it only bugs me in one spot through one range of motion.

Great test results! Nice!
