Yep. Dat's right. We lingered for a while in the 215 decimals, zoomed past 213 and 214 and am in the 212 and change area. I hope I'll leave 212 in the dust soon.
Still have some blood, so the "quasi-freak period" from the female hormone release--yes, has happened before on this long weight loss journey--continues. Estrogen can be stored in my old fat. I was tagged menopausal by the gyn back in 2009. So, I guess I'm burning some pre-2009 fat storage here. hah
It was nice to be able to report a decent loss (better than average for me). I know I lost fat, and I've lost inches, but the hormonal wackiness probably explained the bump up of a pound early in the week, along with the grumpiness (as I commented on Karen's blog). And so the sudden drop is fat AND bloat, and that's fine. Lowest number in ages.
I think the last time I weighed this was 17 or 18 years ago. I do remember being in the 190s in 1991, so when I break 200, I will have time traveled to the past, weight-wise, 20 years.
Yesterday's walk felt good. Felt powerful. I like being able to keep up a brisk pace without wanting to faint. I feel the weather changes. Some nights still sustain a bit of coolness. Some are getting muggy and warm. I hate summer. I hate the hotter,stormier days. I hate mosquitoes and buggies. And I have to figure out what to do to keep moving when the heat gets to me.
Until then, I am grateful for the still pleasant breezes in my evening walk time.
Off to start the hydrating for the day....glug, glug...
Enjoy your leisure time and your loved ones this weekend. Have fun. Be well...
Updated: Had a good walk with hubby. He took some pics. I updated my "progress pic" since I'm 6 lbs lighter..heh:

Hubby says, when he was walking behind me at one point when the sidewalk narrowed due to a big tree, "Look at that hourglass!" heh. hehheh.
