My plateau has given way to a downward slope! Another four pounds is now gone!
The question is: will I meet my "30 by 30" goal? In other words, my hope has been to lose 30 pounds by my 30th birthday, which is a mere ten weeks away. 14 pounds are already gone, so I would need to lose an average of 1.6 lbs per week to be successful. Can I do it?
It's too soon to tell, I think.
In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy the other benefits of low-carbing and regular exercise. I haven't felt the bloat of being super-duper full in about five weeks now. When I do feel full, it's usually not for very long, but then again... I don't seem to get desperately hungry, either. I've reduced my Humalog intake by 75% and my blood sugar levels are much better these days. I don't think I have ever once looked forward to an A1c, but I can't wait to compare the results of the next one to my last (which was 8.1).
In other news, I just ate a S/F York's Peppermint Patty and could hardly believe how good it was. My, how things have changed... I marvel at the number of sugar-free selections in the grocery store! The popsicles alone!!!
