The first part of the Big & Strong program is coming to an end, so we have been tested and poked and measured again. I have built around a ton of muscles and while I have been busy exercising and turning my life upside down to get my blood sugar level under control, I’m suddenly almost 32 pounds lighter. Adding the extra ton of muscles means I have lost somewhere around a ton+32 pounds (you do the math; tons and pounds do not mix very well in my sugar deprived brain).
Starting in February, I will exercise 4 times a week; two water aerobics classes, one Big & Strong class and one half-hour-iPod-accompanied-or-quilt-planning-hill-walking-by-myself-to-improve-my-O2-levels. Sounds manageable, right?
