First of all, a hearty WOO HOO for passing the halfway-to-goal-weight milestone!
I'm also happy that the pants I bought the other week that were just a wee too tight are now fitting well. Snug, but in a good way. They'll be a good reminder to take it easy on Turkey Day.
The last Tuesday in the month is my "monthly measure" day. After last month's yawner, I'm happy to report some progress:
Bust (cross the "girls"): -0.5" (-7.5" total)
Bust (cross the ribcage): -1" (-7" total)
Waist: -0.5" (-5.5" total)
Hips: -1.5" (-6" total)
Thighs: No change (-1" total)
It's interesting that results from my little experiment are holding up over time as well, including the corollary in the comments....

7-day blood glucose average: 106 (met goal of 120 or lower)
