In December, I started a strict diet in an attempt to reduce my blood sugar. It's working and it appears to be reducing my weight. I do not weight myself. When I was losing weight in 2010/2011, I only weighted myself weekly. I go by how my clothes fit.
My blood sugar is down but still at diabetic levels. I am between 150 and 200. I need to be under about 140 all the time. I do not know if I will get there. If not, it looks like pills for me. By February, I will decide. as I am still tweaking my menu and herbs. I was told by my brother-in-law to try 3 teaspoons of honey in the morning. He has a patient who is 92 years old that does just that and it keeps is blood sugar level normal.
Even thought my breast area decreased, I now wear the 36B bras and I am very happy with them. Thank goodness its winter because my male look is failing. It is getting difficult to hide them. By spring and summer, I might as well transition to full-time.
The difference in size between my above breast area and breast line increased back to 2.50 inches. The difference between the area under my breast line (bra band) and my breast line decreased back to 4.75" last month. I finally got my bra line 34" and I feel the looseness in my 36B bras around the band.
My waist at my belly button did not change. Atleast I am staying down under 36". My goal is 34". I probably need exercise to reach that goal.
My shoulder to hips ration doubled from 1.5" to 3.0". HRT does not change bone structure. But I was hoping that this ratio would show the movement of fat from the top toward the bottom and thus equalizing both measurements. This is a work in progress.
Overall I am happy with my results. I still need to figure out how to get back into the gym..I did get there twice in the past 30 days. That is a long way from 12 to 16 times a month.
Comparing Day 0 to Day 210, the overall changes were my waist and above is decreasing, except my breast line and my hips and thighs are staying about the same. Its giving me a more hour glass shape.
