Plus forearms, calves etc have all lost as well...

Flew to Southern California to see my dad last week and 1) fit easily into airplane seat, with extra room in the seatbelt; 2) spent 10 hours walking all over Disneyland with no fatigue and minimally sore feet - NO arthritis pain!; and 3) lost weight on vacation (three pounds in a week). Pretty cool!
Still walking and swimming. Have decided to buy 5 sessions with a personal trainer as my reward for 50 pounds lost. My arms and thighs are looking REALLY flabby!
I will have my bloodwork scheduled this week and will send a scanned copy of results when I receive them. I'll be in touch if there are any concerns!
