219.5 and still falling . . .

I just got back a couple of days ago from a concert tour in China with the DePauw Chamber Singers “plus cello.” It was an amazing experience, about which I’ll write more and post some photos. Beijing, Wuhan, Hangzhou, Nanjing, and Shanghai. Absoultely incredible.

Before I get the photos downloaded, I’ll mention that I was surprised to see that my previous post, “229.5 and falling” received more attention than I expected. Lovely comments from Terry and Emily (who is writing in amazing detail these days about holding the cello bow on her blog), a couple of emails, and a mention on Jimmy Moore’s “Livin’ la vida low-carb” blog, which I consider to be “the mother of all low-carb blogs.”

And today I stepped on the scale and wow!–I’m down to 219.5. It was quite easy to eat a low-carb diet in China. Our meals were served family-style, at round tables with lazy Susans in the middle. I ate lots of meat and veggie dishes, and only small amounts of rice and noodles, sometimes none. And we did tons of walking during the tourist-adventure portions of the trip, so I got plenty of exercise.
