Slowly slowly

this morning I tried on a skirt I made a little while ago, when my clothes started falling off, and saw that it is now on the point of being too large. It is a wrap over style and was on the loosest fastening when I made it, now it is on the tightest.
I checked my weight, and it is now 221lb - which means I am losing about one and a half pounds in a month - not exactly fast, but I am not trying to lose weight, I just want normal BG levels. Anything else is a bonus.
As I have been eating my apples - I have two trees in the garden and they are laden with fruit - I will have to pick them soon and see if I can store them, I am surprised that I have not gained weight, but I am far more active these days.
I do not have an apple every day, and I do compensate for their extra carbs - but I am glad to be able to do something more normal for me. Last year the apples ripened later and I left them to fall and rot back into the soil, which did not feel right.
