I'm sitting on the brown chair weighing about 40 pounds less than the last time that I posted. It's appropriate that I begin this with such a statement; I began the first of these blogs that I've written over the years as a blog about getting rid of weight. My first blog was entitled, "Getting Rid of he Regain."
I've been swimming a mile a day for the last eight months or so. The chronic pain that disabled me has diminished. I can walk a couple of miles, even three with little or endurable pain. I'm more fit than I've been for years.
A doctor motivated me. He said he'd give me new knees if I got to a certain weight. I'm about three pounds away from that goal. And now, I no longer feel the need for such surgery.
