At this moment

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.
