Yet another long overdue post. Not what I expected, I suppose...


Well, yeah, it's been a while since my last update.  Not a whole lot to report either.  Haven't been riding the bike nearly as much as I thought I would.  Kinda lost the desire for it.  Plus, I've been having trouble with my knee and leg again.  My knee, it's just shot.  Have to start getting these lubricating shots again.  And my leg, it's just not getting it's strength back.  Trying to pedal a bike is just too much, the muscles in my leg just are not cooperating enough.  Walking and hiking isn't too much of a problem, but trying to pedal is too much.  O'well, so there's a summer's worth of goals that didn't happen. 
 
That's alright though, because i've been in the gym a lot more.  I have lost over 50 lbs. now since April.  And I can tell a big difference.  I feel better, my clothes are fitting better.  Having to get a size smaller pants and stuff, which is good, but can be expensive replacing the clothes I have.  But that's alright, that's a good burden.  Been doing a lot of walking, hiking, weights at the gym, and eating a lot better.  So, yeah, doing pretty much everything better.  Of course I cheat on the eating here and there, but kinda have to.  Keep from going insane.  lol  Or at least from falling off the wagon.
 
About the only other thing, I have my last (hopefully last, anyways) P.E.T. scan in December.  Doc said that as long as that one is clear, it will be the last one.  All I'll have to do for the next few years will be blood work.  God, what a good feeling! 
 
Other than that stuff, not a whole lot to report. Just enjoying life as much as I can.  Yeah, I have my down days, but who doesn't?  Some other good stuff going on also, but we'll save that for another day.  ;-)
 
And thanks for those of you that read this.  I've gotten some feedback from others, and it helps to know that I can help someone else out.  I said in my last message I wanted to get more involved with stuff, but haven't had much chance to do it.  Yeah, lame excuse, I suppose.
