I feel good

I have lost 24lbs so far and I am 10lbs off my target of 196lbs, I am 6ft 1" and 60yrs of age.
Yesterday I went to my docs for the results of the blood tests ect all were very good, my bp was so good she reduced my meds by 50%, but the best is she put off my knee surgery, the weight loss has had a dramatic impact on reducing the pain, she told me that every pound I lose is the equivilant of 3lbs impact on the knee per step, I noticed that I did not fall over once using the rotavator this week, my right hand hurts like hell though.
My wife loves dancing, we gave it up after my accident because I used to fall over, this weekend I am taking her to a local dinner dance as a suprise.
Life is good, I feel good da da da, just like I hoped I would, I feel fine da da da, because I dont fall on my behine

Congratulations, Bolas! The food we ingest is sooooo so important to our health, I'm a firm believer that we could eliminate tons of diseases and the need to pop pills like candy if we all just paid proper attention to what goes into our bodies!! Love to hear success stories like yours.

And I hope you have a great time with your lady this weekend. =))

Nice story, Bolas. And that was an interesting body weight to knee impact tidbit you threw in. I will keep that in mind.

Its Diet Chef it simple you just get your partner to lock all the other food up and eat their prepared food with lots of green veg and some fruit.
Ps Bill mate I could murder a huge steak chips and at least 2 pints of Guinness followed by spotted dick and custard.

Congrats! I am 4 pounds away from being 1 pound LIGHTER than I was when I graduated high school. I am 50 now. Went from 249 to 227 right now, and my blood pressure dropped from 150s/90s to 130s/70s. :) Also instituted a stretching program, can touch my toes for the first time ever. :)
I use myfitnesspal.com to track calories and exercise... quite helpful.
Bolas, have a great time and dance the night away!
