Insufferable me.

Well, I was going to show you the photo I took of my bathroom scale when I got up this morning but it seems the Blogger Photo Uploader is on the fritz.  But trust me, my bathroom scale read 165!!
(Opps!  I see it is now working.)

That means I "won" the "Weight Wace" I was having with my brother and sister.  I was the first to get down to 165 pounds.  Not that this is the end of it, oh no, I hope we will continue to fight the battle of the bulge throughout this year and on into the future; our future.

Another milestone for this old fart is that this morning, for the first time, I swam one mile!!  Yes peeps, thirty six laps, seventy two lengths, however you like to count them..., I did it!  And I did it in fifty four minutes!

Yes, I am getting to be quite insufferable to be around what with all my new found health and outward glow!!  But here's the reason for my huge smile, I had no idea I could feel this good being almost sixty-nine years old!   Woo Hoo!


  1. Congratulations Ron!
    Sure wish I could do your regiment every morning.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Congratulations on winning the weight wace! And on swimming a mile. I'm actually encouraged rather than discouraged. Thanks for being an inspiration!
    Your Sister

    p.s. I can now truly sing the song "he ain't heavy - he's my brother".
