What a nice Birthday.

Today was my birthday. I popped out 57 years ago. I don't feel a day over 14. That's where Cindy says I got stuck. Cindy broke our agreement and got me an MP3 player. At first I was a little put out. (Only because I thought we had gotten past the get presents for each other on the birthday stuff) I have to admit though that I really like it. But now I have to figure out what to get her for her birthday in a month.

Jeff and Amanda and Brandon and Preston came over for dinner tonight. They to got me something (An awesome Gym bag) It's really nice. I wouldn't have bought myself one that nice. Thanks again guys. Jeff showed me how to down load songs off of Cindy's CD's I have a pretty good Library going already. It will make the workouts better. Some of the songs are pretty motivating.

I'm down to 207 lbs. Who would have thunk it? I feel like I've slowed down quite a bit because I'm down to losing 1 lb a week instead of the 3 or 4 I was melting off. It has helped taking off all that weight (107lbs) I have 37 more to go. My back still bothers me from time to time if I'm on my feet to long because of my left leg being shorter now. Cindy told me that for every pound you lose your taking four pounds of pressure off your knees.

Thanks to those of you that  called and wished me a happy birthday. I think I might be getting the itch to blog again. (I don't know if that means I'm going into more of a manic stage again. I've been going back and forth between depressed and really feeling good the last couple of months. It hasn't been to high and not to low. The Wellbutrin must be keeping me in the middle. I'm not sure if I can do that everyday thing or not. I'll have to see. If not everyday at least 3 or 4 times a week maybe. I might just be whistling in the wind. If nothing else it will be a record for the kids and the grand kids for when I'm gone.

The only thing that would have made this a perfect day was that Josh, Adrianne and Mackenzie weren't here. We didn't really plan on it a being a party. Cindy sort of turned it into one a little by making me a cake and putting candles. At least she only whisper "Happy Birthday".    Later.

Happy Birthday you old fart. Please try to control your blogging itch with some ointment, probably just some you picked up at a massage parlor or in the locker
