Just checkin’ in

I posted this on Facebook last week.  Sorry it took so long to get it over here, I need to change my habits and post everything HERE first, then share it to Facebook:  I had a 3-month checkup last week and it turns out I lost 16 lbs in 3 months. I am officially–permanently–well under 300 lbs now, and it feels great.  It’s nice to be going “backwards” for a change!  By that I mean that as I’m getting older it’s actually getting easier to do things, the pain is receding, and I’m feeling better, instead of just the opposite.  And the better I feel, the more I realize I should have done this a LOOOONG time ago, and I know I’ll never, ever, go back to weighing over 300 lbs again.  Everyone’s encouragement helps a lot too, and I really appreciate it.

So… Hurricane Sandy, huh?  That’s awesome.  Now I have a new nickname for my wife.  Seriously though, my cousin Julie seems to be right in Hurricane Sandy’s path.  This is not good.  Here’s the Facebook group for the hurricane.

Trick-or-Treat is this Sunday, October 28th.  Kevin’s going as Hawkeye from The Avengers and Socks is going as a pumpkin.  I’ll take a few pictures.  We’re also going to the pumpkin farm tonight.  Should be fun!

I promise to start posting more often… no matter how small it is, I’ll post something.  If you’ve noticed though, my daily walks are always added to my photos on Flickr and in the right sidebar all the time, so there’s that, and all of my checkins are updated regularly on FourSquare (and in the right sidebar), so don’t those count?  I know, I know, it’s just not the same…. those are automated and require little effort.  You want something more solid.  Be back soon… you AND me both…
