Retired and enjoying it.

I had gained a LOT of weight (317) when I retired, due to some "bad" joints that have since been replaced (left knee and right hip) last year. I am now starting to be able to use them again, but with some limitations. I have lost over 50 pounds but have a LOT more to lose.

I weighed 205 when I was a cop!!! (40 years ago)
UPDATE: (2-2-09) Joint operations seem to be doing just fine. I still don't have the flexibility I once had, but probably never will at my age. I seem to have "hit-a-wall" with my weight, but as soon as summer gets here, I will hit it hard again. I am HAPPY WITH MY LIFE... because, "There is no tomorrow, only today"

You spun 20 points today - Jeez, I didn't even have a 20 on my wheel. But I'm glad you did.

Ken - I know it was 6 months ago but, wanted to say that I'm glad your hip replacement is doing well. This is the first time I've gotten to your Spark Page in a long time. Hope the improvement continues. Your right - there's only today.

I'm wondering if you are a Sagittarius as they have hip problems. Best that you are getting the weight off and making it easier for yourself to get around. emoticon
