For about a dozen years now I have dreaded my birthday. It meant getting older and something else hurting or needing to be replaced or fused.
I started a diet 9 months ago and I have lost a significant amount of weight.
My life is better now. My endurance is much better. My knees do not wake me up at night aching.
My adventure is still ongoing.
Getting old is not fun. Losing weight has opened the door again for me to chase dragons and dream about trips to far away places and not so far away places.
