Gettin Older Ain't so Bad...

It saved me some time...

I went to the Dr yesterday afternoon and the nurse came in and said "MR. Johnson, I'm going to need some blood, some urine, and a stool sample."
I handed her my underwear..

Actually it went well.
BP is normal, cholesterol is fine, and Blood sugar is good.
I also lost a little weight. Down about 8lbs since last visit.
There's nothing more enjoyable than suprise morning sex...

    Got to go next month myself.
    Don't really expect the numbers to be much different than last year but I have lost 20+ lbs in the last 6 months.

    Thats awesome guys.

    Down about 65 lbs over the last 3 years. I was too young to have high BP and apnea (not to mention the example for your kiddos). Seeing a doc for regular checkups and routine exams as well.

    I came to realize how important our health is to maintain (key word) because having to overhaul your program is dang hard.

    Got on my certified scales yesterday morning, and weighed 137.6 lbs. My military health record shows that when I first went on active duty in June 1957 that I weighed 138 lbs. Don't think I've ever varied plus or minus 5 pounds from this, and I'm pretty sure that it's genetically controlled since almost all of my close kin is very stable weight-wise.

    Yesterday was my 78th birthday. When you reach this age you can't help but worry a little about your brain beginning to fail, too. Mine isn't, and I'm convinced of this. If anything, I'm becoming more analytical and deep thinking. I'll see a stand of timber and find myself thinking about forest management decisions that I made 20-30-40 years ago, and wonder "what if I had done this instead of that". But perhaps I am beginning to fade away :hairraiser! I'm beginning to wonder if we really have even the most basic idea of what's going on in the world of Nature....

    Good guys,

    Enjoy life but don't be stupid with your health. Moderation is key, wouldn't know anything about that.

    I always figured that getting old was better than the other option.
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you
