HELLO OLD BEAN !!!
this is the light at the end of my tunnel!
that looks just like a tunnel doesn’t it?
sort of like the tunnel i’ve lived in for the past two years.
but no it’s not a tunnel now.
i like to think of it as a
a new path.
i’m on my way to the light.
no. no. not THAT light!
but the light of health happiness energy and well. . .
what’s that you say? i’m already joyful enough?
good grief charlie brown!
yes. old bean.
but i want to be
there’s a big difference between the two kinds!
i guess you can tell i’m excited about it.
eventually i want to share it with you old bean.
i don’t think i’ve been quite this excited in a long long time.
i’m embarking on a new adventure.
that’s how i’m looking at it anyway.
you’ve heard that old expression . . .
” get a life ! “
that’s what i’m about to do.
i’ve already been getting that new life for about a week now.
and . . .
probably once again
just in the nick of time i’d say . . .
yesterday i had lab work done.
i saw the cardiologist.
my blood pressure was 190/90
nothing new. actually about normal for me.
my triglycerides count is
it’s supposed to be less than 150
my cholesterol was so high they couldn’t break it down
as to HDL and LDL
that doesn’t faze me one bit.
if they were going strictly by the numbers
i should have been
about 30 years ago!
or at the very least a major stroke.
i’m not being glib. i know it’s serious.
and i don’t take other’s suffering lightly either.
here’s the thing.
i think i’ve found a way out of this quagmire.
i’m on a new path old bean.
i’ve already lost 9 pounds without even trying.
weight loss was not even my objective.
i was simply
SICK of feeling SICK and TIRED.
and this is the amazing thing . . .
i can hardly believe it myself . . .
but right now . . .
on this new path . . .
I ALREADY FEEL GREAT!
as tony the tiger says.
and after only 7 days!
and i tell you what . . .
when i come back here . . .
in a few days . . .
a few weeks . . .
who knows? . . .
but long enough to know if i should talk about it . . .
i’ll tell you everything about it!
you might want to try it for yourself!
you know me . . .
i’ll no doubt post about other things in the mean time.
i will eventually tell you exactly
i’m getting my life
and i do have my cardiologist’s permission to continue.
he wants to see me again in 4 weeks.
like any good news really.
your first inclination is to share it.
at least that is so for me.
because i love ALL of you!
all of you who kindly comment and are now
almost like my family . . .
i feel some very literally are.
and those of you who never say a word . . .
but i KNOW you’re there!
i can see you in each month’s stats!
and i love you too.
because you BOTHER to show up here each post.
and you really don’t even need to!
i thank you for that.
you’re all amazing.
you might just want to try this path yourself!
matter of fact . . .
i’d bet money you will!!!
so . . .
please stay tuned.
how’s that for a cliff hanger?
almost as good as downton abbey?
proof that even dowager countesses have a
wonder if there’s a little tiny surfer lurking in there?
i’ll post comments but won’t reply to any this time.
i don’t want to give it away.
and i know my mouth.
i’m SO EXCITED!
the temptation would be too great.
the reason for all the secrecy . . .
before i blab and blab about it . . .
it is after all an experiment.
first i have to see if it really really works.
and there’s always the chance . . .
or even really
the probability . . .
THAT YOU COULDN’T CARE LESS !!!
til soon old bean!
