Wednesday June 2, 2010, steveroni began a fasting diet. I cheated. At the Thursday night "Cookie Meeting" (AA) I had 3 of Polly's homemade chocolate chip cookies...and I ate them
S L O W L Y...relishing each tiny morsel.
But the bottom (Ha! So true!) line is, I began one week ago at 235 lb or 106 kg and this morning, seven days later the scales reads 227 lb or 103 kg. (About 3-4 lb of that loss is water.)
I must mention that I can again wear my favorite trousers--a bit tight, but at least they already are functional. ( And no, the tightness does NOT show my ASSociated bottom!)

Anna and I are going to the International AA convention in San Antonio July 1-4. It would be a real bonus to meet some blogger-Peeps for a coffee.
RIDE FOR FREEDOM
Mid August, probably around the 15th I will be leaving for steveroni's SECOND ANNUAL Ride for Freedom. I made it to sound like a charity event, but it is only "my" special 3 weeks plus/minus of freedom from everything except a computer, a DROID, a motor scooter and maybe a violin.
Last August-September I rode through Orlando, St Augustine, and up the east coast to Charlottesville and Richmond, Virginia. By the time I returned to Naples, nearly 3,000 miles had been covered in 3 weeks. I stated then, and still do declare, "I loved every mile!" It was almost like a solo retreat, I felt spiritual presences all along the road.
This year's ride from Naples Florida will take me to the Interstate near our home called I-75...then I have to make a decision--go north, or east. It will depend on traffic, the time of day, the weather report, and my whim-of-the-moment.
There is no plan yet--and I really do not need a plan. I have a desire to ride--solo--and visit AA meetings along the way, and do some spur-of-the-moment sight-seeing...sleep anywhere, even under the stars (weather permitting--grin!)
Self-centeredness? Self-aggrandizement? I do not believe so. Just living life.
BE BACK IN A DAY
OR TWO OR THREE
I have just gotten crowded up with "stuff" and need a breather. So I'll be back in a few days, may lurk and comment here and there a bit.
As a trio of musicians of which I was a member, used to sign off for intermission, a really corny sing-song tune which ended with: "...be back in a while, with a song and a smile, but right now (drum, drum)...we really got to goooooooooooo!"
Peeps, thanks for understanding! I Love you all!
