Time to Drop the Weight

My resolution is to drop seventy pounds and get back into shape. I used to run 10k races and was very fit. I injured my knee, however, and let the exercise slip and the waistline sag. It's time to drop the weight.

Update: A funny thing happened on my way to a healthier me. In late March, 2011, I suffered a heart attack that resulted in triple bypass surgery. I am recovering well, though, and able to walk an hour each day. I've also been cleared to go back to work.. My diet ...

Update: A funny thing happened on my way to a healthier me. In late March, 2011, I suffered a heart attack that resulted in triple bypass surgery. I am recovering well, though, and able to walk an hour each day. I've also been cleared to go back to work.. My diet is now "doctor recommended" to control cholesterol mainly and the weight continues to fall. I expect a full recovery in time, God willing, because there was no permanent damage to my heart. I'm blessed to have received the "wake up call" at a relatively early stage. So...

...Onward and Upward. Isn't life grand?

Beautiful art. I have bookmarked your Aloha site so that I won't miss anything.

New England, and Maine in particular, has that effect on people. It is a beautiful place. I lived here before moving to California to embark on my career, and I had that kind of nostalgia the whole time.
My island is Bailey Island, and it is in Casco Bay, near Brunswick, home of Bowdoin College, and the Brunswick Navy Base (not for long though). My grandfather, an architect, built the family summer home in 1909 (even before that bridge), and the house has been in the family ever since. I bought a small house nearby. Of course, everything is nearby on Bailey Island, since it is no more than 3 miles long and about a half mile wide.
I hope to see a lot more of your photo's, as I truly appreciate them. I am new to photography as a hobby, and am enjoying it a lot.
By the way, it looks as if you and I have lost about the same amount of weight. Now that winter is basically over, I will be going at it again. Good luck to you, as well. Stephanie

Amazing photography. I've looked at your Alohaphoto photos too and they are so moving. So far my favorite is "Trees at Byodo-In Temple". Reminds me of Maxfield Parrish's art. It must be a magical place. I haven't been to Hawaii in 13 years. *sigh Hopefully a trip again soon.
