Spring is in the Air

Hello Steve,

It is nice to finally be getting past winter, isn’t it? It was a really hard winter and I think everyone is glad to be looking towards spring and summer.

Do you follow politics at all? It is a little crazy. I just read a list to make your life better and one of the things to do is to not watch the TV news. Just read the news in the morning and be done with it.

I’m glad you got my birthday and Christmas gifts. That all seems like so long ago doesn’t it?

I’ve been dieting the last few weeks. I picked up a few pounds after Thanksgiving and Christmas and it is time to get those pounds off. I follow a diet plan that I eat 500 calories every other day. And then the next day, I eat whatever I want. It is called the Every Other Day Diet. It works fairly well since you only really suffer every other day. I did this last year and took off 25 pounds. I have a friend who did this and lost 40 pounds. There is science behind it done at the University of Illinois. If you are a man, you do 600 calories every other day.

I also just started taking Lipitor for my high cholesterol and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to tolerate it. It makes me very tired and gave me a stomachache last night. I’ve never done a cholesterol drug before but my doctor recommends it.

Well, that is about all for me. Just pressing forward doing the best I can.
