Continued activity is vital

One thing I've learned is that you must remain active as an amputee.  I  allowed myself to slip back in to a life of sedentary slothism.  I gained 25 pounds and that means I put more weight on my residual limb every step.  That's one reason I haven't posted for so long.  So with the new year, we are getting back after it. I am resolved to get back to a reasonable weight. Right now, my goal is back to 240 and below. I am at 265 and that is not working for me. Each day I stay at this weight I am causing damage to my 'meat' leg as well as the residual limb. 

Some easy fixes will be to start with the walking, hiking and biking. Back to fishing and other activities. I may be beginning a new phase in my professional career that will open other opportunities for me. Overall, I am hoping that 2017 will be a great year! What are you going to do this year? Set a goal, and pursue it with everything you have!!
