prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

Hello 239 pounder!

I have had a hard time breaking the 240 pounder barrier. But I think that I have done it. The list below are date steps/weight. I started at 255 pounds.
239.2 two days in a row. Hooray! It seems to take diet and 4000 steps a day. That is about a mile and a half. To do that I have to take time to go walk for a half hour a day at least.

Now for 229!


  1. Bravo! You're a hard worker.

    1. Thanks Nancy. Just normal living adds up to 1500 steps. But if I go for a 10 or 15 minute walk I get up to 4000. Experts say you need 10,000 for top condition.
