|Photos from other years:|
Here are my photograph albums for 2002:
2002 was a most exceptional year. This is because I succeeded in dieting as never before. It was a life changing event. Remarkably, I hardly bothered to take any photographs during the diet. I guess I was too busy walking about 4 hours per day to bother about photographs. Anyway, if you compare the photos in July and October you'll get the idea of how good it looks to loose 50 pounds. From fat to athlete in 13 weeks - I can't believe I did it.
To celebrate the end of the diet, we had a party at Adobe. Alan came from England and we went down the coast to Hearst Castle. It was really great - one of the best weekends of my life. Thanks Alan for coming. As Alan put it when he saw me "Bloody hell". Jamie's reaction was "Where's my Dad?".
We enjoyed a visit in the spring from our friend Elisabeth in Camberley. In June Gaylord had a 40 years since graduation party. And we went for summer holidays to Largs, Finland and Camberley. It was on the plane going back to the USA in July that I decided "I'm gonna diet, I don't want to be overweight, I'm gonna do something about this".
Loosing weight is the best thing I've ever done.
