I'm on top of the world
« on: December 30, 2006, 03:39:31 AM »
Life is grand at the moment.

I had a great Christmas with my family. My neice and nephew are just gorgeous (see pics).

I'm on holidays till 8 January, so I've been sunning myself and training for my big swim, which takes place in about 4 weeks.
I've been swimming heaps, cycling, gyming, and I reckon I'm the fittest I've ever been in my life. I've lost about 4kg's (10 pounds) and am back to riding weight  (see pic) ;D

And, to top it all off my latest results were my best ever. vl - still undetectable, and cd4 670 (25.4%) - the highest it has ever been.

For News Years Eve, I'm heading down to the harbour with about 1.3 million other people to watch the midnight fireworks show. I've not done it for about 15 years, so am really looking forward to it. I'll post some pics after the event.

Wishing you all the best in 2007.

Love, Little Steve

Hey Little Steve...

It is GOOD to hear from you and it is GOOD to hear that things are grand for you as well. Your little ones look so cute in the pictures that you have provided. Onward with the goal that is in mind and keep up with your training as well.

Take care of YOU!

Hey Steve---thanks for sharing your joy.  They say a joy shared is twice the joy and a sorrow shared is half the sorrow!

You know what touched me the most is to see an hiv brother experience the joy of feeling sexual.  This is such a gift!!!!!  It really is a beautiful thing to experience and to see in a brother.

take care.  Have a great New Year!!!!!!

Steve, did you say that you're the TOP of the world?  ;D I would believe it.  I guess you will be modeling real soon for aussiebum so we can see what you left off with your now famous third pic?  Congratulations on all of this ! Best, Win

Steve,

Considering you live Down Under, being on Top of the World is even more exciting! ;D Fantastic news, fantastic numbers and fantastic plans for the New Year. I'm looking forward to hearing all about your swim.

I can't believe how big the babies are now - it seems like only a few months ago you were introducing them to us as newborns. They. Are. Gorgeous! I bet they keep the whole family hopping.

And... er... that last photo would be at home in the porno thread. :D hehehehee.... don't mind me, I just have tan-line envy!

Thanks for the smiles Steve.

Hugs,
Ann

Congratulations are completely in order!

It's great that you're doing so well... although I am a bit envious of the fact that you're enjoying summer while the rest of us northern hemisphere bums have to slog out this (freakishly mild) winter.   ;D

Have a New Years of much kick-assery, good sir!

Regarding the third pic... I am a fan.  A huge fan.  Perhaps the biggest fan ever.

Fab news on those numbers. Also fab news about all that exercise. This is the sort of stuff I need to hear (and see!) to inspire me to get moving again!

I'm glad you had such a great time with your family. Hazel and Leo are just adorable. I hope I get to meet them on my next visit...

OK Steve,

This is simply not fair! Let's take stock here, shall we?

1) Two adorable younguns. (Boy, they're really growing!)

2) Fan-damn-tastic numbers, not to mention getting in shape.

3) A tan line and a big ... er ... um ... personality demonstrated in the third photo.

4) I still remember the sexy voice. (Melt me like butter! :o )

5) You're enjoying the sun and fun, while I am shoveling snow (6-inches the other day),

I guess its all that clean living.  ::)

By the way, I look forward to the fireworks photos. I was in Vegas for New Year's Eve, but I had some camera trouble.  :(

 I am delighted things are going so well.

BIG HUGS,

Mark
