Doc said, "I don't need to see your smiling face for three months m'boy, you're doing exactly what is needed. Your numbers are great". Music to my ears. 15 more pounds to lose and then a vist to the tailor to hitch up my briches (or to the haberdashery to replace those old balloons) and I'm all set. Maybe then I can have the occasional glass of wine with my dinner.

How 'bout the rest of you guys who haven't seen your belt buckle for a while...have you had your blood tested yet? Better do!
