    Wow, bill! Congrats to you, man! Seriously, that's just awesome! Better health and probably feel better too. Keep us informed.

    I've probably dropped about 10 so far and have about 70 or or so to go (I also have lot of muscle from years of heavy weight training). I also don't weigh myself. I know when I am losing.

    After grad school I had gained about 100 from too much sitting and wife's good cooking lol. Anyway, I dropped about 25 a few years ago but then stopped going to the gym again. Since then, I've maintained, maybe put a few back. In any case, I have a bunch to lose too and am at a real risk for developing diabetes, amongst other things.

    Keep it up. You're wife too! Yeah, people are fascinating to watch. You can actually learn a lot just by watching...seriously. I've done it for research plenty of times (and not just criminals, lol).

    I remember you saying a few times you're a big guy. I don't have the height you do, I'm only 5'9" (on a tall day), but but with a lot of muscle which props my weight up quite a bit for my height. I am probably in the 300 range, maybe a few less. If I get to 215-220 range, I'll be happy.

    Good Morning Gators, dating back to the 60s in my student days Krispy Kreme has long been my fav donut choice :) Open all night on NW 13th st just north of campus :)

    How about our Gators and their nice win in the O'Dome, when they get some time playing together as a unit they have the parts to make a VERY deep run in the Dance

    I''d take Dunkin Donuts over a Krispy Kreme any day of the week. You can take this Yankee out of the north but you can't take all of the north out of this Yankee. Can't help it, grew up with the DD.

    I always thought KK's donuts were too sweet and greasy for me...then again, I can't remember ever turning one down :D

    I haven't seen any UF bb games yet, but from what I've read, they are looking to be a force.

    Congrats!

    I've lost 25 pounds this year. So glad I finally made up my mind to do it.
