    Can I still play?

    Hi all!

    I don't think I qualify as an *Athena* anymore. Although I will always be one at heart. I am now at 143 lbs. making me 7 lbs below the 150 lb qualifying Athena weight. But, can I still play here?

    Like Mr. Stormcrowe, I had gastric bypass surgery. Since surgery I have been doing great. Here is a little more info http://www.bikenaked.net/blogs/lindas_blog/default.aspx

    Hugs!

    Linda

    First of all, congrats!

    Secondly, they haven't kicked me out even though I am a measely 196 now and still dropping. They did have to retire my jersey because it doesn't fit any more.
