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.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Of course you can play, watch your email, I'll be sending you a certificate!

You are the first Athena Emeritus! I'll also be posting an image of it!
