    once a clyde?

    I am sure this has came up before but... if I get under 200 lbs, am I no longer a Clyde?

    You graduate to Clyde Emeritus and I give you a certificate. You are then welcome around here as an inspiration to others that it can be done.

    You become Clyde Emeritus, and Tom posts a certificate for you. Mind you, even if you drop to waif status, your still, really a Clyde, because you understand the mindset of the Clyde. You never forget the problems you faced as a Clyde, and your still welcome here

    Clyde = 200 lbs plus or 6' plus. So if you're over 6', you'll always be a clyde, no matter what you weigh.

    Its like being in AA. Even if you have stayed off the booze you still call yourself an alcoholic to remind yourself of the dangers.

    "Hi, my name is John and I'm a clyde"

    We're all trying to lose weight but could slip 15 chocolate eclairs between our lips at any time. Be careful folks.

    or you could do what I do, something I call the Betty Ford Clyde. I was clyde, not a clyde, clyde again, and I'm 3 pounds away from 200 now....

    (yes, I'm a Betty Ford Clyde)

    Now see. For me I was motivated to not be a Clyde in weight. But then I need to chop myself off at the knees too. 6'4" here

    Same with me - I'm 6'3". But I like the company here, so I don't mind sticking around.
