Well that does it...

I had not seen the other side of 200 lbs in 15 years but this morning I stepped on the scales and, I'm now at 199 lbs so with that my dear, I am leaving you.

"When I hear another express an opinion, which is not mine, I say to myself, He has a right to his opinion, as I to mine; why should I question it. His error does me no injury, and shall I become a Don Quixot to bring all men by force of argument, to one opinion? If a fact be misstated, it is probable he is gratified by a belief of it, and I have no right to deprive him of the gratification."

YOU DOG-go eat some NACHOS with a couple bottles of beer, get back up here with the rest of us.

NAH, congrats on your march to better health. I hope to maybe join you by the end of summer.

I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
