The timing on this reading is perfect. I had to sit and defend myself last night to my wife and a couple friends. They are all saying that I am too thin. I quite drinking alcohol and began riding this year. I am 6' tall and weighed 215 on Janary 2, 2006. I have lost 35 pounds this year and I have never felt better. Well, as they were all sitting around getting toasted on wine last night I got the drill about being too skinny - I am still 182!!! Far from too thin, and I have more body fat I would like to loose. I wrote this whole conversation off on to two things - 1. The wine talking, and 2. jealousy. I tried to explain that I am not a large framed person, and that I was severly insulated by Budweiser for all those years, so I am going to look different!!

Why can't people just be happy for you when you make positive changes in your life???? I am going to keep on trucking, in fact, I have my first century this coming weekend!
