Have you had a check up? That doesnít seem right.

Oh man. "It's a sad day for Corner Gas fans, or anyone in Saskatchewan that loves the grain elevator."

It's been a few years.

The more I think of it, my tastes have changed noticeably. I don't eat as much really rich foods. I want to eat them, but when I sit down with a meal, I fill up very quickly..

Wow, thatís a huge loss. How did that happen, you look fine at 200.

141 at 6'2" is frakkin' GAUNT!

I live where restaurant quality bread is what supermarkets all sell, so I never really saw the need to make my own. Same with homebrewing beer. Now, if I could grow my own tomatoes, I would.

I’m not a doctor, but mine always ask if I’ve had any unexplained weight loss.

Yes it is. How is your climbing?

According to the internetís, ďIf you experience a 5 percent weight loss in 6 to 12 months, or if you notice any of the above symptoms, visit your doctor.Ē

If my body is rested and fueled, pretty good for a flatlander. I'm better at climbing, than TT-ing

I think if I was suddenly 60 pounds lighter tomorrow, I could climb like a pro...maybe.

A few weeks ago I had to adjust the air pressure in my shock/forks. I wasn't using about 1/3 of the travel. A HUGE difference in the way it handles now.

It's also easier to digest.

Mrs. T is 70 years old today and still taking QOMs on Strava. :love:

I have lost weight this year. I haven't weighed myself, but there are signs.

I already climb like a pro. Just not a pro cyclist.
