mbshine --- your numbers impress me! 333 to 276. You are one amazing man. Congratulations! I took off ten pounds before dancing with da Vinci and thought I was a good boy. Ha! You put me to shame. With will power like you have, you could conquer the world. Now that you're on such a role, I'm betting you'll be under 250 when you join the zero club and who knows where before you join the dry gang. Amazing. I bow in awe, respect and admiration.
Now, welcome to the other side. I second all of the advice you've been given above. One thing we know, unlike many of us, you've got what it takes in the willpower department to follow the advice.
Keep us posted,
