Exactly ... jeans must weigh at least 3lbs so you round down the weight to minus 4lbs what it says on the scales because a tee shirt and underwear will weigh another pound! ... who are we trying to kid?  And I believe it is an evil ploy of doctors to set their scales so that you always weigh heavier on them than on the ones at home!  Then they prattle on about your BMI even if it's within the normal range they still want you to get it lower ... enough to make you turn to the Haagen Dazs in defiance!!!  >:D

We do get weighed, but it's not humiliating..not for me anyway, cos i'm alright, usually. We do have a laugh there, but it is very encouraging, and it has changed some peoples lives, which is fantastic.
It is really good. I go and help now, not every week, but most, and that is where i get weighed. I have never had a set of bathroom scales, so it helps me to keep a check on my weight. Most folk lose what they want. But it is scary how many people have upwards of 2 stones to lose.
We have got 4 chaps who come..all have lost over 3 stones, and all have got at least 2 more to go.And several woman the same, including several in their 20's. Which scares me to death..but we touched on that the other day didn't we.?

I have to say i pretty much eat what i want, and i certainly won't do without...but i keep a check and rein in when i need to.
We did have one woman strip down to practically nothing one week...not pretty..she still has got 4 stones to lose...

Hi Anonsi....
I meant to ask you some while ago, and i forgot, but i wanted to ask you what you thought about the addition to the Akron Art Museum?
As a stand alone structure i think it is fantastic...especially lit up at night...
But i am not convinced about it's marriage to the old post office building....
It puts me in mind of a 90 year old man marrying an 18 year old model....
Have you ever been there, and what artworks do they have on display?
Hope you had a good day...

I've never been (it's a couple of states away from me)...But I know there are a couple of forummates from Ohio.  They may have been there before.

I looked it up on Google, and it does look pretty interesting.  How do you find out about all of these interesting places?!

For those who want to see the museum's website, go here: http://www.akronartmuseum.org/

I realised after i had posted that you lived in Iowa and not Ohio...Silly T....
But there was a still a chance you may have visited,,you do get around a bit [in the nicest possible sense!].

My interest is in Architecture..and i'm always checking out new builds, add-ons etc...for professional reasons as much as anything else...i need to keep up in case i am asked to do anything, like my project relating to the Grand Canyon architecture.

Are you ok? Good weekend?

Well if you are interested in new builds and add-ons...I know that they are adding a whole new wing to the Art Institute of Chicago. This new wing is being called the Modern Wing. I'm not really sure what it is going to look like, as I have only passed by outside. But if you want to read up a little on it, you can visit the website: http://www.artic.edu/aic/modern_wing/index.html. This is a fantastic art museum, so I can only imagine that this new wing will be pretty fantastic as well.

I'm doing well...my weekend was a pretty good one. How are you, and how was your weekend?

Still three here.  I'm about to give it up as hopeless.  I've still not seen it where there aren't any spiders!
