As he does every morning dad got on the scale yesterday and was sooo happy to see that he'd finally hit a new low of 170! He says he hasn't seen that weight since long before I came along. He and mom have been working at getting fit and trying to eat healthy (they think they're going to outlive me!), although it's really mom's persistence and vigilance that has kept dad on track. She says that if it were up to dad he'd still have the horrible eating habits he's had for many years. Mom's been doing good, too, and has reached a weight she's happy with, but wants to go further. I'd tell you her weight, but I don't think she'd be very happy if she knew I told you. Enough about them. This is, afterall, my blog!
