    How were you at penmanship?

    Personally, my teachers gave me only marginal grades for my penmanship; eventually wrote in block letters because my note-taking was easier than script. To this day, I don't enjoy writing handwritten letters because of my atrocious handwriting.

    Sounds like you were a relatively active youth. My younger bro is trying to regain some of his youth with a good exercise routine, and now weighs less than me, though he's 6'3" compared to my 5'7".

    You doing the same with your activities?

    Ok... really? Well then, terrible. I’ve printed everything since I was 16.

    It’s no secret here that I’ve been a jock my whole life. If I’m not playing sports, I’m working out. Still. Never stopped. I’m 6’3” and 185lbs. Never been over 190. So, not so much trying to “regain” as to “not lose.”

    Good for you! After my 2nd tenure at college, I gained 20 lbs and it's been a slowly increasing struggle to maintain my weight. You are in better shape (for me, round is a shape) than I could ever hope to be. Am not sad yet (my health care coverage will be discontinuing fitness coverage in 2021) and will likely look for better insurance so my shoulder impingement PT doesn't go to waste. (No pun intended)

    I used to run cross-country in high school, but my knees won't allow that currently. Am planning on strengthening before doing the cardio (gym personal trainer's rule) which will help lose the weight. Realistically, about 190 would be a reasonable goal for me. Will need to stop reaching into the kitchen cabinet at night and enjoy my tea with something more sensible.

    My younger bro did the Numo (?) exercise program and shed about 75 lbs., down from 290. While I eat nutritious meals, the portion control seems to be the issue. (The appestat tells me I can eat more).

    @danktat posted recently about his weight loss journey. Kudos to you both on being good examples for manly men...:)

    I came up with a theory some years ago that if you gain half a pound a year, you won’t get wrinkles. I feel I owe it to science to continue the experiment.

    My scale shows the same 125 pounds I weighed in high school.

    Bastid also shows all the ones I’ve added since.
