    I am the heaviest I have ever been hitting the

    scale at 224. According to the BMI chart I think I'm supposed to be 130. I couldn't even imagine myself at 130 but I don't want to be 224. I should have taken the hint when my close stopped fitting. I have to admit my sweats and sweaters are quite comfy. It's not that I eat too...
