    Ok there has been a problem with my brother's kidney...strangely enough it has not failed as fast as expected. His kidney is operating slightly better than permissible for a transplant, so my brothers and I are on a holding pattern.

    Strange hoping for that final amount of failure so he can get on with his life.

    As for me I am hovering around my goal, just went diving for the first time since dropping the weight. First dive I took 6 lbs off it wasn't enough, 2nd dive dropped 2 more, and I thingk I can do 2 more... next dive friday going to try for a total lost of 10 pounds, down from 24 to 14.

    Wow cgvmer! I feel strange saying that I hope your brother's kidney fails... I pray that he returns to good health very soon.

    It's good to hear you are losing the weight. A great benefit for doing what you are doing for your brother. I'm trying to lose some weight now too. I'm 6'-0" and 265. I'm trying to get down to about 210.

    Still sending happy thoughts to your family.
