Re: How much do you weigh?

I done a poo and now I weigh 97.4kg. I know I wrote 97kg earlier but I think I meant 97.8kg. Or 98. Or 98.7. But most probably 97.8kg. But basically I ruined it by getting it wrong earlier.

You are still bigger than me Mark? But you are a couple of inches taller. And also I have no muscle whatsoever and a tiny willy so I'm more pure fat.

I haven't been on C4C for a while. When I scrolled through this thread, I thought three things:
- USB ports on the scales
- "cold squeezing" is a great phrase
- is that why you didn't come to Colin this year?
