A Weighty Topic

At his maximum, at least as far as I know, my father weighed approximately 190 lbs. I think he said he was 185 lbs. early this summer, just as the cancer was beginning to grow. Admittedly, he was clearly overweight, both visually and by his body mass index. But not anymore. Now he weighs 154 lbs. and his weight continues to fall, although the rate has declined and my dad has professed a recognition of a need to eat better, to stabilize his weight. We’ll find out on January 7th whether there will be any real benefit to his pursing that goal.
