    I was looking at a "Woman's World" that my wife had in our home. The date of the magazine is 3/7/2006.

    So, I'm looking at the cover and something looks "wierd" to me. The story is about a woman who has lost 185 pounds. Turns out, after reading the story, that I actually went on 2 or 3 dates with her. We worked at the same place for 5 years.

    At some point in her life --- and I did not know her then --- she weighed 345 pounds. I dated her when she was about 225 pounds. She looks SO DIFFERENT now that she weighs 155 pounds. I really did not even recognize her. But I knew it was her when she was named in the story.

    What an AMAZING feat by her!

    And now, I can tell my kids and grand kids that I once dated a "cover girl"!

    Papa Deuce, thanks for sharing. I wasn't sure what to expect by your thread since, well, some times you are weird. Thank you for being real and sincere here on the WISH. This story was in inspiration. Its a Small World After All isn't it?

    BTW... I WOULD NEVER say anything bad to WISH people. What you ( and I ) are trying to accomplish is totally admirable.

    Mums the word from me. I zipped my lip. Mmmm mmmmjm. I hope you will bring your fun humor over here:)

    Keep on WISHing Papa Deuce!

    Side note- My DH lost a bunch of weight close to 60 lbs. for our first child and he's glad he did 'cause now he can chase them when they run toward the street or after that illegally taken cookie.
