When I left Minnesota, one of the last people I saw was my friend John Dahlen. He told me he was convinced that the next time he saw me I would look just like Tom Hanks in Castaway. Well, I didn't believe him then, but now I'm starting to wonder. Here are the contributing factors:
The temperature is in the mid 90's every day lately
I walk all the time, up and down hills/steps/around the yard
No local Wendy's/Arby's/Burger King
Very little dairy intake

I haven't gotten on a scale, but I've definitely lost a significant amount of weight. Not Castaway caliber yet, but we'll see what else transpires. Unfortunately, I can't grow a scraggly beard like in the movie, but as you can see above, I can make fire. And I have a friend named Wilson, so we'll just have to wait and see.
