G'day Gershon … if you're trying to break a record then you don't spoil that returning. It would be so disheartening - thank you Gershon - Lindsay

G'day Timothy … I think this might fit a lot of people. I think I'm allergic to gyms so I don't want to take the risk of being in one - thanks Timothy - Lindsay

Never thought about that Janice. It could mean not being able to afford so many chocolates though - thanks Janice - Lindsay

That's right Tom, opposite to the other claim 'my clothes are shrinking' - thanks Tom - Lindsay
