LOL-that's an excellent start! For all the work they are, they certainly do often seem surplus to requirements! @kmkjmomma-I'm lucky in that I'm not heavy all over, just in the middle/upper body. I have fairly good legs, really. @Fullabella, you're right, of course, it wouldn't hover around this weight so much if it weren't about to plummet, I just have to wait it out. I am not, however, the most patient person on the planet, believe it or not! LOL!
