      "When I stepped on the scale at 
my doctor’s office, I was surprised 
to see that I weighed 144 pounds.

      'Why don’t you just take off 
that last four?' I joked to the nurse’s 
aide as she made a notation on 
my chart.

      A few moments later, my doctor came in and flipped through the chart.

      'I see you’ve lost weight,' he said. 'You’re down to 14 pounds.'"
