Dear fergy,

Congratulations and well done. For those who do not realise, 14kg is 30.8 pounds. What a team, both you and Ruth, it needs both of your commitment and your effort. I will pass this on to the team and to Ruth.

That is a triumph and is not always as easy as the thin folk in the world might think.

Keep going.

Best wishes,
