Congratulations Bolas!!!!!
You are inspiration to me. I'm exercising 3 times a week & I'm eating right. I have lost 12 pounds with much much more to lose. Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations! Just being able to say "I feel good," is quite an accomplishment. I smile when I think of how delighted your wife will be with your surprise. Have fun!

I mentioned it to DH and we both had a giggle. I was wondering how to tactfully explain...

I googled shag and found out that there are a number of dances called shags and that to dance them is shagging. I had no idea.

Then, you PLUS me = the same!....It's just a dance move that my mother & her friends enjoyed way-back-when. They ALL did the "shag" dance here in the US....just a bit funny how a word here can mean something quite different elsewhere. Again, I am all American, &, the term was meant in fun jest!
Bolas - can't help but wonder how your dancing evening went...shagging or no...still hope that you got a chance to "WOW your gal"!!!

Merl It was fun, I told my wife yesterday afternoon so she could get ready, What am I going to wear was the cry which was good as she did not focus on the whispered DINNER Dance, I only ate the Vegetarian main course option which was quite good and no booze. I put my soft knee support on, I fitted into one of my old suits which was a bonus if a bit snug still. Unfortunately the shag was not on the dance menu but the horizontal rumba was the last dance of a splendid evening

The first 10 week phase of my diet ends tonight, I have lost 31.5 lbs and the best thing apart from how great I feel is my man boobs have reduced from a floppy DD to a rather fetching and pert A
I now move up from 1200 cals a day to 1800 for the next 5 weeks by then I should be able to excersise in the gym fully. I put the gloves on and did a couple of rounds of sparring yesterday which hurt but I loved it, because of the probs with my right hand I am learning to use the south paw stance which left me wide open and starry eyed, I got caught with a beautiful right hook at the end of the second that even with a head guard on shook me to my pumps and I could not get up for the third
My wife gave me a terrible verbal bashing when I got home and wants to fight the guy herself

Congratulations on your weight loss! Sorry about your boxing bout, but your stamina and reflexes will improve with more exercise... and it would help if you stop hitting his glove with your face...
