Alright you guys, I promised I’d post my starting stats for the Bangin’ and Swangin’ Challenge and the time is here.  I was a little apprehensive about posting my weight on the “internets” because I’ve put on some pounds in recent years.  But I’m just going to put myself out there, face my reality and
