Congrats on hitting the 400 mark. I thought for a while about trying to hit 500, but lost some weight and some of the force I need to get there for now. Plus my work schedule makes hitting the DL's frequently enough to make the gains I need.

Best of luck getting that 4th big plate on there, it is a great feeling when you get it.
