Roger:Ann, you look stunning! What’s your secret?
Ann:Oh, thank you, Roger! I’ve been trying to get back into shape after the long winter months.
Roger:Tell me about it! Actually, I’ve been bad at keeping my training routine lately. I really need to get rid of a spare tire.
Ann:I think you are too hard on yourself, especially taking into account that you had a knee injury not so long ago.
Roger:You are right! Although I am not as fit as a fiddle, I am glad to be back on my feet. And, I just got a clean bill of health from my doctor!
Ann:Congratulations! That’s a good sign that you have fully recovered.
