Please help with this loop


#1

i have created this code which would take the input from the user and remove the largest and the smallest number from the input but it doesn't seem to work. I do get the largest value but not the minimum one. Please help.
largest = None
smallest = None
while True:
inp = raw_input("Enter a number: ")

#Cases
if inp == "done" : break


#Work over here
try:
    num = int(inp)
except:
    print "Invalid input"
continue

if smallest is None:
	smallest = num
elif num < smallest:
	smallest = num

if largest is None:
	largest = num
elif num > largest:
	largest = num

print "Maximum is", largest
print "Minimum is", smallest
