Today I weigh 130 lbs, which was my goal weight when I created my SparkPeople ticker! GOAL ACHIEVED!
I forgot that had been my goal, and I've since increased to goals. Before my open heart surgery weight gain, I weighed 125-6 lbs and never really thought about my weight. Now I'd like to slim down a bit more, and keep working on my muscle tone. I'm mostly pretty comfortable with my body image now though. What a relief! I still have days of course of feeling unglamourous and pudgy but I'm mostly content.
At my heaviest weight I think I was 156 lbs, high on prednisone for my kidneys and junk food for my self-pity over my crazy illness.
My life is so much better now...my illness is still here but I'm strong enough now to live a full life as best I can, and I feel much more grounded and content with my days. A great guy, an alright career and some hobbies that make me happy. Life is good!
