    The best problem I've ever had

    I've posted elsewhere on here about my gut problem. If you don't know what it is, content yourself with the knowledge that I've had it for a long time and it's extremely unpleasant.

    Well, an update: something's been getting better lately. Want to know how I know? I currently weigh over 200 pounds for the first time ever.

    For about 8 years previously, I weighed between 175 and 185--always. My weight might as well have been a physical constant. Which sounds great, right? I mean, who wouldn't love to have the problem that they can't gain weight? Believe me when I say that you don't want my problem.

    So I can gain weight now. I was sitting in my room a few weeks ago with my shirt off, and I looked down and said, "What in the heck is this?!" I had flab--flab!--this was unprecedented.

    My gut problem isn't totally gone; I still occasionally have bad bouts, but it's definitely better. Now I have to watch what I eat, not just because it'll bloat me and make me miserable, but because my weight isn't constant anymore. Rejoice!

    That happened to me as well.
    I'm working towards getting back down to 190.
    Actually YOU put Trump in the White House. He wouldn't have gotten 1% of the vote if it wasn't for the widespread spiritual and cultural devastation caused by progressive policies. There's no "this country" left with your immigration policies, your "allies" are worthless and even more suicidal than you are and democracy is a sick joke that I hope nobody ever thinks about repeating when the current order collapses. - Darth_Executor striking a conciliatory note in Civics 101

    Y'all probably have no idea how grateful I am to be getting a little bit on the fat side. It's wonderful.

    When I was sick I had lost down to 150. I wish I could have stayed there, but now that I am healthy my weight has climbed back to 200. I need to lose about 50 and can't seem to do it no matter what I do.

    That might be medicine related Sparky. If your liver is healthy and you're on anti rejection drugs, eating well and our HA1C is at a good number, then exercise, a healthy diet, is the best you can do. Be proud of yourself and thankful to God like we are for your life. We are thankful to have you around.
