    I've lost 21lbs bringing my weight from 186 to 165 (I'm 5'7'')
    Gone to the gym 4 times a week consistently,
    brought my resting heart rate down to 60 bps rather than almost 80

    I know most of the brolys won't care but I'm proud of what I've done, especially considering I had open heart surgery to replace a valve, fix a fucked up vein and put in a new defibrillator back in June of 2008. During this surgery I ended up having one of my vocal cords paralyzed so I couldn't talk in more than a whisper, the doctors told me that this was possibly permanent. I then became depressed and my weight skyrocketed to 210lbs, but around February 2009 my vocal cord spontaneously regenerated starting the positive chain of events that led to where I am today. So to reward myself I'm doing something that I've always wanted to do but my parents would never let me when I was younger. . .I'm taking a Kung Fu class.

    Thanks for all your positive support everyone. Right now over the summer I'm still trying to loose a bit more weight and get to around 10% body fat, then starting in the fall I'm going to start eating more to try and gain some muscle mass.
