Get Shredded!
Brother...
Forget about size and weight...
Most important thing is to recover and then work on getting that heart healthy back..
I was less than 160 a month ago..as long as you die, you'll get it back..

I have been eating a lot but I am not regaining any weight...I urinate constantly even though I have stopped taking lasix 2 weeks ago...if I drink 32oz of water I urinate 64 oz...my skin is very wrinkled and saggy... occasionally i will be so dehydrated that I feel faint...I see the cardiologist on November 8...

My morning bp is around 95/60... evening bp is around 105/65...I normally have a lower bp...however I have had morning bp as low as 80/50...I am taking meds designed to lower bp in order to help my heart to heal...I've been doing a lot of walking getting up to about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile with no pain or shortness of breath...in fact, for about 9 months prior to my heart attack i would be slightly short of breath during walking...I also had a slight arrythmia where my heart would skip a beat every 5-6 beats...I now have a normal pulse around 60-70 beats a minute...my sternum is still tight and coughing or sneezing hurts...I also have been having very vivid nightmares...hmmm!...
