I was 180 when diagnosed 5 years ago, dropped below 160 at one point, then said 'screw my GERD' and lifted weights seriously and reached 205lbs, then had a knee problem and significantly more GERD at the weights I was lifting, so I shifted to bodyweight exercises and am not unfortunately down to 170. Hoping not to lose anymore.
Funny thing was I still thought I was at least 185 or so and walking around like I was something, then had a Dr's appt. and found out I was 170, lol. If I didn't have GERD I'd be around 210lbs and probably powerlift a bit, but hey I guess that is life and those are the breaks...with GERD I am a different person. It made me realize...people with diseases aren't really 'different' than anyone else...they are us, but with bad luck. When I see someone in a wheelchair or having seizures, etc., I don't see them as that anymore, I see them as what they could be. Just like I imagine myself as what I would be without this - a 210lb sexy man. Life kind of puts limits on us here and there...nobody is fundamentally different, they have just been limited. Just like me.
I am still a bad ass on the inside though, hopefully :)
I am 6 feet even/
