Spent over a year below my goal weight was in the best shape of my life. I was walking 3-4 miles a day and doing great had successfully quit smoking for over 3 years at that point. Then I torn my rotator cuff and did physical therapy for 3 months with no relief so my doctor was set to schedule surgery. Before he could operate I had a heart attack out of the blue.
After the heart attack I had to wait a year to come off blood thinners long enough to get surgery. So after a year of being weakened, physically and mentally, by the heart attack and dragging my dominant arm around in pain I packed on 50 pounds (I like to think of it as bubble wrap for my heart)
After surgery in January 2014 it took until July or August before I could use my arm fully. So now I no longer have excuses I'm finally working my way back down.
