I lost over 85 pounds after being diagnosed with CHF and started to loose fluid from the Lasix. I am now 195# on a 6' 3" frame and I am happy with that. My weight has remained the same since getting my ICD, but I am very careful what and how much I eat. Low salt and fat meals almost all of the time now.

It'd be nice to have a SPAM button.
