I was visiting with a friend today (who happens to be my landlord) she's 70 years old and morbidly obese.  We got to talking weighty issues and she was shocked to learn that I weigh almost 170 lbs.  I was reading through some of the blogs out here and can't help but notice that the weight I want to lose is a relativly small number.  Everyone that I've clued into my "lifestyle change" thinks I'm crazy and I look fine the way I am.  Yes, I do. 5'10" and 170lbs isn't bad. I am actually happy with the way I look, however most of the weight I want to lose aren't just "vanity pounds" as my best friend called it.  I was in a car accident when I was 18, my back was broken.  Hairline fractures in both my L1 and L2 vertebrae, which left me paralized for about 6 weeks.  When the swelling went down and the cracks started to heal I then began the process of learning to walk again. All is said and done, I can walk, albeit rather ungracefully, but I was left with 2 herniated disks in my lower back.  160 is my happy weight.  I know when I start to creep above that because the extra weight puts preassure on my back and leaves me in pain.  So yes, the 10 lbs that will bring me down to 160 is for health reasons, but the other 14 are for vanity.
  So for all of you that have made it this far in my entry, and have alot more to go, I thank you for reading and wish you luck in all of your endeavors.
