When I did the previous entry, I said Cliff had lost 80 pounds, which was wrong. He's lost around 70, I think. But that is over a two-year period. When he came out of surgery a year ago, he weighed 230 - 232. So in the time since the surgery, he has lost twenty-five pounds. That's pretty reasonable for a year's weight loss, I think. It was the year before his open-heart surgery that he really lost a lot.
As far as how he looks, I wouldn't care if he lost any more weight. 220 was fine with me. However, in the research I've done, the less you weigh, the less work your heart has to do. And keep in mind that there was some damage to his heart, although his heart is compensating for it, the doctor said.
Cliff just wants, for once in his life, to weigh 200. If he should continue to lose weight after he reaches his goal, I'll give him bigger portions. Trust me, it won't be hard to get him to eat more! (He'd be the first to tell you, though, that he's never hungry. He takes in about 2,500 calories a day.)
