Lung transplant!

It's been a while again since my last post. Health update is as follows oxygen while awake, I'm going to try O-fev, pulmonary rehab, and lose weight. I have begun the evaluation process for a lung transplant I think my biggest obstacle will be the weight loss. I've struggled with obesity my entire life currently weigh in at 198.8 pounds. I need to be under 169. I have been stable for 15 years now with my weight as I quit dieting 16 years ago. I yoyo'd so much I drop 20 gain 40 now I need to get it off and keep it off. Complying with the very stringent rules for a possibility of a lung I may never get or that I may get and reject..scary. Fear has kept me from doing many things in my life. Really all I have to lose is weight...flip side continue on as is and hope for a future that one illness can take away. I hope everyone is doing pleasingly awesome! Right now its 9:50 am central time, raining a nice spring rain, and its Friday. Everyone have a great weekend!
