I'm a 28 year old male, 6 ft, just under 160 lbs, and it has been my life Long quest to put on more weight. I am currently the heaviest I have ever been. When I was born, my large intestine, and 1/2 of my small were removed due to complications. So I have a hard time absorbing food and vitimains and the like into my body. I've always eaten whatever I like, without any issues. However, with my condition, the most I eat, the more I go to the washroom...and with this condition I go a lot! It sucks but i don't know a life without it. In The past couple years I have started working out moderately and improving my diet (just because you feel better eating real food), and I have had some success. Just four years ago, I was a very thin 120 lbs. I look at myself now as a big improvement, but always compare myself to the average guy, and can't help but think that I'm still too thin. If anyone has any knowledge of what I'm dealing with, any support would be awesome (and yes, I know my condition is extremely rare). FYI, I have a form of short bowel syndrome, but I am a fully functioning person, and most people don't know this side of me. Hope to get some feedback. I know it's a long shot that someone on here may be dealing with the same thing as me, but it's worth a shot.
