How big is too big? I am about 5'10 and 166lbs. Before HIV I was a steady 150, never over that. I will turn 50 next month and I have been HIV+ for 21 years now and my doctors have always told me that more weight is good, yet I don't feel good at this weight. My body has a high metabolism and most likely would return to that weight if I stopped the marinol and began eating meals on time. for thte last 8 years my viral load has been undetectable and my T-Cells have been over 200, or there abouts. Thank you in advance for your hlep in this matter it is greatly appreciated.
