Variable width stroke & anchor points [duplicate]

In Illustrator I have a heart shape and the last anchor point is on the upper left side (by that I mean the anchor point that joins everything together).

I would like to have a stroke that comes to a point at the bottom of the heart shape and is thick at the top of the heart shape.

To do this I thought I’d give the ‘Variable Width Profile” for strokes a go… but it finishes at the last / joining point at the upper top left which looks a bit crap.

enter image description here

Is there a way I can get it to finish at the base of the heart shape?

You might get some mileage out of the Width Tool, Shift+W. With this, you can set the width of a stroke manually instead of being dependent on a width profile.
