Feeling great!

Saturday, October 04, 2008

I'm not sure what actually caused the change, but I felt great today!!! I Only did 30 minutes of strength training yesterday (instead of the 90 I'd been doing), and today I focused only on core strengthening in the pool, and then swam 1/2 a mile instead of a full mile. Then tonight, I was able to really enjoy going out to dinner and to a friend's house for a party. My DBF didn't have to drop me off at doors, I was comfortable walking from a reasonable parking space, and even STOOD around mingling for a bit, whereas previously, I've found a place to sit, and waited for people to come to me. I'm starting to feel more like a normal human being, instead of my weight being such an obvious disability. I have a long way to go, but tonight, I feel like I can conquer the world!!!

    I am very happy for you. I can relate to your story as well. Having lost some weight, I can feel the difference in just being able to stand and walk longer distances without feeling exhausted or frustrated. Keep up to great work!

    That is WONDERFUL! I'm so happy for you! It's such an incredible thing, to physically feel good. Many people take it for granted, but we know what it's like to not be healthy, to not have the strength, energy, or stamina to just STAND and visit, or walk from the parking lot. You are gaining health in leaps and bounds, and are such an inspiration to me. Way to go!
