So I am beginning to see some tangible benefits from my weight loss efforts (other than being able to report progress on this blog anyway). I have begun to notice that going up stairs is getting a lot easier.
At my heaviest climbing the three flights to my apartment was not a pleasant experience – my knees screamed in agony, and my lungs couldn’t figure out why the hell they were being asked to work so hard. But lately I have noticed I am able to bound up them more easily, even trotting up from time to time. And by the time I get there, my knees aren’t aching, my heart doesn’t feel like it is going to leap out of my chest and my lungs now barely whimper in protest.
All of this and I’m only 1/3 of the way to my goal.
I am really looking forward to future improvements…like being able to bend over to tie my shoes without holding my breath, and fitting into the clothes I have been patiently saving waiting for the day I would lose enough weight to fit into them again.
I know that it won’t be long before I will be able to again stun the ladies with my awesome denim leisure suit, seagull printed silk shirt, platform shoes, and puka shells!!! Oh yeah!!!
All for now!!!
