Other Noticeable Changes

Just a quick post today as I am getting ready to run out the door to go to an art thingy with a friend of mine.

I’ve written about changes that I have noticed in how I look, thinner face, fitting into booths at restaurants, and walking, but there are many other changes that I have noticed since my remarkable 60 pound weight loss.

1. Putting on my shoes – I have noticed that I putting on my shoes and socks is much easier.  I can now put my left foot up onto my right knee while sitting in a chair.  I could not do that before.  I would have to sit on the bed so that I had room to spread out just to put on my shoes and socks.  I am much more flexible now.

2. Pain – The back pain I suffered from is nearly completely gone.  I still have some pain now and then, but the excruciating back pain from just standing or walking is gone.  My feet also do not hurt as much.

3. Sleep – I am sleeping much more soundly, but I am still using the c-pap machine.

4. Movement – All movement is much easier.  Bending over is easier.  Getting up and down from the floor when I’m playing games with my niece.  Getting in and out of the shower.  Going up and down stairs is much easier.

Overall, I just feel so much better.  Other people have commented that I seem happier, bubblier than before.  I have more energy than before and I really do enjoy getting out of the house to do things.  I am definitely happy that I have made this change in my life even though sometimes it has been difficult.
