The day before yesterday I had some errands to run. I wasn't looking forward to it because the building is at the top of a hill and I remember too well how hard that hill has been for me to climb. I have vivid memories of being short of breath, of finding excuses to stop for a break half-way up the hill. So with great trepidation, I started walking up the hill and lo and behold! I didn't get out of breath. It felt like nothing at all! I got to the top and got in to drop the stuff off and I didn't find it hard at all.
On the way home, I had to take the bus that stopped at the other end of our street. Again, we live on a hill so I was dreading trudging up the hill and arriving home breathless with sore legs from the hill and again I was surprised by how easy it was. It drove home how losing almost 50 lbs has improved my life!
