I wonder....

Monday, January 04, 2010

What would it feel like to know that whatever I wanted to do, my body would respond? No matter what I tried, my body would go where I want it to, do what I ask of it?

I cannot raise both of my legs at the same time, from a lying position. They are too heavy for me. I have to use my hands to help move them. I am not even 38 years old. That is simply ridiculous. It is ridiculous that I have let myself get to weak and out of shape that I have no core strength, no basic strength left. I do not trust myself to jump off anything -- whether it's the tailgate of the truck, a small curb on the street, a stair, anything. I never know if my feet will be where they are supposed to be.

I wonder what it will be like to know that my body is strong and capable, and I can trust it to do what I ask. I can't wait to know hwat it feels like to push my body to its limits.

    I wonder that too Karen.. Let's make a deal ok? Let's find out by doing whatever it takes to get ourselves back to the healthy people we use to be.

    Let's help each other.

    It will take time but we can do it.

    We have to know that we are worth it and we can do it.

    Start small! A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. So just put one foot in front of the other and soon you will be moving across the floor. The important thing is not to over do it and make it an unpleasant experience.
