I have a bum knee. When I walk up or down stairs I hear crunching in my knee and neck. The knee crunching started even before I was considered overweight. Being obese has of course made it worse. The crunching I feel in my neck when I bend my knee GROSSES ME OUT.
So I generally avoid stairs. Because of my knee. Oh, and because I am fat and the elevator is easier. ;-) Truth can be painful, right?
I bring this all up because Saturday night we went to see our daughter perform in a play. We were running late. The gracious, older woman who took our tickets suggested we sit in the balcony seating. She then (very politely) pointed out the elevator "in case I couldn't make it up the stairs".
I was mortified. And embarrassed And then a bit pissed off. I marched up those stairs with a vengeance. And went back down them when we left.....crunching and all.
I am motivated more than ever to lose the next 60lbs. To get closer to the 200 mark. To not be so fat people offer me the elevator.
