"I didn't know tennis shoes still existed!"


Sunday, November 18, 2012

Well, of all the things!

I didn't know that tennis shoes existed anymore! Not really. I knew they were still around, but just not for me. I've worn flip-flops for so many years that my feet were starting to look exactly like them!

Well, another non-scale victory was discovered yesterday by my husband, just for me....

He said that we were going tennis shoes shopping for me and wasn't going to quit until we found a pair for me to use when I went for my walks , even if a lot of the times I only was able to make it to the end of our driveway and back!

Well to my surprise, I was able to sit down on the bench in the store, bend over and put my own socks on, put my own tennis shoes on, and tie my own shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This is an accomplishment that I still never thought would happen for me! If my DH had not led me, I would never have gone there and never have know that I could have done it!

I now plan on wearing my new walking shoes along with my "new jeans" from my Halloween plan I blogged about and then wear a size large (not 7x) tee shirt and walk our driveway maybe more than just 1 time in a day!

During this Thanksgiving season, I have so much to be thankful for!

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you! If I can do it, I know that you can do anything you set your mind to!

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!
