I finally got a rollator today. It's a walker on wheels kind of thing that I can use on the bad days. It also converts to a wheel chair for the bad bad days. I'm hoping that this will give me more confidence to try to get out and walk and not be afraid that I'm going to fall down. I used to walk 3 miles every day. Not only did I love walking but I loved being outdoors and it was good therapy to help with the depression. When I was no longer able to do that I just got more and more depressed. These four walls have been closing in on me and my world has gotten really small. I spend most of my time on Facebook. I'm a social creature and being home 24/7 can be the pits. Anyway, I just wish I could get motivated to get back to a healthy lifestyle. Get back on Sparkpeople which I always LOVED and get back to life. I'm trying! I really am! One huge motivation is the impending birth of my long-awaited first grandchild due 3 weeks from today. I need to try to get healthy and be here for her if I don't feel able to do it for myself.
