My shopping trip yesterday with my daughter was wonderful! She found exactly what she was looking for and she is going to be beautiful! I finally found a pretty ,sparkly royal blue jacket and shell and black pants. What really surprised me was the pants were a size 16W !! So that was exciting. But I think the most exciting part of the day was that I walked and shopped for 8 hours before I had to get my scooter out. My knees didn't hurt at all and still don't today. My thighs muscle are sore but no knee pain. YAY!!! So Im going to start walking around my neighborhood again. I have been really hesitant because I don't know I have over done it until the next day then my knees are sore for weeks. But this has given my hope that I can start walking again. Also I looked up all the calories before we went to the restaurants yesterday so I stayed well within my calorie range! I also dropped a shoe size too and found some shoes to wear that aren't sneakers!
My new goal is to be able to wear "normal" sizes by spring time. I also have set a goal to walk 3 miles by then too!
All of this weight and everything I have accomplished would not have happened without my friends at SP! I thank all of you for your encouragement and help. I love to read about every ones successes. It really gives me hope that I can do it to.
