When I was at my top weight traveling was not fun. If I were to travel at 280 lb they would probably make me buy two airline seats. I went to Orlando from Minnesota four years ago... Read more

OMG, I forgot how I looked only 4 years ago, at my top weight of 280. One thing I cannot forget is how much pain carrying all that weight caused. I felt greatly improved when I got down to about 240. At one point I was down to 180 but now am ... Read more

Feet got cramps and are still sore today. I think it might be partly my new shoes. I noticed the right heel slipped a lot and that foot hurt the most. I am going to try different shoes today and see if that helps. I walked over an hour as my... Read more

I really like my new swimming pool... 84 degrees feels great, no shock getting in and I am sure I will go more often. The hours are a little restricted compared to my previous gym, but there are lap times when few people are there and no kids. ... Read more

I don't know what kind of shoes to wear anymore....I am still getting used to the arch supports doctor gave (sold for $52) me. Bought some new shoes but am breaking those in, too. One of these days my feet won't hurt...... Read more

Last night was a bad night with a toothache waking me up. Wouldn't it be nice to be healthy and be pain free? I was talking to a lady at work about my dental problems and she said, "You know what causes that, don't you?" She answered herself,... Read more

Took advantage of the beautiful weather on Sunday and walked around Lake Harriet (about 2.7 miles). It took me a whole hour (rested half way around) but felt really good afterward. Still looking for new shoes but remembered I have some Z-coils... Read more

On Sunday and Saturday this last weekend I walked 2 miles a day, first outside to go for a haircut, then indoors at the gym on the treadmill. I found myself wanting to stop after the first 20 minutes on the treadmill, but outdoors I had a purpo... Read more

I am going to try to walk 2 miles a day every day. I really have no excuse. I have a treadmill, the city built a 1 mile blacktopped (soft) sidewalk on the frontage road by my house last fall so it is safe to walk (at least in the daytime) and m... Read more

He had a job (only 9 hours a week) and then was cut down to 3 hours a week, so he quit and starting applying for jobs and going to job fairs again. I am having a problem being optimistic about his finding a job (he is 73 now). He keeps telling... Read more
