How I know this is good for me

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Yesterday we had a snowstorm. For my area, it was the first amount of significant snow. While I love looking at it, I don't enjoy shoveling it. Plex and I have a tiny electric snowblower which really isn't good on anything more than 3". Well, yesterday we got over 12". So out came the shovels.

Now normally I go out to shovel, get about 1/4 through the driveway and have to come back in. I can't breathe, my back hurts, my hands hurt, and my head starts to hurt. Today, I got none of this! I was out there almost 2 hours, finished the driveway AND the walkway, and I feel great! I didn't lose my breathe, I don't hurt anywhere in my body and my head isn't hurting either. I am feeling so good about this!

This is what losing 40 pounds did for me. I feel so pumped up now! Now to hit a shower....

    We are similar. I was diagnosed D2 around June of this year. I had lost over 40 pounds using Sparkpeople, originally to get by blood pressure down. Thought I wasn't going to have to take bp meds, and then diagnosed with D2. Battling the weight issue and balancing nutrition is now at the forefront of my life. I would rather be pre-occupied with some other things to do.
    I take it you are in the north. Where abouts? I grew up in Canada for a little beyond high school, so I know whats that like first person.
    Nice meeting you. Happy New Year's Eve eve.
