"Hoisting" Furniture Like a Pro

Monday, April 07, 2014

I have a joy to report, people...

While I did not resort back to good old days of hoisting large hunks of furniture over the shoulders, I did manage to carefully and strategically move a rather large chest up two flights of stairs all by myself. And without pain or damage!

This is a big deal because a month ago I could not even think of doing this on the knee following surgery. But with time, and patience, and plenty of late 30's style stretching, I am well on my way to recovery.

I may not measure up like I used to, but I am feeling stronger than I was was a month ago. And, as a matter of fact, two years ago, when I was at my heaviest, I don't think I could have moved that piece, or chased after my little girl, or even taken three flights of stairs with relative ease as I now can. I am making progress, people, and I am proud of myself.

    That is awesome! It's amazing how capable our bodies are - and how we take so much of that away by putting on weight. Yet, look how great you feel now with losing the weight & getting the knee repaired... soon you'll feel like Superman!

    Keep up the excellent work!
