Week 005 – Day 022
So I have lost 49.8 lbs in the past three weeks! It is near enough to 50 lost, so I have begun my walking today. I have not been able to walk due to my legs being so swollen, and being in so much pain in my legs, knees, and back. That plus I could not breath when doing so. I felt completely helpless. The group I am in has significantly been working on walking across America… and I noticed that most everyone was exceeding 10,000 steps per day on the reports we turn in for distance. Here I am sitting at 3000 a day, and I was happy I could do that. I now know I should push myself more. Again, with 50 lbs lost…. (49.8 that is)… I endeavor to make 10,000 steps happen by day 5 of this week! Yesterday I began my walking… and I felt pretty good! I reached my goal distance for yesterday, and I wasn’t in pain, or out of breath… I could walk again! I take that back… for whatever reason… since yesterday I have had a GOUT attack in my left foot….which is painful to state the least. However…. the normal pains I had felt that I was feeling helpless about have now disappeared! I almost feel human! Anyway… as I came to the distance I had planned yesterday, I was feeling great, so I continued on for quite a distance… until I felt worn. I can tell you tomorrow I will indeed feel my actions of today. I also went swimming with my granddaughter, and worked out my upper body as I brought my arms behind me, with my arms out on the water, palms no like paddles, then pushing with great vigor the water forward, creating great forward current in the pool. I did this until I felt cramping in my arms and chest….. about 15 minutes straight. Then I was able to play with my Granddaughter thereafter… which was a workout in itself… lol.
