Today I walked 5 miles, at a moderate/brisk pace, non-stop.
It was the longest distance I have walked, without stopping, in the past 20 years and I did it without back pain, I did it with a smile on my face.
For anyone who is restricted by their weight and cannot exercise or walk without severe pain, you will understand about my milestone today. You will understand that being able to walk 5 miles is just about the best thing one could ever wish for.
I went to the track to try and walk 3 miles but when I reached 3 miles I wanted to get to 4 miles so I kept on walking and then at 28 laps, when I had walked 4 miles I wanted to walk 5 miles, so again I just kept going and when I got to 5 miles the “sports centre” was getting ready to shut up for the night so I stopped…
I’m feeling so shocked but elated tonight that I managed to walk that far, I really just want other people to know, who are restricted by their weight like I was, just how good this feels and all it took was 5 months of my life, losing 51 lbs and walking a little bit more every day.
Am VERY emotional about this tonight. I REALLY want you to know what it feels like.
Much love and hugs
