I will not lie, today I have shed a few tears, on several occasions. Today I managed to do my first proper hike in 23 years, pain free. I am so happy and overcome with emotion about it all.
10 months ago, the extent of my walking was becoming limited in distance from the car park to the store and even that was so painful. My back which was suffering with a horrible lower crushing pain because of the huge amount of extra weight being carried on my torso..
I cannot explain to you fully just how liberating my new found freedom feels. This has to be one of the happiest days of my life in recent years.
I hiked 7 km today over rough terrain and the experience was amazing.
I’m not sure who to thank for this second chance but incase I ever should think about returning to my old eating habits I made this video diary complete with personal thoughts, so I would remember this day and NEVER put the weight I’ve already lost, back on.
