After my hysterectomy, I gained excess weight through grief eating. I went back up to 270 lbs. which is ar too big for my frame. Today, I walked 3.75 miles at 254 pounds. I didn't think I could walk a 20 minute mile. For the average healthy weighted person, it is not a big deal. For me, it is an achievement. I am still in shock and will aim for 4 miles next month. Wooo hooo! I still have it in me!
