I recall having a very hard time getting around when I weighed well over 100 pounds more than I do now. I had no sense of balance, I couldn't stay on my feet long without being in a ridiculous amount of pain, I had bad anxieties about shopping and walking around others, and climbing in and out of vehicles was especially difficult.
So while on a shopping trip yesterday, I marveled at being able to try on shoes without needing a bench to sit on. I was on my feet for hours without any pain. I passed by other people in the aisles with very little thought or effort. And when I was ready to head home and went back to the parking lot? Someone had parked way too close to the driver's side of my car. It was so tight there was no way I could open the door enough to get inside, even when I folded my side mirror in! I momentarily thought of going back to the store to complain and have the drive paged, but then I realized I could probably climb in from the passenger's side. Oh sure, I had to climb over the center console, the parking brake, and the shift stick, which is difficult enough for any tall person, but I could still give it a shot, right? So I very carefully kneeled down into the passenger seat, closed the door, and climbed over all the obstacles so I could twist around and settle in. And I suddenly realized . . . there's no way I could have accomplished that even last year when I was only 30 pounds heavier than now.
The best part? I'm currently 38 week pregnant!
That is all.
