100 lb. Club - NSV - Putting away the Christmas decorations

Even though packing everything up and putting away for another year is kind of sad, this year I was energized during the process:

First, that I was able to store all of the Christmas decorations in the attic that I've never been in. When I bought this house, noted that there were fold down stairs to the attic but that weight limit was 250 lbs. Last Christmas I was down to 210 but thought carrying boxes might result in too close to the weight limit. This year at 160, no worries.

Second, I have gained so much fitness and flexibility that crouching, kneeling, lifting, etc was no problem. Felt a bit of a burn in my thighs but nothing more than any of my workouts.

I was actually grinning after completing this chore.

Any chores you can now do that you couldn't when you started your weight loss?

Wow. congrats, I wanna get to where you are. There are many chores I can't do...but am getting closer just from the stretching. I love knowing the things to look forward to- thanks for posting this NSV!
