Default I bent over and buckled up my sandals!

It wasn't a goal per se, but hey it used to be one of the things that reminded me on a daily basis that I must lose weight. At times I would not wear shoes that matched my outfit simply because the ones that matched had a buckle and because of my extra big tummy I could not reach my feet and buckled them up. Some days I'd wear them half buckled hoping no one would notice and yet...
So scale or no scale, this is one of the milestones on my way and I've walked it away!

Nowadays I've been buckling without even thinking about it twice. I must be grateful for this though, it was such a torture to bend over and pick anything on the floor, etc...I'm grateful!

NSVs like this are huge accomplishments on our journey!! I saw a pair of slip-on sneakers on clearance the other day that I almost bought. Then I remembered I don't "have" to wear slip-on shoes anymore and that I *can* bend over to tie my shoelaces when/if I need to. Of course, I will always wear flipsflops, etc. but there was a time that I had to, that I couldn't reach my feet without gasping for air and praying I didn't split my pants open trying to stretch that far.

Apparently this post really tugged at my own heartstrings, I'm so happy for you!

Congrats! Today was the first time in a long time I was able to bend over at the waist and tie my shoes :-) Small things most people take for granted!
