Something New Happened

I am so excited!! For the first time in 20 years, I was able to cross my legs. I don't really get how, because I am still pretty heavy, but I did it. Maybe it's the working out - I don't know and I don't really care. I was just thrilled that I could do it.

It was so weird, I was sitting in the living room and I was feeling really comfortable. I looked down and my legs were crossed and I did not even know I had done it. It was so natural. I was so excited I went around to different chairs to see if I could do it again and I could. It is great to be able to sit like a proper lady, instead of always trying to hold my legs together, which is not very comfortable. Or I would sit on one leg and that's not comfortable at all and probably not good for your leg circulation.

I love discovering new things that I can do. Each day I find out a little bit more. Helps keep me motivated to keep going!!

How long has it been since you've been able to cross your legs? Try it!!



  1. I so remember my first time crossing my legs! It was a mini victory along the weight loss journey! So exciting!

  2. Hi Lindsay, Thank you for your comment! I just got done reading your story. What fantastic success you've had. Congratulations!! Your story has given me hope as I have a lot of weight to lose. I too am doing it sensibly ~ good healthy diet and exercise. I have a dream - I want to row on a rowing team, at the Senior Olympics, when I'm fifty. I've got some work to do!!!

    I like your 3 word idea. I will work on that and see what I come up with. I will follow your progress. I know you will get those 25 pounds off!! Hugs!

  3. That is awesome! Congratulations! It is the small things that count, and this sure seems like quite a miles stone. You might still be far from your goal, but don't minimize what you have already accomplished.
