The Redhead Posted April 19, 2008 Report Share Posted April 19, 2008 A couple of weeks before my surgery I was walking up the stairs to get to my office at work. It's only one floor up with about 5 stairs, a platform and about 15 more stairs. Usually the stairs don't bother me too much but I do feel it in my knees by the time I get to the top. This day I was carrying my briefcase, my laptop, my purse and a bunch of other stuff. Probably at least about 30 - 35 lbs in total. By the time I got to my office I thought I was going to die!! My back, legs, shoulders, knees and arms were killing me. I plopped down in my chair to rest and thought... WAIT A MINUTE.... (at that time) I was like 70 lbs overweight. The weight I packed up that day was like half the excess weight I carry up those stairs every day. Imagine what life will be like when you drop all that excess baggage you're packing around. For some of us that's like packing around one or two large pieces of fully packed luggage all day. I'm looking forward to the day when the heaviest thing I carry up those stairs is my purse and not my butt! I'll be running those stairs. ...and I plan to do it in heels and a classy new wardrobe.
