Down another 4.4 pounds. That is a total of 24.7 pounds in 66 days - 2.5 pounds a week. Not too bad. I am 2.3 pounds above what I weighted after my strike 5 years ago - that is my next goal.
It is kind of scary that I gained over 25 pounds in the 5 years since my stroke. I know that I can tell myself that it was because I couldn't do a lot, but I would be lying to myself. It is because I was being lazy and just sitting on my butt.
I have become a stay at home person, and don't get out of the house unless I have a ride. That is not good. I make the excuse that I don't have a comfortable pair of walking shoes, and I hate trying to find a pair because the last 4 pairs I bought turned out to be uncomfortable. I have tried
* Crocs - comfortable most times, but not for long walks
* Skechers - comfortable at first, but the tops of two of my toes rub and wearing band-aids is a PITA, and I have foot pain while walking. Tried 2 different styles and have the same result.
* New Balance - comfortable at first, but the same rubbing problem though to a lesser degree.
* Performance Clogs - very comfortable, my everyday shoes, but not good for long walks
Part of the problem is my size 12 feet, wide feet - pretty much I have to buy mens shoes because almost no one carries women's walking shoes that big. I can order ones in my size online at a couple of places, but that means shipping them back if they don't fit.
My next thought is the Gravity Defyer because they give you a free 30 day trial and they have all kinds of good reviews. I will keep you posted.
