Personal Changes

  When I started doing the yard work at the beginning of this summer, I knew I had to do it. There really wasn’t anyone else. When I finished one task… just ONE, be it the mowing, the edging, the hedges… all I could do for at least two hours after was sit and drink water. My legs hurt, my back hurt, my arms felt like they were shaking apart.
   I don’t feel like that now. Four months later, I can finish one thing, sit for a half an hour, and go on with what I need to do. Yeah, I am still a little tired out and hot and sweaty, but I don’t ache. I will be able to finish my laundry after mowing the lawn. I may even do the edging. That will leave Saturday afternoon for the hedges and roses, and weeding a bit.
   Positive change. Between January and July, I lost about fifty pounds. FIFTY! After years of fighting to lose any at all. For the first time in YEARS, I am wearing my own wedding set, instead of wearing my great-grandmother’s wedding band as a place holder. I have more energy. I am, for the most part, sleeping better. I’ve had less really bad migraines in the last nine months than in a single month before that time. I am walking more often. Taking pictures. Trying to catch up on projects I didn’t have the energy or inclination to deal with before.
