Reason #4 to lose weight - shoes .... and socks, too. Trying to put on shoes or socks as an obese person is not easy!! It was REALLY hard when I weighed 282 pounds. I couldn't bend straight over to put them on - it was painful, and I would feel like I was going to pass out! I would have to kind of bend at the side, try to reach down with one hand, and.....you know what?? I can't even really explain it - I would have to show you!! Anyway, when I lost the 30 pounds it did get a little easier. Now, I can bend straight over - a little - but I have to make sure my foot meets me halfway by putting it up on the ottoman, or like on the the second or third stair! So, it will be nice to be able to put on socks and shoes like a normal size person.
And don't let me see any of you checking out how I put my shoes on next time I'm at your house for a visit!!:)
