A while ago, someone asked me what things I could do now that I'm a third of the way to my goal. I've decided to start writing posts addressing these things. They normally come up one at a time, so this will be an ongoing theme.
When Claire and I were registering for wedding gifts, I was upset because I couldn't find a towel that would wrap all the way around me. I was determined to find one out there because I wanted to register for things that fit my body. No such luck. I was stuck with my bathrobe. Everything was too small to wrap around my waist. The other day I got out of the shower and grabbed one of Claire's towels since my robe was in the bedroom. The towel fit comfortably around my waist! I can now wear a towel out of the shower. It's a small thing, but exciting nonetheless.
I'm also capable of going up a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing (too much). I'm running without destroying my knees, which is also fantastic.
One last thing. I found an article on ADHD and obesity. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 10 and this article expresses a lot of the difficulties I've faced. Take a look.
