Mobility Gains
 
I'm curious about the gains in mobility that those of you have had since losing a significant amount of weight. Do you go up and down stairs easier, walk faster, sit more comfortably longer? What have you noticed that is easier for you since losing weight? I look forward to going up and down stairs like I used to when I was thin.

I was able to paint my own toenails this summer without having to hold my breath to keep my stomach out of the way. :o I also notice it's easier to move quickly and reach and bend with ease. :)

Stairs were never an issue for me, but I love being able to tie my shoes with ease. :laugh:

Yep! Tying my shoes is much easier! I still bribe my DD to paint my toenails though. :smile:

Definitely stairs, as well as just being on my feet for any length of time. I can pop up from being seated without even thinking about it now. I can get up and down off the floor without it being a big production.

Oh, that's a good one Carol. I, too, spend more time on the floor now because I don't have to spend too much energy getting back up.

Ahhh, the floor! Looking forward to that getting better also. I oftentimes get on the floor to play with my little "clients". I make sure no one is looking when I get myself back up to standing. :o

I remember having to hold onto something to get back up off of the floor.:o I am so glad I can do it fairly easily now. I also noticed I can climb stairs without getting out of breath. Painting toenails is much easier too. ;)

Forgive me for posting this picture again! But it illustrates exactly what staying slim with JUDDD does for my flexibility and mobility. It enables me to be a very hands-on Granny who has the strength and energy to carry her 3 year old granddaughter on piggy-back rides, and chases her all over the house with her little push toys, which she adores. "Chase me, Granny, chase me!"
