I had an observation yesterday as I carried about 3 bags of groceries up the stairs in our home. The bags probably weighed around 30 lbs total, which is about how much weight I've lost. I realized I'd basically been carrying those bags everywhere, all the time. Quite a sobering reminder how much extra exertion is truly required for everyday tasks (like stairs) when you're overweight. I can't imagine what it's going to feel like to lose another 30 lbs, and 60 lbs will have me bouncing off the walls--or at least, bounding up the stairs. I keep my Jenny Craig meals in the freezer in our garage and I only permit myself to retrieve one thing at a time so I have the stairs at least 4 times a day. But we also have a flight up to the bedrooms so my house is turning into a damn workout, lol. Anyway, I wondered if anyone else has had any sudden realizations or moments like this?

We need better fast food options
Healthier choices are there like soups, it's really up you to pay close attention while ordering.
