  • [ – ] robertmahoney1967 reply Good luck Jeff. You will do it. I believe in you.
  • [ – ] TheSmusher reply Sorry to see you looking like that but I know you will and are getting it together. The exciting part will be seeing you maintain your weight loss once you get their, and I know you will get their. Just a matter of time.
  • [ – ] ExcalibursZone reply Walking got to be difficult for me after the military due to marcher's heel (compacted bones due to slamming down your foot for the "tromp" sound), issues with shin splints, and tendinitis in my Achilles tendons. I used to walk all the time, but when combat boots were added...hooo boy. I understand the pain. I guess, as the joke goes, this is the agony of defeat, eh? :)
    • [ – ] WalkingForWeightLoss parent reply I'm sorry it's like that for you. I have customized orthopedics. If you ever get into walking and if you have health care or the ability to afford it, I think it would be a good idea to see a foot specialist and find out if there's anything they can get you.
      • [ – ] ExcalibursZone parent reply I have custom orthopedics as well and they help tremendously! Especially with the marcher's heel. The other stuff? I have to live with it, unfortunately. :\ I used to walk and run everywhere as a kid. I guess the boots and marching screwed that up for me.
        • [ – ] WalkingForWeightLoss parent reply Dang. I hope they take measures to prevent that now. You mentioned access to a pool. Is that at your own home or at an apartment building or community pool or local swimming spot?
          • [ – ] ExcalibursZone parent reply We have a gym membership that I don't like using, but my son and I go to the pool from time to time. I'm going to try to use our membership more by taking him to the pool a few times a week and also to walk the track they have there. I'm a ginger so walking outdoors without adequate protection all the time means I walk away with blisters on my skin. Not a happy thing for me, living in the southern US.
