Day 217 – I fit! ….


          As I surveyed the library at today’s faculty meeting I noticed that all of the chairs without arms were positioned around the computers.  That meant the cushy green chairs with arms were around the tables.  Hmm I wonder?     
          I usually walk in and ask friends to switch chairs with me or I quickly do a little staging before the meeting but not today!  I walked to the head of a table pulled out the green chair and slid right in.  I fit!  It was the very first time I sat in one of these wonderful comfortable chairs.  No more staging for me.  I’m so excited for my next first.

At the Pool
Ever since I started swimming
a 1/2 mile has taken 40 minutes.
4/12/10 Monday
a 1/2 mile took 30 minutes.

The real first is that I pushed myself just a little more each time. 
Small gains and it feels good that I’m moving in the right direction.


  1. To sit anywhere… without a care… only someone who has “been there” would know why this is so cool!


  2. Wow Shelli, I’m so happy for you! This post made my day. Talk about weight loss being liberating, huh? Congrats!!!
