I am actually braving the crowd at Wal Mart on a Saturday without needing to take breaks outside!! I used to be 390 lbs and had to use an electric cart to go around the store!! It feels GREAT to walk around, doing my shopping for 45-50 mins without SEVERE pain! I have a bad problem with the joint between my hip, pelis and spine but the weight loss makes it bareable-I've lost 65 lbs!!-No more being harrassed with fat jokes every time I go around the store because I'm walking, NOT riding now.
