    Today... I RAN! Just a little bit, but I did it several times during my walk. One time, I even ran for long enough that I had to stop running lest I set off my asthma. I've always hated running, so I haven't done it for more than a few seconds to catch a bus since high school, more than a decade ago. I don't think I'll do it again unless I have contacts in, though, because my glasses got bouncy.

    I used to keep an extra pair of glasses for doing HIIT cardio or running. Bouncy glasses makes a person ill!

    @tthickens637 I’ve been doing yoga for over ten years. I was 35 BMI last September. I reached normal BMI about four months ago and started working with a trainer. She has really built up my upper body strength. On Jan 1st, my goal for the year was “an arm balance”, and now I’ve got several. So I’ve upped the ante to “headstand in middle of the room”.

    Today was the first time I tried this pose, called “Fallen Angel”. The whole class clapped for me, something I’ve never seen at this studio. I was really touched. Many of them know me from 70 pounds ago, probably as “the fat chick: at least she tries really hard”.

    I feel like my body is a new toy. It does so many things I could never, ever have asked it to do just a few months ago.

    I asked someone to take the pictures after class so I could share them with my trainer to thank her. She is amazing- so supportive and motivating.

    Got grasshopper pose, too!

    This made my Day!

    I'm not sure about the whys, but my eyesight seems to be getting better. Things are not as "blurry" as they used to be and I don't seem to need my glasses as much. Whatever the reason, I'm so glad and count this as a NSV for sure!

    There's fat in your eyeball, socket, around the muscles that control your focus. It's a legitimate side effect of weight loss that it changes your eyesight. Make sure you get yours looked at so you don't make your eyes worse by using the wrong prescription long term.

    Close enough to being correct in explanation to be definitely be correct in conclusion. Heed the advice and get reexamined if you (anyone reading) ever notice vision changes with weight loss.

    I'll be sure to keep this in mind. :open_mouth:

    My university grad ring fits. I've never worn it, it literally never went past my joint, but I've always wished I could.


    Well done! Both the degree and weight loss took solid persistence and motivation!!
