It's awesome to be able to get up w/o a big production. I've been "beached" in the past--let me say that it's pretty tough to get off the ground if you're over 400 lbs! If you don't have a stool or something to grab ahold of, it's not good.
At 260ish I still don't hop up like a gymnist, but I CAN get up w/o too much trouble. Congrats to you on the achievement!
