Robin - congrats on dipping down into the '60s - and on your 30 lb loss!

I've lost about 24 lbs and when I think about those 24 pounds as a 5-lb bag of flour strapped to each arm and leg, and another on my belly, it seems like a much bigger accomplishment than when I just think conceptual pounds.

In the last year, I had noticed that when I'd step over something, that more often than not, I wasn't lifting up the trailing foot high enough to clear the object. I thought it was a sign of getting older. Recently, I noticed it wasn't happening any more and figured it was because I was getting more fit. But in writing the above, I realized that maybe it was because my leg had the equivalent of a 5-lb bag of flour attached and I wasn't compensating for it.
