So True! Even a disability doesn't have to stop you!
I agree whole heartedly with you! In 2006, I lost 86 lbs following the Atkins plan and lost it in only 9 months by walking 5-7 miles a day and drinking 1/2 my body weight in water (up to 100 ounces -per Drs. Orders). I kept the weight off until 2008 when my back was damaged on the job as a paramedic which resulted in docs orders limiting my walking or standing more than 15 mins at a time. Since then, I have lost and gained back the same 20-30 lbs a couple of times. I can only exercise in the local heated therapy pool. They have water weights that help me work on the arms and I walk laps across the pool for 20-40 mins at least 3 days a week. I also can float in the water and bring my knees upward to my chest like crunchies to exercise my ab muscles. This just goes to show that a disability may not hold you down if you want it bad enough. I actually feel much better after exercising. I was in a wheelchair for over a year, and then I did a couple of dvds of chair exercises a week. I couldn't do all of them, but I did what I could.
When life gives you lemons, get the vodka and make yourself a lemon drop!
