I thought I'd share the beginning of my journey. I've done this a few times and quit after the first day. Today is my 2nd day, so I'm doing 100% better than before!

I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but after my upper legs were practically Siamese twins in fat and friction for decades, I wasn’t arguing. I was, however, about to topple head-first into the fruit juice display because I was so focused on how I was walking that I suddenly couldn’t walk because I was paying too much attention to it....more
