Something strange happened today, I was sitting in my comfy chair, the one that's so comfortable until I try to get up. Then the pain hits the knees and I use the arms of the chair to ease myself to a standing position.
Well, I was watching the TV, and fancied a coffee. In the kitchen making myself a cuppa, (I deserved it because I'd done the cleaning, hoovering, washing and shopping), I thought to myself as the kettle boiled, "how did I get here, I don't remember leaving the living room? With that thought on my mind, I went back to my comfy chair and sat down. There was something strange happening. The trip from the kitchen to my chair was also barely memorable.
I asked myself what was different. I thought and thought, and the answer was, there was no PAIN! Since then I've been up and down in and out of my chair like a Jack in a box. The shear joy of being able to do such a simple thing without thinking about it. I'm starting to feel younger!
The aches and pains creep up on us as we very slowly age and put on weight. We learn to live with it, because it happens so slowly. I guess I'm very lucky, because for me at least, losing the weight has made a big impact on my poor knees. Aching knees are now history. Hallelujah!
PS It's a shame that I broke a tooth during the week and that I dread the dentist, but hey, you win some you lose some
