As a fat kid, fat teen, fat adult, I dreamed of being a normal weight. Well, finally, I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high; 50 pounds below Dec. 2008 weight. In 2009 I achieved healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I "always" wanted! Check out my SparkPeople Success Story: http://www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?p

    Oh, I saw exactly what I had tripped over... just the slightest uneven freeze/thaw difference in two squares of the concrete trail (it was very visible as I scrambled to my feet). Worst was that I was with Jeremy AGAIN... I'm going to get a complex! He tells me I should be going slowly, and maybe we were going too fast? But bottom line, I need to be paying attention and not allow myself to be distracted... I firmly believe my last several falls, over the past couple of years have been exactly that... talking with companions, looking at the watch (before getting slowed to a walk), etc.

    I wonder if single vision lenses might help... I was in clear glasses, not sun this time, but both are progressives. Sigh. Or maybe walk more, run less.
