Stair Climber

I'm fat and on the third floor.  Talk about incentives to lose weight.  I'd love to have 20 pounds less to carry up the stairs. 
When DH was alive, he would help me carry grocries upstairs.  I'd carry a few bags to the house and start unpacking while my husband got the rest.  Such a great time.  Now, when I shop, all the bags are mine to carry.  At first I thought I couldn't do it.  But then, I bought this shopping cart.  This isn't your mothers old fashioned cart.  It's been redisigned.  It actually climbs stairs.  I can put in about 9 of those plastic bags and get up the stairs in one trip.  Hubby would have loved it, although I doubt he'd want to be seen with the thing.  It's a God send.  Without it, I would have had to make 8 trips, at least.
On the technical side, I've just set up a wireless router.  Comcast wanted 140 dollars to do the deed, plus a monthly rental for their router.  Took me about 20 minutes so I can watch my Roku tonight and go to sleep watching Cagney and Lacey.
Good times are ahead for me.  I can just feel it.

You sound so positive and PRODUCTIVE... :O) I\'m very proud of you... I know it\'s an uphill battle but you are doing great! You are way more creative than I am... I would have just made 8 trips!! And probably fussing at Kyle the whole way.... Oh, wait, I do that now! :O)

Losing weight is pretty hard. If you have the desire to do it, you will. The strength comes from deep inside of you. Stair is a healthy way to lose weight if that is your goal. The shopping cart is a good thing for groceries. I know what that is like when I lived with Carol Wolbers and we were on the 2nd store of a house. There were lots of stairs to climb lugging up the groceries. At that time I was separated from my ex-husband and enjoyed the stair climbing which is a good form of relieving the stress that I was undergoing at the time. All the best to you from Diane B.
