Not only do clothes not flatter me, but I get literal cramps when I exercise. That's what being out of shape does to a person, and I know there's only one way to get past it.
Still working out with Leslie, but I sure have to take it slower than I did when I was younger/skinnier. When I do too many knee lifts in a row, my hip cramps. I spent a whole night barely sleeping because of shin splints. (I stretch more after a workout now.)
I intend to keep persisting--cramps and all--until I can do a whole mile with no pain. This may take longer than originally anticipated, but I've got plenty of time.
