    Don't get me started!!!!
    When you suddenly can't walk see what happens to your weight! The street runs both ways - yes, weight can cause mobility issues but mobility issues can also cause excessive weight gain.

    I went from able to walk up a staircase carrying 50lbs of dog food to can't walk at all without crutches in a single day and I never have regained the ability to walk around Walmart. I did good this week - been out in the yard every day and to the gate twice - which would have been nothing a few years ago but hurts now.


    Think it's so danged easy - try a severe arthritis attack in a knee sometime.

    Running a marathon is not a training regime. I make a point to shop at DG so I have to walk - but Walmart is way too big for me to do that. Walking from one door to the other for a cart hurts - a lot.

    Walmart Grocery .com. Walmart also offers in store pick up and delivery. Walmart .com has free delivery for most orders over $35.

    He still needs it renewed. Sometimes you need to go in (Wally World or elsewhere) - and eventually you have to go in when you're having a really bad day. On good days, just don't use the placard.

    Keep in mind that accidentally amening a post that you were trying to report is known around here as "doing a C.P." (Cow Poke)

    I don't doubt that there are people who gain weight because they can't walk, but it's also true that many people can't walk because they allowed themselves to get so fat that their knees couldn't carry them anymore.

    Obviously.

    I went from able to walk up a staircase carrying 50lbs of dog food to can't walk at all without crutches in a single day and I never have regained the ability to walk around Walmart. I did good this week - been out in the yard every day and to the gate twice - which would have been nothing a few years ago but hurts now.
    I have my own war stories of immobility.

    Been there, done that, got the walker.

    Now, please, go find somebody else to whack on the head.

    And you know which is which when judging them?

    Neighborhoods don't degrade in one fell swoop. It's drip by drip.
