I used to think nothing of it when I was able to stand at the sink and do a load of dishes. Well I lost that ability due to a mixture of things. Things like being overweight, back pain, and laziness. I used to have to sit at the sink in a chair and do the dishes. Since I've started working out and eating healthy I have been able to stand at the counter and do the dishes.
Another thing that I once took for granted and have since lost is taking a shower while standing up. Reasons why I can't stand up and take a shower are the chance I may fall, the back pain gets worse, and the fact that at my size I currently can't wash all of my body from an upright position. It really bothers me to reach to wash my feet.
These are some goals I have set to be able regain normal function. As soon as I accomplish some more of my goals I will let you know.
If any of you are having problems with normal daily function I encourage you to look at all aspects of your life and see what changes you can make to make your life more comfortable.
