It was time to buy dog food again and this time I was able to carry a 35lb. bag back to my car! So happy! Felt like a great accomplishment haha. Before, I was only able to carry the 18lb. bag for a while. Even at the beginning it was a bit heavy for my ankle. This is still new to me so with the 35lb. bag it still took me slower than usual to walk back to my car just to be safe. Yes, it's still heavy for my ankle but I was actually comfortable enough to carry it back to my car from the store. I'd say it was about it was about 30 steps from the store to the car. It made me feel like I was back to my old self except that I do feel the pressure in my ankle whenever I carry heavy things. This made me think what if I had a handicap placard, then I wouldn't have to walk so far to another parking spot. I'll see if I feel even stronger months from now. I am still careful and not pushing myself too far. Happy!
