Total Weight Loss

I had a brilliant idea how to get the lock-laces cinched - kitchen tongs!  Mine are rounded and open at the end and I could easily hold the gripper part of the laces with that while I slid the slidey thing into place.  To test my theory, I sat on the bed and put my right let out to the side on the bed with my knee slightly bent.  I put on my sock with my right hand and then my shoe.  So far, so good.  I held the tongs in my left hand and placed them over the gripper.  I pulled with that as I slid the other piece with my right hand.  Success!!  

I immediately started mentally writing an inspiring  blog post in my mind all about how when there is a will there is a way and how we should all just hang in there and blah, blah, blah.  Then I sort of panicked about not having any more excuses about the gym and trying to figure out when I'd go since the rest of the week is jam packed.

I decided to put on my left shoe and wear them for the rest of the day in order to get used to them again so that when I did go to the gym I didn't get blisters or anything.  And sort out actually going to the gym later. So, I tried the same thing only with my left shoe.  Leg on the bed, sock on, shoe on, tongs in right hand, slider in left hand and...I pulled the laces out of the tip/gripper.  UGH!  I can click it open to put the laces back in.

Now, I'm no longer feeling inspired.

Am I being taught a lesson in perseverance? Or am I being told 'don't do this.'? I don't know yet.  Perhaps when 65MD comes home, he'll know how to pop the thing back open to put the laces back in.  Sigh.
