Last weekend, I traveled to the far and distant land (anything more than 20 minutes away is “far and distant” in Los Angeles) of Yucaipa to pick apples with friends at the Willowbrook Orchard. It was absolutely delightful despite hot weather and long lines. It’s not something I would have ventured out to do a year ago, but about 115 pounds later, I like being outdoors more often and no longer worry about passing out from the simple “burden” of breathing. It’s not without hiccups (I did have to take a beat during the day to catch my breath and get some water rather urgently) but it’s still a lot of growth for me from which I derive more pride than I ever thought I would feel.
