When I travel, I always take MBT shoes, basically because that is all I wear. Jan Castle, who I visited while in Oregon, asked about my shoes and she bought a pair after I left. I always warn people that they are not inexpensive shoes but that I really believe in them. Well, she just bought her second pair. Thus, this post is related to my trip to Oregon! Kinda, sorta.
Above, is a photo of me before MBT.....guess you could call it bmbt! Or you can just call me fat! LOL! I was at Tallulah Gorge with my mother and sister.
I first found out about MBT shoes while visiting the Mall of America while in town for the PGA Championship two years ago. Below is a photo of me wearing my very first pair on the very first day. I was at the Minnehaha Waterfalls.
At the Walking Store, they told me I shouldn't wear them to the tournament as they might take some time to get used to them. I think I would have been just fine wearing them!
I literally wore them out of the store and did not want to take them off.
For Christmas that year, Jim bought me a pair of MBT sandals. At the end of the summer, the tan lines on my feet were of those sandals!
Below, is me wearing MBT sandals while walking to a waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge.
Below, I am wearing the same sandals while at the Outer Banks.
Walking at the beach with my MBT shoes....
Whether I am on the sand, working a convention, climbing waterfalls or lighthouses, walking the neighborhood or at the farm or walking through pollen at a garden, I am wearing MBT's! There are a lot of wannabes our there on the market, and I have tried some of them, but they aren't the same. If you ever shop for shoes, I am sure you have seen all the "rocker" type shoes.
Joyce bought a pair before we went on the Rockies trip last year, but she said she felt unstable when she stood still. That is actually them working as you improve your balance. I am not sure if she ever wore them enough to get used to them....I hope she did.
Obviously, it takes more than a pair of shoes to lose over eighty pounds, but it does take activity, especially when you are my age. My MBT shoes help me get in that activity.
The PGA Championship begins tomorrow here in Atlanta. I have tickets for all seven days. I am not sure that I will be going all seven days as Jim won't go all week....as he says, someone has to work around here! I have, however, been known to strike off all alone....yes, it is true. But, the days I do go, I will be wearing my MBT's! After all, it is our anniversary! It has been two years since I first met my first MBT! I have been on the go ever since!
