Sneaker Porn DiariesI have sneakers all over the place. On the porch, in a box, on a towel. I have sneakers for work, sneakers for working out, sneakers for running, sneakers for spin class. There are long sneakers, short sneakers, sturdy sneakers, and some sneakers with poor support. I have blue sneakers, black sneakers, purple sneakers, orange sneakers, hot pink sneakers. Nike, Champion, Reebok, New Balance, Brooks.

2008 or 2009 I topped out at my highest weight, I think it was just over 370. I’m not really certain, the scale ran out of numbers. What I do know is I would blast through sneakers every few months because of my weight. The heels would actually collapse because of how I walked, which was mostly on the sides of my shoes (fairly common with obese bodies). Over the past couple of years I learned my leg muscles worked wrong and had been for twenty some-odd years. My patellas (knee caps) are pulled 50% out of place, which made lugging my fat self around really painful.

After weight loss surgery in 2011, and a few months spent in dream land (I just kinda expected to wake up one day and TADAAA! I’d be skinny! Yeah. Nope.) I hooked up with a trainer at the gym I had a membership at (for a year). I did it totally out of spite – my weight loss doctor kept pushing the “you got to move” button. So for six weeks I only met with the trainer for three half hour sessions. In all my stubbornness, I did not a smidgen more. I almost fell over at the end, my trainer said I lost 17 inches & 25 lbs.

So the sneaker thing – a few pairs can be chalked up to impulse buys, more because with my weight loss came sneaker size adjustments, which also encourages sneaker porn….everywhere. The dirtier the better. If your sneakers are clean, you’re doing something wrong!

I got a little side tracked in the past six months, little lazy in my meal planing & exercise schedule and I knew I needed a kick start. Inspired by a series of…well…inspiring moments, I signed up to run the Detroit Free Press Marathon in October. Part of Sneaker Porn Diaries will share my journey, and Kellie B’s journey (rising Sneaker Porn star!). We’ll also be sharing tips, suggestions, comments, rude remarks, and of course…Sneaker Porn.
