You know, I don't do this for beauty (though I must admit that it is interesting to discover that I actually have cheekbones!), but mainly for my health.

But anyone who knows what it is to drag around a lot of extra weight, huff and puff needlessly going up stairs or unable to get out of a chair with ease and grace knows that these protests about being coerced or made to feel bad by societal expectations sound hollow.

Only too true. I would still not be able to do a marathon (or even a 10-miles-uptempo-march), but I can walk up a steep street without having the feeling that I might collapse any second. I breathe more freely, and I am twice as agile than I was before. I see a silver streak at the horizon, and that is wonderful.

This sounds great. I have only started walking to work three times a week because our daughter needs the car when she comes home from school in order to go to her job. I's only about a mile, but all uphill, non-stop, some of it steep. I was a WRECK the first few times, nearly hoarse and coughing by the time I got to work. Now, ten walks later, it's still difficult but not as wrenching. It just shows how unexercised I've become, but also how quickly one sees a little bit of improvement. You sound really happy and full of zest.
