A few weeks ago I posted that I tried water skiing, but couldnt get all the way up. I tried again yesterday & actually figured out how to stand up. I wasnt up for more than 30 seconds, but I was actually up & leaning back. I was so hyped up ALL day long & last night. My husband wasnt with me, but my sister & daughter were. It was an GREAT feeling. I will try again before summers out to see if I can stay up longer, but I am happy with being able to stand. I was yelling & cheering in the water & I am sure everyone on the lake thought I was nuts, but who cares! I did it! I did it! I did it!
