Losing weight has opened my eyes and changed my reality. Flying is so much better now than before, when I was smashed into the airplane set.

I’d like to share with you my most recent flight down to Cabo… and the changes I experienced for the first time.

As a former size 24, fitting in the airplane seat was always uncomfortable and once down right painful. Now at a size 10, life is a lot easier, and airplane seats are a lot more roomier than before.

I remember about ten years ago, I had asked for a seat belt extender. Not only was I embarrassed to ask for one, but I didn’t fit into the seat. My body was in pain. Then to my surprise and horror… they didn’t have one.  I guess that’s something I needed to know to bring. 

 Well this trip was different. I didn’t bring a seat extender… I didn’t need one!

I could cross my legs with ease.  The tray table actually came all the way down to where it’s supposed to be, instead of stopping at my gut! I could even turn around in the bathroom and put on lipstick! Life is so different now.

Life is Good – Thin!
