As a former fatty flying was the ultimate test on just how much I had gained from year to year…
Those seats kept getting smaller and smaller… At least that was my reality. Heaven forbid that I could actually be getting bigger and bigger….
I remember a flight my cousin Donna Conway and I took to Aruba. I could not fit in the seat.
The steel arms were welded down and my hips squeezed so tightly — I hurt.
The worst was yet to come…
The seat belt was a good 6 inches too short!
The seat belt had to have been designed for tiny little people. Maybe it was a kids only flight I’d gotten on by mistake. Now that I think back, that had to be why I didn’t fit in the seat. Even my cousin was feeling the pinch, but not as bad as me.
I thought that this could never happen to me.
I asked the flight attendant for a seat belt extender
They didn’t have one!
I flew all the way to Aruba in physical pain and mental agony.
I was beyond embarrassed… I was OBESE!
Today was a much different experience and one I just have to share with you. It blew me away when I saw just what a 103 pounds looks like from an air plane seat.
If you are where I was just a few years ago, there is a light at the end of the runway and it’s not another air plane. It’s a way to get your weight off quickly and safely. I was successful doing Weight Watchers for my first year, and after hitting a plateau went on Medifast after getting the inside scoop from my good friends Dudley and Sherry. Now I am 10 pounds from my optimal health and traveling is taking on a whole new feel!
More videos to come, so please come back and let me share more with you!
On our way to Cabo!
