115 lbs down at Disneyland. ..

So, last year I did Disneyland on a trip to S. Cal. I was so fat I had a hard time walking the park because of extreme back pain, not to mention I had a difficult time squeezing onto most thrill rides. So much so I experienced anxiety just standing in line wondering if I would fit into the seat. Well, 11 mos. later and 115 lbs lost, I buzzed around the park without pain and shortness of breath. Every ride I went on had room to spare.

Just thought I'd share that ;-)

    So happy for you - what a great victory!
  • Congratulations. I hope I can say the same thing next year when I go to Dragon Con again. Maybe I won't need to use a scooter and run over my daughter's feet again.

    Great, it's like last year you had a woman on your back the whole time.

    Love the imagery ;-)

    Actually, I've likened it unto carrying around two 50 lb (plus) bags of dog food on my back.

    How wonderful. I went last year and hated all my pictures. In September of 2015, I will return. I will have lost the 50 I needed to lose by then for sure!! Bring on the camera!!!
  • Disneyworld is a hug motivator for my weight loss as well. I was worried not only about the rides -- but the airplane seat. I'm happy to say that I'm now 40 lbs. lighter than when I started this year & feel excited for the upcoming trip. I still have a loooong way to go on my fitness journey, and really enjoyed your inspirational post.
