Theme park rides I love them.
I am a big kid at heart and love the thrill and laughs that I get from these rides.
The thing is due to being so over weight, means that I can't get on them.
Tonight I am going to what is called a Mop fair. It is a big traveling fair that stops off at different towns.
My sister and brother etc are dragging me along, but I know up front that all I get to do is watch.
I only feel a small bit sorry for myself really. I mean for whatever reason and excuse, I have chosen to allow myself to stay over weight.
10 years ago I went to Florida. This was a life long dream. I was so excited and planned everything. I knew which rides were going to be my favourite.
What I did not expect was too be big for a lot of the cool ones. A couple of the rides had a bigger seat which I found quite humiliating. Poor attendant trying to push the bar down lol.
I assumed i was not that big. Many many Americans were far bigger than me and managed to ride no problem. I guess it is to do with broad shoulders as well as being fat.
Two years later I went back to Florida. I vowed I would lose weight so I could enjoy more.
Needless to say that did not happen.. It actually turned out put on some weight as I could not even fit in the larger seats.
Yea I could ride water rides still and some of the others, but not the cool big coasters. I just had to watch my brother and his friend have fun and pretend I did not care.
One of my dreams is to go back to Florida some day and ride all those rides in the normal seats. I am a harry potter fan and really want to try out that new ride.
A lot of people seem to have trouble with new ride due to weight. I don't want me to be one of them.
Why am I writing all this today?
It is good for me to reflect.
I feel so much more positive about losing weight and my ability to do it.
So yes tonight I probably can't get on any rides 'maybe the Walzers' lol. But I can go knowing that some day soon I will be sat on those rides having fun again.
