My Body Takes Me There
Monday, June 07, 2010
It's been three summers since I started on this weight loss journey. This summer will be the best ever because I can go and do what ever I want. My body is not stopping me at all. Gone is the sore knees and feet. Gone is the pain every time I get up from sitting. I think about it all of the time. I am so grateful that I decided to get busy and stick with my plan long enough to really be able to experience the results. This past Thursday night my body took me to Disneyland. I work at a high school and it is a tradition to go to have Grad Nite at Disneyland. I signed up to be a chaperon the kids on the trip.
So there I was, a POW (previously overweight person) with thousands of teenagers at Disneyland from 12:30am until the sun came up at 6:00am. All night I kept thinking to myself, Wow, you are really doing this! I stood in long lines with no problem. I went through skinny turnstiles with out any worry. I had no problem fitting into the rides either. At the end of the trip I was so tired from being up all night and yes my knee hurt a little and I had blisters on my toes. But I felt fabulous that I was able to do something else that I really thought that I would never be able to do. It is going to be a great summer.
