Okay so after overcoming my anxiety and actually using the airplane bathroom (see earlier blog). I decided when flying home yesterday to just eat normal, drink normal and relax knowing I could use the bathroom.
what a great way to spend a day
I had breakfast and lunch and even had a beverage at the airport and didn't even think twice about it.
I acted like everyone else there.
no more being dehydrated on the day of travel. No more being hungry.
I am free
So, 3 years ago I could not fit in one seat, I needed seat belt extenders, I had trouble fitting down the aisle of the plane. I had rude comments from strangers about how I am costing the plane to be over weight (even though I would pay for 2 seats) and I lived in hell not eating or drinking for 12 hours before flight.
I fit in one seat with arm rest all the way down.
I fit in the seat belt with extra room
I am pretty much the same size as others on the plane, even smaller than some
I eat and drink like a normal person
I fly with no anxiety at all about being judged
What a difference 160+ lbs can make. I still have 90 to lose and I will lose them, but a fantastic life is already mine for being where I am.
