My husbands birthday is July 25th. I'm really excited about celebrating together and I already know what I would like to get him. I really want to get him tickets to Cedar Point for PointFest. It's September 14th and along with riding all the fun roller coasters a bunch of Christian artists will be having concerts, including Toby Mac, who is one of our favorites.
Anyway, my husband has been dieing to go to Cedar Point all year but I'm reluctant because last time I went I couldn't fit in a few of the rides. Yesterday I went on their website to find out if they could give a general idea of what size is too big for the rides. They say that women over 200lbs or who wear higher than a size 18 could have trouble on some of the rides.
Well, right now I weigh 264 and wear a size 22 so I know I'm going to have a problem. Unfortunately I carry most of my weight in my butt and thighs so that makes me sit higher and lapbelts on rides can be a pain. But I have two months to work on that problem and I really want to do this not just for my husband but for me too because I love rollercoasters.
Anyway, I have had success in the past doing the T-Tapp exercise program and so I'm going to start that up again. Starting today I'm doing a T-Tapp bootcamp which is 14 days straight of doing T-Tapp workouts. I have the Basic Workout Plus which is 17min and the Total Workout which is like 50min. I figure my goal will be the total workout but on the days I'm pressed for time I can do the Basic.
The reason I decided to go with T-Tapp is because her program really helps you lose inches, not necessarily pounds. Tonight I will take my measurements and post them here and then every week I will update.
I think if I work really hard I can get to the point where I can fit onto most of the rides.
I know my husband will be excited about the tickets for his Birthday but I think he'll be even happier if I can be successful in getting healthier and in better shape.
