I went to a picnic at a park on Friday and got to go on that carnival ride I had to get off of last time because I was too big. That was a big turning point for me and one of my goals was to fit on that ride again. It felt so great to not only be able to get up into the seat easily, but the safety bar fit the first time, no pushing, no embarassment, it was awesome. I was by far the oldest person on the ride and I loved every stomach churning second of it! I even went on it a second time...a couple hours later after my stomach calmed down! ;) I also fit comfortably on every other ride I went on, though it was a bit embarassing to almost lose my lunch on the Ferris wheel. The FERRIS WHEEL for heavens sake!! I can handle spinning in circles while going nearly upside down, but forget about moving gently in a big circle while facing forward the whole time, LOL!
My 2 1/2 year old got to go on tons of rides, too and she LOVED it. She was so tired at the end of the day, she fell asleep on the way home at 6:30 and didn't wake up until 8:15 the next morning. It was a great day.
