Non-Scale Victories at 30K feet...
Wednesday, April 18, 2012
I flew cross country today... interesting. I normally fly up and down the east coast, but something about the time zone changes and not being on my usual carrier, made me think about how different my flying experience is now vs before I started the lifestyle change/weight loss.
First, I don't have to stress or strain to get the seatbelt on. Even in coach class. I guess they must have installed longer seat belts (???)...
Second, there appear to be "new" seats too. I had a middle seat for 2 of the 4 legs of the flights - and I was very comfortable and didn't feel I was being squished nor that I was squishing my neighbors at the window or aisle seat. Couldn't be just my weight loss?
Finally, I didn't get hungry (no food cravings) while in the air. That's a lucky thing - because the options at 30K feet are not exactly friendly to my my new lifestyle and diet. Of course I had an appropriately friendly snack in my carry-on - nuts, seeds, etc. -- but I'm now able to manage my hunger, meals, etc., and have gotten very good at finding lifestyle appropriate food in almost any situation!
Again, these are just a few Non-Scale Victories... but they are just as sweet (as a bowl of Paleo friendly berries)!
What was your latest Non-Scale Victory?
