A Nice Weight Loss Memory

When I was working on my "too fat for" list I was reminded of a nice memory. Being an overweight guy, I have spent much of my life not being able to enjoy some of the fun times in life. One of the things I missed out on a lot was being able to enjoy roller coasters. I have definitely missed out on some trips to Six Flags and Cedar Point.

Back in 2003, I lost a lot of weight. I went to Las Vegas with a bunch of friends and family. My brother and I went on the roller coaster at the New York, New York casino. It was a fun ride, and what I remember most about it is shedding some tears when the ride was over because I was so happy that I fit in the seat and was able to ride the roller coaster. That's a nice memory. I need to create more of them.

My "Too Fat For" List

I have noticed a lot of promos for a new show called Too Fat For 15 lately, and it got me thinking. Besides being too fat for 15 back when I was 15, (I'm currently too fat for 35)what else have I been too fat for at various times in my life?

Here are a few things that come to mind: At various points in my life I've been too fat for movie theater seats, too fat for airplane seats, too fat for booths in restaurants, too fat for dating, too fat for roller coasters, and too fat for stores that don't have the words "big and tall" in them. That's just a partial list, I'm sure. It makes me sad. What a waste.

Right now I weigh about 326 pounds. The most I've ever weighed was 429 pounds, so I have hope that I can go all the way. 226 pounds sounds about right to me. But when I look at that "too fat for" list, it makes me sad.
