There are so many things in life I realize I have either missed out on or continue to miss out on because of my weight. One of those things is riding roller coasters. I have always loved the thrill of the ride, but at some point in time you realize that your weight will be a factor on the coaster. It’s not that it’s necessarily an actual factor but it’s everything that comes with it…
- The looks people give you
- The question as to if you will fit with someone else or will be bar go down
- How much is too much to be on a roller coaster
- No one wanting to be crammed in with you
- Just the embarrassment in general
For me, not participating in something I love so much has been a better solution that actually dealing with factors 1-5. Don’t get me wrong I don’t blame anyone else. I don’t blame them for their looks. I wouldn’t want to be crammed in either. I don’t blame them fearing for their own lives and I certainly don’t blame the judgy-ness because I am no better.
I only blame this person…ME! the one who has allowed herself to get into this situation. I can’t even begin to list all the things in life I have missed out on because I have allowed my bad habits dictate my future. Isn’t that sad? Isn’t is sad that food has ruined my life in some ways.
Don’t get me wrong to date I have had a pretty good life for the most part. Like anyone I have had my ups and downs but I can’t imagine how much better my life might have been if I had never gained all this weight. If I had be “normal” so to speak.
Thinking about all that you are missing out on or have missed out on certainly gives you pause to think and just might give you a reason to make better decisions…
