I just joined a few weeks ago --- and have been so excited about all the information - trackers & great people on this site!!!

I have been over weight since I was about 12 --- and since then my sizes have gone up pretty consistently to match with my age ---

I never really thought about it --- it was just the way I was

I honestly have never actually dieted before --- and have not excercised on purpose since I was in school!!!

BUT --- while at the movies with my 5 year when I had to change seats twice to find the "comfy seats" I started thinking about all the times before when I had to do things just like that

like when at a reataurant I always ask for a table because I can't fit in a booth --- or when I ride in someone elses car & can't get the seat belt around me --- or when I went to Bay Beach with my family & couldn't get the bar down on the scrambler ride

I decided that I needed to do something ---

I had heard someone raving about Spark People on a talk show recently & I decided to check it out for myself & I have been addicted ever since!!!

    I feel your pain. I went to universal studio with some friends on vacation and luckly some of the rides had a sample seat outside so that you can see if you were going to be able to fit. Some of the rides I just couldn't go on with them, but at least I knew before I got to the front of the line and had to get kicked off the ride, that's happened before. I'm hoping that this is a permanent lifestyle change for me and that I won' t ever have to get kicked off a ride again or have to change tables at a restaurant because I don't fit in the booths.
