A Small Victory for Me
Tuesday, August 24, 2010
Yesterday, my husband, daughter, and niece went to Kings Island. Since both of the girls were under age 8 (mine is 5), we spent most of the day in the kid's area. At one point, we were waiting in line at the kid's roller coaster. There was a hold up in getting one of the cars started...it was taking forever. Then I saw what it was. A heavy-set father was having trouble fitting into the seat with his daughter, and she was not about to ride alone. I started sweating and getting anxious....what this going to be me in about 5 minutes? I felt so bad for this man. I have been there. The worse part is knowing that you are going to have to get out of that seat in front of an audience when the ride is over. My stomach was turning. To my surprise, I am happy to report that I fit in every ride! Even though I have gained 5 of my 15 lbs lost back, I am still proud of the 10 I have lost. It made a difference on Sunday. Thank you Spark People and my Spark Friends!
