Have you ever noted there are small events in your life, which have great impact. It isn't always the big life events, which hit you like a two by four between the eyes. Thus the saying "The straw that broke the camels back." I had such an event occur last Friday while at Six Flags Great America. I got on the first ride we chose, the V-2 and was unable to buckle the seat belt because of my size. I had to have them unlock me, assist my son out and place him next to his uncle. I vowed right then and their I would not have that happen again. I avoided the rides the rest of the day to avoid the embrassment. I wanted my son to have fun with his cousins and not draw attention to myself, after all this was his day. The pain I endured walking the park, not to mention the pain I endured emotionally, took a toll on my being. I can not go on in this shell of a person. I feel as if I am not living and giving my full potential. My weight has affected every aspect of my life. Time to make small changes that add up in a big way.
