Default able to ride amusement park rides again

I went to kennywood today (Pittsburghs amusement park) and it was SO FUN and I was a little anxious about fitting into rides but I fit into everything just fine.

We're gonig one more time on oct 3rd for fright nights. woohoo! Can't wait!

By then hopefully I'll have lost a few more lbs or inches and it'll be an even better fit!

Last time I went I almost got stuck in a ride (my hips) and it was very embarassing, everything went smoothly this time!

That great! It is embarrassing to not fit in the rides. I'm always scared the bar won't push down over my lap :-(

Congrats! I went to six flags last summer and had trouble fitting on a lot of the rides. I just played it off, telling my friends I felt queezy and should skip the ride. It was aweful. Even with my weight loss, I'm still scared to go back.
