Default airplane NSV!

So I flew cross country yesterday (2 connections, yikes!) and for the first time in more years than I can remember...I didn't need a seatbelt extender!

I can't tell you how awesome that moment was for me.

Infinity and beyond!

Yay!! That's so great! I had that experience a few months ago when I went to NYC. I actually had room to tighten my seat belt.. it was an amazing feeling.

Congratulations on your success! Keep up the great work.

That's awesome! I've avoided planes for many years because of the fear of being told I was too big and would have to buy a second ticket.

That's awesome for you. I am really happy for you. I encountered this recently at an amusement park where I refused to go with everyone else on a roller coaster sure that I wasn't gonna be able to get my huge hips in that little seat. So glad I am on my way down.
Congratulations again on your accomplishments.

Isn't it wonderful! I understand because on a recent trip I was able to put the snack tray down without getting it stuck on my fat belly. Cool.

I never could figure out if I was more embarassed to ask for the extender or to have a flight attendant offer me one. Good for you!

First of all, congratulations on your NSV, what an awesome feeling!!

Second, for those of us who aren't at that point yet, I bought my own seatbelt extender from an online store called Living Large. It was around $50 and well worth every penny. It folds up into a small little pouch the size of a cell phone and I just keep it right in my purse. I pull it out if I need it, if I don't then great, but I still have it if needed. I don't have to draw any attention to myself by having to ask for an extender and no one other than my traveling conpanions have even noticed I have it. Just a thought for someone who travels alot. It's one less thing to worry about when flying.

One for each 5 pounds lost

That is a great NSV. I haven't flown since getting big but this was one of the fears in the back of my mind (especially when I started to notice that going to the movies was uncomfy).

Awesome job, congrats congrats

Congrats! Last summer was the first time I had to use a seat belt extender and I was so stressed about having to ask for one. That's an awesome acheivement!
