Default From the air...

I'm on a plane, and completely floored by the difference in my experience. No seatbelt extender, no sucking it in to try and fasten a tight seatbelt where I hope the stewardess can still see it... just got on and fastened my seatbelt... with plenty of room to spare! My seat is comfortable - no contorting myself to try to angle away from the person next to me (who is my daughter, and has actually spent a fair portion of the trip with her head on my shoulder anyway!) I even used the airplane bathroom without feeling cramped and claustrophobic...
And the best part... My seat tray is down and I can be on my laptop drinking coffee

WoohooO!!! That is awesome! I TOTALLY know what you mean!! It's so dreadful and things that those without a weight issue never think about... things like flying or going to an amusement park and worrying you won't fit into the ride.. I'm so happy for you!! I'm looking forward to that! There's only so much contorting I can do (man it's so uncomfortable too! who knew you could suck your THIGHS in! hahah)

That's fantastic!!

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly..."
