Default Watch me fly! 225 lb mini-goal reward!

I've wanted to do indoor skydiving for the longest time. I love to scuba dive so another way to feel weightless really interested me.

The weight limit was 230 lbs so I was really looking forward to this mini-goal all the way down. My husband and I went together and really had a blast!

I would recommend this activity to anyone, especially to celebrate 225 lbs! Most people don't fly as high in the tunnel their first time as I did with my instructor, I was just very stable flying so he took me up there. There is no skill involved, just a desire to try something new. We also purchased a Groupon, so we got 50% off

You looked fabulous!!! What a fantastic way to celebrate!! I have a feeling that your scuba experience helped with your stability in the tunnel. Keep up the fantastic work!!

I remember when you first joined and put that up as your goal and thought how fun that would be.

That's fantastic that you followed through and are enjoying the reward!

What's the next goal going to be - something with scuba?

Thank you! Not sure of the next reward because I have a couple of fun things coming up already. I might go real skydiving at 199 lbs though. I thought it was something I always wanted to go but couldn't, but now that I'm pretty much light enough to go, I might be chickening out!

I'm going to a theme park next month. This was supposed to be my 199 lbs reward, but really I just want to go and try to fit on all the rides. I don't have time to wait until 199 if I want to go this summer.

We are diving in the Channel Islands for 3 days at the end of this month and then in Hawaii in September and Honduras in November, no weight loss required, only encouraged You'd think if I lost over 40 lbs I wouldn't fit into my old wetsuit- well, not true. Those things are really stretchy, I guess. It's terrible and awesome at the same time.
