I'm kinda excited about this so I figured, why not, I'll share it. I decided last year that I was going to go to Disney/Universal this summer and fit on every ride.
There was no way I was going to have to try to fit into a ride and have to leave in front of everyone because I was too big. Plus, I didn't want to have to worry for my son on bench rides because the bar would stop on me and he'd still have a foot of room on him to fly out of.
I was pretty lofty in my initial ideas of a goal, but aren't we all? (170, 140??!) My realistic goal was that I wanted to be under 200 for the trip, and I made it as we're going tomorrow. I can't believe it, but I did it.
Now, to work on not gaining while I'm there and finding the motivation to continue on when I get back. I suppose that's part 2.........
