I took my flight from St. Louis to Detroit tonight via Southwest, and the seatbelt fit, no extender needed. Last time I flew was about 6 months ago, and that was at 310ish. I am happy for that, but sad to be away from my sweetie.

Sorry you are away from your sweetie, but how exciting that the seatbelt fit! Last time I flew was at my highest weight of 350, and that Southwest seatbelt was nowhere close to fitting me. That's not a good feeling. I won't be flying again till November, and I'll bet that ding-dang thing fits then!

Way to go!!!!

I sure know what you mean -- its now an anticipated joy to measure our success by hearing that seatbelt click EASILY across our shrinking laps!!!! And don't you just love that we are no longer feeling as much like a sausage squishing into those still too narrow seats??? I'm flying today!! Keep up the good work!!

That's great news! I had to fly in December and it was really uncomfortable. The seatbelt fit (barely) but my thighs kept pushing up the armrests and my seatmates kept pushing them back down. I was so worried that they were going to complain to the flight attendants. I'm looking forward to the day when I don't have to worry about it anymore!
