Seat belt

Standard
First time flying in years without fear of my seatbelt not snapping comfortably.

First time flying in years without fear of my seatbelt not snapping comfortably.

A victory.  I never had to use a seatbelt extender, but it really came close last mid-May when I flew to Florida to go on my cruise to the Bahamas.

Tomorrow I fly to Cedar Rapids for work, and I’m 10 pounds less than on 1/29/13 when we flew to Tulsa.  I love my new body and love my new life!

  1. Awesome! Having to use a seat belt extender is one of my biggest fears. While I have never had to, I have literally worked up a sweat trying to buckle my seat belt on an airplane. (Mortifying). Congratulations and keep up the good work!!!

    • Lynn – when I went on my last trip in May 2012 before I started IP I upgraded to the next class to have roomier seats, hoping that would help….and also to minimize any potential awkwardness of the stranger sitting next to me thinking “oh great, I’m next to the obese lady taking up more than her fair share of room.” It took a lot of maneuvering to get the seatbelt fastened, and then cut into me the entire flight….however, I chose that discomfort instead of asking for an extender. I considered it my “punishment”. Some really bad thinking there.

      • Same here — on all counts. I am scheduled to fly again in May and am hoping to be 50 pounds thinner than the last time I flew by then. I never want to worry about having to fasten a seat belt again!
