My Weight Loss Goal Reward? Disney World!

11 Feb

rollercoaster

One of the most painful memories I have from being overweight is at a fair.  I was about 75 pounds lighter than I am today and was still not able to ride one of the amusement rides.  This after trying to strap myself in and having the operator try to help.

I was so ashamed and embarrassed – people had been watching me struggle and eventually saw me walk away without riding the ride.  It was humiliating.  I wish it had been enough to kick my weight loss in to gear, but it simply wasn’t time yet.  I guess I hadn’t reached my rock bottom, no matter how degrading the experience was.

For a lot of weight loss people, they have a reward in mind.  At Weight Watchers, you get a star online for each milestone you hit in your weight loss journey.  An online star may sound simple – but it’s so exciting when it pops up on your account.  Finally – you’ve reached another goal!

Some of my friends looked forward to being able to shop at their favorite store.  To wear clothes they haven’t worn in years.  To be able to skip shopping in the plus-size sections.

Some wanted to be able to wear a swimsuit without feeling self conscious.

My reward?

I want to go to Disney World.  I want to go on every possible ride they have.  With no worry that I’ll get kicked off.  That is my goal.  And I can’t wait for the day I update this blog … from Disney!  🙂
