Waterslides anyone??!!

Today I disregarded my weight (would love to say 'forgot my weight', but that's pushing it!!) and went on all the water slides at the waterpark we went to today and had a blast. In doing so, I managed to overcome my fear of being told the following:

"Sorry, but you look like you exceed the weight limit on this slide" (dont know if slides HAVE weight limits, but I guess not since I'm sure I would have exceeded them. Regardless, as I stood in line to get on the slide, I had the thought that perhaps I would have to step on some giant scale before I sat (oh so gracefully of course) down on the top of the slide!! Thankfully there was no scale, and i just whooshed away :)


"Sorry, but pregnant women cant go on the slides" (acckkkk I would have just died!!)

I also managed to get over the fear that I would generate a tsunami at the bottom of the slide and send the lifeguards splashing wildly out of their seats :) This of course is silly, but it entered my mind along with all the other fat-related thoughts, like: do fat people go faster on the slides? Felt like it :)

Today I didn't care that I was fat and just had fun with my family, and it was damn worth it!!! However, as usual, I long wait for the day when my weight has no bearing on what I do or how I feel about doing it.

Now I just have to make sure the video of me screaming like a crazy woman as I whipped down one of the slides doesn't make it onto Utube like my husband threatened... he's watched it at least 8 times, laughing hysterically :)

* UPDATED: video has now been watched countless times by all my inlaws and my husband's extended family. Since they only speak hebrew, I have no idea what they're saying after they finish laughing...I'm sure it's complimentary though, right?! ;)

Sounds like you guys had a great time! Good for you! I wish I were that brave. If I had gone down a water slide... I probably would have gotten stuck halfway down because of my fat hips and thighs. lol

Sounds like a good day to me... I think that just knowing you're working on your weight can help you to feel okay with yourself... that's the case for me anyway... and as for the video, I've gotta side with the husband on this one. I'd pay money to see that video!

YAY!! Sounds like you had a great time. I know how hard overcoming those weight limit fears are and I'm so proud of you for enjoying the moment instead of living with regrets!!

Oh my gosh, I was crying I was laughing so hard at your post. I'm so glad you are having a great time with your family! That totally sounds like something my hubby would do.
