I'm not going to sugar coat this. You know how some people have "ride rides with my children or whomever" as one of their WLS goals? Well, you can cross that off my list. Hard. And with black marker. Or just tear that strip off of my list. And burn it. :)
We went to a carnival last night. And, I rode rides... just because I could. That's fabulous! YAY NSV! It's one of those arbitrary weight loss milestones... and I never need to do it again. Ever. Rides make me frightened. And sick. Now I remember why I didn't get on rides when I was thin.
I am however going to sugar coat THIS. Funnel cake!!! I ate an entire third of one. Yes, I saved calories and it was a predetermined decision. I also ate two bites of a corndog, several french fries, and one nacho. Totally disgusting and wonderful all at one time. Many fun things are?!?
This is why I love my band. I can have my funnel cake, and still fit onto rides (if I wanted to, which I think I've made clear that I do not). I couldn't help but to notice miserable obese women last evening, and feel guilt and sadness and compassion and freedom and a sense of responsiblity... because I could have my cake and eat it too. Many of us bandsters know the misery of sweaty hot, barely able to walk, but doing it anyway, on a hot summer day. I guess being sick from rides is nothing to complain about. I was the lucky one.
