Today we bought a camping trailer

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Today we went out to look for a camping trailer...
Camping is one of the things I like to do but have not done for a long time....

I started to wonder today what other things I put off because of my weight, then this hit me.....What has my family or friends put off because of my weight...I wonder how many things Gary did not go or ask me to do because of my weight...He knew I was very embarrassed to go to new places becuae I worried so much if the seat would be big enough or hold enough. or would there be a lot of stairs or have to walk a long way....

Wonder how many of us have had the same issues, we don't even want to think of how our weight impact friends and family?

we have the power to change it all.
Today as we went from place to place I realized how much my world has change, it's open a whole world of possibilities and it feels so wonderful...I'm not going to dwell on what I missed as I can't change that but I am going to work on what I can today ,and all the tomorrows to get out and enjoy the world around me.

We found a perfect trailer for us and we are planning our first adventure. Gary would never say anything about my weight and holding him back but I can just see the excitement in his face when we talk about where we want to go and what we want to do....knowing I can now do it all...

Have a healthy day and think if you can't loose the weight for YOU maybe you can for your children, husband and your family....

    We have a tent we have not used since before we got married. We are hoping to experiment with it next year. Once madison is a little older.

    Have fun and enjoy it Kitt.

    Congrats on the new camper. You will enjoy it so much. Have lots of fun and enjoy it.

    You are so right about our weight effecting others. I notice the shock in my kids eyes when I suggest a bike ride, or walking to the playground. Six months ago, those things would have never happened. If we went to the playground, it was in the van, and I would sit on a bench reading while they played. Now I play with them. I am sorry I missed so much of my children's childhood being fat, but I am going to make the most of what I have now. The kids are enjoying the new me as much as I am.

    Have a great day!

    I think you really hit the nail right on, excess weight keeps us from doing so many things that we don't realize what a hold it has on our life.

    Enjoy your new adventures! emoticon

    Excellent thoughts, Kitt! Too many of us think it's only about "me," but the world isn't just about "me" -- it's about "me" and everyone around me. Thank you for sharing this powerful revelation!

    And have fun camping!!! You are living, girl!!!

    That's awesome, Kitt! Thank you for the motivation. I know that I have not done a lot of fun things with Rocky because of my weight. I know he would have loved for us to go to an amusement park together, but I couldn't do it. Luckily, he was able to go with family. I think one of the first things I'm going to do after I lose at least 100 lbs is to take my son to Disney World. Even though he's almost 19 years old, I think he would really appreciate that.

    Thank you so much, Kitt, for being such a great inspiration. You are awesome!!!
