Airplane ride...I have overcome....
Wednesday, March 19, 2008
So how many of you have gone on a plane and dreaded sitting down to fasten your seatbelt and then have to ask for a belt extender? I have. Its been about 8 years now that I've had to ask for one every time I went on an airplane and so even though I love to travel, I dreaded having to struggle to fasten the seat belt. And then asking for an extender. mortifying.....
But with my recent efforts to lose weight, my first plane ride at the earlier part of this month - I was able to fasten my seat belt comfortably and I didn't need an extender.
I was on cloud nine the whole plane ride. I couldn't believe it. I know it may seem trivial to some of you who don't even think about it but for those of us who struggle to fit in....it was a moment of triumph. I have overcome this and will continue to overcome.
God give me strength to continue on this journey.
This week has been a little harder to stay on track with some things going on in my family but every time I think about that plane ride - I refuse to go back to what I was.....I have overcome....and I will move on to bigger and better things.
