Disney, rides and weight loss

Ever since I can remember, I have had a fear of heights.  I don’t mind fast rides, but if they go up high, it’s terrifying for me.

Give me a fast, spinny ride any day.

About a week and a half ago, I joined my husband on a business trip and took our son to Disney.

This was the first time I wasn’t on a Jet Blue flight in a long time.    Jet Blue definitely has more leg room and bigger seats.

I fit in the seat no problem and had tons of room on the lap belt.

I’m noticing big changes in my attitude and my confidence.  I’m willing to get in pictures, be silly and go on rides that I wouldn’t have even touched before.

I think part of it was I was alone at the park with my son a lot as my husband had work to do.

I used to hate rides like Dumbo and even the kiddie roller coasters.  Now I go on them and actually have fun.

I even went on the Tower of Terror and enjoyed it (although I was a little shaky and heart was beating a mile a minute for a while after).  I would do it again though.

I feel like the more weight I lose, the more I want to try again.  I don’t think I’ll ever want to go on a huge roller coaster, but at the same time, I don’t enjoy it so why would I do it.

Maybe next time at Disney, I’ll conquer Splash Mountain.
