NSV at a Theme Park



Recommended Posts

So, Friday, I spent the day at Cedar Point here in NE Ohio with my wife. We got there at about 10 AM, and we ended up leaving at 10:30 PM. In that time, I managed to ride almost every roller coaster that they had in the park. Only one of them was I completely too big for.

Sure, some of the safety bars and harnesses were a little on the tighter side, even for their larger riders areas, but six months ago, I wouldn't have been able to ride anything.

I had a blast with my wife, and as of today, my BMI is now enough under 40 that it no longer rounds up to 40.

Congratulations, it's a great feeling, isn't it? I had a similar experience recently and it was sheer joy to be able to get in the harness without having to leave the ride.

Great Job on your success so far!

Riding roller coasters in general? Oh, yes. However, this was my first time to Cedar Point, ever.

Congratulations! How exciting on all levels. Those roller coasters are so exciting.

I grew up in NW Ohio. Cedar Point was an annual event for our family. Especially loved the Hallo-weekends! I haven't had the courage to get on Top Thrill Dragster or the Millenium yet. Maverick left my head spinning so I figured that's about as thrilling as I need.

Top Thrill seemed like it was too long a wait for far too short a ride. 17 second ride for an hour and a half wait? No thank you. Sadly, Millennium Force was down for maintenance all day on Friday.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
