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.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
