A little bit of a funny story... I have been morbidly obese for years, to the point that I stopped going to amusement parks after having been asked to get off of a few rides due to my size.
A few months ago we took our 2 year old to Sea World in San Antonio and in the Sesame Street Bay of Play there are several "kiddie rides" that she wanted to go on. My husband didn't want to take her and I felt obligated as her mommy. I was having some anxiety attacks waiting in the line and as we boarded the first ride, I got her all seated and stood there waiting for the ride attendant to pull down the lap bar so that I could sit and pull my "gut" over the bar so that I would fit in the ride. He pulled the lap bar down while I stood there in front of the seat holding my "belly" up and I went to slide in and slide right down with SEVERAL inches between me and the bar. He then looked at me like I was NUTS because of the look of complete confusion on my face.
I felt AMAZING!
