Sit In Any Seat You Choose!

March 21, 2016

For many of us with obesity, the challenge of sitting in any type of seat we choose is a happens regularly. When we enter a restaurant, a friend or family member's dining room or other social settings, we have learned to quickly scan the area for the type of seat that will accommodate our size. It is a huge relief when we are able to fit comfortably in any seat we choose without concern. For WLS'ers, it is one of the most popular goals and non-scale victories.

The goal to "Fit comfortably in any seat I choose" is a popular goal in the ObesityHelp Goal System that OH members want to achieve and have accomplished! After our weight loss surgery, our bodies reduce in size and weight which allows us to sit in a lawn chair, movie theater seat, airplane seat and other seating accommodations without worrying about the fit and comfortability.

Is this one of your goals? Have you already achieved this?

Can't wait til I fly next time and don't have to worry about "spilling over"! ~ Juniper_Pixie

I fit in an airplane seat last week, and a theatre seat on Christmas day!!!  I no longer am afraid to sit down on chairs fearing the might give way. I will have to wait for summer to try out all of the lawn chairs, although I don't think I will have any problems again. ~ Christina F.

It is the BEST feeling! Any seat - any where - YAY! ~ sonatasmom1

As a frequent flyer, this is an important goal for me. ~ movis

It would be fabulous to be comfortable anywhere. ~ LadyScorpio3
