Waving hi from NC. I have been gone for a week moving from CA to NC and saw this article and wanted to share. It started out OK, honestly when I flew at my highest weight I was concerned about invading others space and tried to not do so. But when they encouraged photo taking that is when I said this is going to far. What do you think?

USA Today Travel released a video instructing passengers to post photographs to social media if they felt their space was invaded. One fat passenger responds.

It's not going to feel any better if someone pulls out one of those partition things either!

This angers me on so many levels. I can understand if someone is sleeping on you or has their feet up in your space but to shame someone for just being larger than average is discrimination. Honestly, I have no words at this moment.

HW: 398.8 6/6/16, SW:356 11/29/16, 3 year Goal:175 Hit at 5/18/18 @18 Months Post Op, Wish Goal 155 Hit at 21 Months Post Op. Still 2.5 weeks from 2 year and hit another GOAL!! I was just going to try maintenance over the holidays then work on losing my extra 10% for bounce back. But since I'm still losing, I adjusted my goal weight by 5 more pounds. Let's do this!

I can't believe a company would have the nerve to say take photos. And the reason for that is what? To prove they are in your space or to contact them and say what? SMH
