We went to Six Flags Great Adventure yesterday and it certainly was a roller coaster ride of emotions. I felt nostalgic.... I used to go as a teenager, now I was taking my children there. We've been to Orlando and experienced ALL of those theme parks... but for whatever reason this trip was nostalgic. I also want to add we were the 1st ones there! We parked in the very first spot in the very first row, that's a first for us! We bought season passes online and thought we could get them processed early, but the security gaurd told us that the place to get them processed was inside the park, and the park didn't open until 10:30 (the website said 10)so, basicly we were there 1 1/2 hrs early LOL!. Here comes a NSV.... the second family arrived... a Dad with his two boys, and he recognizes me from ELEMENTARY SCHOOL! I'm blown away, floored and giddy! After my weight gain over the past 12 years... I didn't recognize myself in the mirror. Now, after having my lap band surgery, experiencing this weight loss rejuvenation, I'm looking and feeling so much better. People tell me I'm on the way to the "New Me".... I just want to get back to being the "Old Me" and this guy just made me feel like everything I've done is so worth every pound I have lost. I was so happy that I hugged and kissed him in front of my husband! I even got to go on a couple of roller coaster rides.... something that I could not / would not do 48 pounds ago. I am questioning the fact that something may have happened to my port on one of the antiquated roller coaster rides in a post.... it feels slightly bruised today, almost like a pulled muscle, nothing major but non the less... that was the last ride of the day for me. My doctor never told me not to go roller coastering post op. Hopefully, I didn't mess anything up, I'm going to be optimistic that no damage was done. All in all it was a great family day... I'll update the port issue when I find out more!
