Seat Belts

I hadn’t flown since I had gastric sleeve surgery. I used to have to get a seat belt extender when I flew. I would always get a seat next to the window so I could squeeze as much of myself next to the window as I could. I still felt as though I was spilling over to the next seat (and I am certain I was).

David and I flew to Las Vegas for our anniversary/birthdays last week. I was blown away sitting down and fastening the seat belt. I cried when I fastened the belt.

I didn’t feel squeezed in the seat. In fact, I was in the middle seat, and didn’t feel as though I needed to lean over to one side or the other. I had six inches of the seat belt left over when I belted it!!!! Do you see?!

Tears. Non-scale Victory. I may have gained some weight back, but this feeling was incredible. Typing this today, I am tearing up again as the feeling was so strong. Something so small and insignificant to so many, meant so much to me.

So…what victory have you had lately?

Feeling incredible. Blessings.
