The Holding Pattern
I agreed that we needed new hobbies and started naming off things that will be a part of lifestyle but everything I thought of that I wanted to do had some weight limits to them. I just burst into tears and said "so we're still held back by this f***ing weight and in a holding pattern." I am about 85 lbs from being able to ride a roller coaster based on the recommended weight at many amusement parks, I don't want to pay the "fat tax" on a higher weight limit kayak when we buy them so I probably have about 40-50 lbs for a regular kayak and of course the zipline goal is about 70 lbs away. We feel this kind of staleness in what we can and can't do right now. I mean we know losing 181 lbs and 165 lbs is a life-changer and its allowed us to do things we never thought we would (hot air balloon ride) or little things we missed (fitting into a booth or chairs with arms, feeling entitled to doing my photography in public instead of not feeling worthy of being there, hell even going out in public without being self conscious). But when you're itching to get on with it and do other things you're yearning to do, the holding pattern feels like forever.
If anyone has any suggestions on things we can do that have weight limits of 325 or less, throw 'em out there. We're not coming up with anything original on our own and having a list to choose from might help!
