My future car
When I look at it, I see a reminder of how out of control we were and I'll get to see it for another, oh 7 years or so. The Mr said we could get a different car or keep mine (it's almost 10 years old and doesn't even have 20K miles on it yet) but it has its own issues so I'll be more than happy to not deal with those issues once I get my 'old, new car.' I don't mind the way it looks and it's in perfectly fine condition especially since we just got brand new tires put on it, they shouldn't need any until we get rid of that one. Some would say "oh it should remind you of how far you've come!" (rainbows shooting out of every orifice), it will be hard to view it that way. To some degree, it will always be the car we were forced to get because we were too fat to fit into anything else. I will make the best of it though because another car payment is out of the question, I don't dislike it THAT much! ;-) Maybe I will find a way to attach a roof rack for kayaks and make it a car that fits into our NEW lifestyle. Honestly, I've looked at new cars online and there is nothing that floats my boat. Nothing screams, THAT is the car you want to sit like a lawn ornament in front of your house 360 days of the year so I'm perfectly happy to get a "free" car even if I don't care to remember how we came to get it.
Is there something you had to alter your preferences for because of your weight or your perceived issues with your weight?
