My Trip to Dallas
I just want to give an overview of the trip before I get into the specifics. I loved my weekend away from Va. It was relaxing, amazing and I really can’t think of words to describe it.
Okay, so remember how I made a big deal about me fitting into the seats. Back Story: A couple years ago I was on a flight in which I couldn’t snap my seat buckle in. I hid the belt under my shirt to not make a scene. I was embarrassed and felt like dying. On the plus, travel motion makes me sleepy so I got to hide the reality away in my sleep.
Fast forward to today, and a 140ish pounds lost. The first sign that I knew I would be okay was the seat in the terminal. When I sat down I had room to my left and to my right. I was excited to finally sit in the real seats. When I boarded the plane and I sat down, the first thing I did was snap my seat belt.
With extra slack too. I had to tweet the photo immediately. If you are reading this and you saw a strange, yet happy, black man take a photo of his crotch before take-off, you now know why.
Can I be honest with you? Okay, so I fit in the seat- check. But the real test was to see how I would do when I am sitting next to someone. In all of my 4 flights, no one sat next to me. In 3 of my flights no one sat in my row. Where was this luck when I was fat? Really guys I finally prepare myself and I get rewarded with the gift of row privacy.
Anyways, I am extremely happy that I can fit width wise in the seat. Now for my legs, this is a different story. Dear Airlines, some people are over 6 feet tall. Some people need leg room. Thank you for your non-consideration. ~Love, LaRell.
I totally told my diet to See You next Tuesday, literally. I returned to Roanoke on Tuesday and that’s when my diet returns, supposedly. I told you guys about my friend, who is like a brother, Micah. Our friendship is basically surrounded by food. When I was a sophomore, us and two awesome chicks would sit in an all-you-can serve Caf.
This is my first time in Dallas and I wanted to get the full experience. This means I am going on the Texas Diet. This diet is full of Tex-Mex, BBQ and everything unhealthy. I ate out practically every meal. I had my first Whataburger sandwich that weekend. I basically didn’t care what entered my mouth because it was my break from my diet.
Now, I am paying for all of that. My metabolism is HIGH and it wants me to eat more and more food. But it’s not the good food that I crave; it is the greasy, buttery food. It also doesn’t help that the weekend I come back to Roanoke the Greek Festival is alive.
Okay readers, I am doing a new diet starting October 1st. I need help to find out which diet to do. This is where you guys come in. Tell me of a good colon cleansing diet and I will try it out and see if it works. The worst thing is that I have an oral food allergy so I can’t eat uncooked veggies + fruits.
