Seniorita, you be too mucho grande

Even after all I have done to work on getting healthier, the fact that I am still obese just keeps smashing me all right up in my grill.

Mr. P and I surprised the college kids with a 5-day cruise to Mexico for Christmas. We are all very excited about it. One of the stops is Cozumel and we have been debating what shore excursion we want to do. College kid posted on my FB page that she wanted to do this zip-line/snorkel combo so I took a look at it because while it sounds super fun, I KNEW there would be a weight limit.

I was right. There is. That isn't the problem. There is also a WAIST limit. 44 inches. My waist? 44 inches. Almost 4 feet. I am still almost FOUR feet around. I had to tell the kids, sorry, I can't spend the next 30 days petrified that I will get there and they say, "Seniorita, you are too fat."

Then Mr. P jumped in and said, they won't say THAT.




They would say, "Seniorita, you be mucho grande".

asshat.

You have such a way with the punchline. :-) Girl... go for it! Or... talk them into something else... just make sure everybody has fun!

Oh... and Hook 'em! ;-)

The cruise sounds terrific. I have gone with my family on excursions and took my turn parked on the beach with all the valuables (mp3 players, cameras, wallets, etc.) while they do the "Banana Boat" ride or snorkel. I am Camp Mom to allow the others to have fun. I had no interest and everybody else had fun.

The cruise will be so much fun! I really wanted to do a zip line in Maui until we got there - the price kinda held me back...um, plus a healthy amount of FEAR, lol!

OMG you gotta laugh at that.
Sounds like a great trip. Just suck in your gut when they put the harness on you!

"but those where the biggest pants they had"

Well, I still think you should go. You qualify today, right now, and you could just throw on a pair of spanx right before the measure and shave off a couple of inches anyway. Your hubs is a real charmer :)

I think Mr. P. may be related to my husband. Except Marcus would add something about his hot beans. (Frijoles Calientes!)

That sounds fuuuun!

What encouraged me to lose weight last summer was that I had to weigh less than 230 to go skydiving. I was so worried about it. I know you'll be fine! :) It's going to be a rgeat trip! :)

As a somewhat related story about husbands, today I told Steven I've lost 14 pounds, and he told me I never should have gained them in the first place. He never says stuff like that. I wonder what his problem was.

The trip sounds great!!!

You know what don't let the weight thing get you down. You have been on the right track it takes time and you will get there, just keep doing the way you are and then it will stay off!

Ya know, you have been doing so great this past year. I think it's just one of those deals where we didn't put on the weight overnight so it doesn't come off overnight. I bet a year ago you would not even have considered going snorkeling! I bet you will have a blast on the cruise.

Astarte said...

I am so, so sorry that you had to deal with that! You're still going to have a wonderful time, and don't you dare let that color your time on the boat!!!! We are all still SO JEALOUS of you!

Also, you are doing and looking better all the time, and don't you forget it!

To what you respond, "Tu madre."

Ashley & I did an excursion in Playa Carmen I think where we snorkeled down a river leading to the ocean, then got to do some ocean kayaking then got to enjoy the beach, delicious food, and ride bikes. It was fun! There was no kind of limit either.
