Last summer we were talking to a retired couple about their experiences at an indoor sky-diving facility located outside of Phoenix. The area (Eloy, AZ) is wide open desert land and a very popular place for real sky-diving as well. I have NEVER had any interest in *real* sky-diving but I always thought that the indoor wind-tunnels would be really fun – and after hearing about how much fun the couple had trying it, I was even more interested. Finally, one day I tentatively looked up the information on their website with a lot of trepidation because I knew what I was going to learn – I exceeded their weight limit restrictions.
I put the thought out of my mind but yesterday I received one of those million Groupon-type of emails and saw a great deal on the skydiving place (SkyVentureAZ). Suddenly an exciting thought crossed my mind – I might be light enough now! Sure enough, at my current weight, I am just under the 230 pound weight restriction! I quickly text’d my husband (who is REALLY afraid of heights) about trying this and he was, surprisingly, all for it. So, we are going to make a “date” weekend out of it sometime early next year.
I am so excited to get to move forward through one of the first new “doors” that has been opened by my weight loss. I’d love to zip-line, etc. and I’m getting closer to those possiblities as well. Now that I won’t be rewarding myself with food, I’ll have to look for things even better – life experiences!
