The Boston Logan International Airport has one of those full body scanners..... I'm not too sure how I feel about them. But I didn't have a choice if I wanted to get on the plane.
I will continue to be a Midwest/Frontier/Republic Airlines customer as long as they keep flying where I need to go. Also one of their Pilots was very nice and they should give him a raise! :)
Flying is definitely easier for me now that I am smaller. I use to dread it, I was afraid of being charged for two seats, which luckily never happened to me. I also use to be worn out and tired walking from one terminal to the next and feel exhausted just walking from the car to the terminal doors. Even airports where you can drive real close to the gate like Kansas City International and Boston Logan International would have worn me out. I didn't realize this so much until I saw a rather large lady huffing and puffing walking from the rental car drop off inside to the rental car counters. It was maybe a 200 feet walk if that and she was complaining to the lady next to her (it looked like her Mom) about the walk. Then she made her way to the shuttle bus and told the driver what a long walk it was and was all out of breath and barely able to get up the buss steps on her own.
I sat there wishing there was some way I could delicately bring up the topic of weight loss, but there wasn't. Had she mentioned something about being out of shape or needing to lose weight then I would have mentioned it, but she didn't say anything like that. I know if that were me I wouldn't have liked some stranger mentioning that I was fat and needed to lose weight. Large people already know that they are large and they don't need people to be mean and point out that fact like that. It's different if someone approaches you for help or asks about your weight loss. But it is rude to walk up to an over weight stranger and just bring up the topic.
My next trip will probably be to see my Dad, cousins and friends in California. My Dad asked me why I don't smile very much in my pictures. I told him, "Because you don't come see me", so he told me to get on a plane and go see him! This was the picture that got to him, I don't pull the pouty card very often because if I had done that growing up I would have gotten in trouble. But when he saw this pic he had to call me and ask what was wrong. This sad face wasn't as a result of him not visiting, that just came to mind when I was talking to him. I have been trying to get him to come visit me and he won't get on a plane. So he told me to get on one and go see him. Flying is so much easier now that I am smaller and have more energy. Definitely one of those little things that most people take for granted and you don't realize just how hard it can be until you are bigger.
