ok so i am 19 and 250 pounds..not by my own choice but for thyroid reasons..i work out and eat right but nothing happens..well my fiance and his parents took me to the fair.. i told jonathan i was nervous cause i did not want to be embarrased about my weight...cause its the walk of shame when they make you switch seats on the ride because your the bigger one..its never happened before but i have never been this big.well we where on my favorite ride and then BAM it happened..the guy was soooooooo rude and loud going " oh nu uh you all got to switch" my fiance took him and said something i did not hear and then he said well fine get squashed then.... my fiance just sat back down and i just burst into tears...i did not ride anything else all night. i may not even go next year... i try my best to be self confident and hide my true feelings... but i mean its sooooo hard. any tips? keep in mind im soo out going and used to be super skinny..this is hard
