Thanks to Curvy Em for awesome work getting this board sparked again. The stuck thread she started sparked this question in my mind: what are a few of the things that you either used to do or always wanted to do, which you consider yourself too big for now? This could be because you know you couldn't do it, or because you are worried that you couldn't do it, or because you think it would be embarrassing, uncomfortable, or whatever. So tell us what, and if you are willing to also why.

I'm too fat to ride my old 12-speed bike--bent over like that my thighs run into my belly when I peddle. :doh:

I'm too big around for most sports wear--trying to find bike shorts in my size is almost impossible, I doubt if I could find hockey equipment that would fit me anymore. :mad:

I'm too heavy to be comfortable skating on a frozen pond just because everyone has skated on it safely. :eek:

I'm sure you can come up with more interesting ones than that!

Regards;

-Ed

I'm too fat to ride most amusement park rides which sucks because I've only recently gotten brave enough to actually do it.

I'm too heavy to jump on a trampoline. Whether I am now or not, I've always felt like I was, even as a kid.

ps: I might have made answers that sound like bummers, but in truth I like this topic :)

I've not even attempted. I just *know* I am! lol

The only things I've had problems with are small turnstyles, cinema seats and booths. However in class if I get there a bit late I'm too fat to squeeze behind everyone, so I either have to haul my ass over the table or crawl under LOL

Too big a belly for recumbent bikes at the gym (my knees keep bumping the underside of my stomach!)

Jumping out of a plane, perhaps?

Certain restaurant booths, as we've discussed.

Add me to the list of amusement park rides other than the tilt-a-whirl and of trampolines...

Another thing is seatbelts in other people's cars, I'm considering getting an attachment but truthfully I sorta get a kick out of their reactions when they realize I'm too fat for the back seat! ;)

Oh and seats in an arena or airplane, etc. My s/o affectionately refers to them as belly rests instead of arm rests :D

Horse back riding (I like being kind to animals!) and the like too...swings at a park cause I'm pretty sure the whole structure will collapse

And I love it when my cousins suggest water slides, yup, I wanna get my fat a$$ stuck and make a 100 little kiddies behind me wait while they free me! :rolleyes:

Add diving boards to that list, I've always been convinced they'll snap under my weight...

Oh and I'll just mention this even though it's somewhat unrelated as I do it anyways: taking elevators, I love how when it starts to get full everyone starts counting how many people are in it versus how many should be, I always get counted as 2 or 3! :p

Ok, last thing, most exercise equipment as twisted as that is! lol Thankfully my s/o is in engineering and has since assured me that even though an elevator, bridge or equipment says weight capacity is XX that is more of a legal disclaimer than anything else and usually these things can withstand up to twice what the warning says...not that I would chance it in an elevator or on a bridge though! lol

I know I'm too big for the swings these days, but I still get a kick out of testing it--I played in a park twice last month just for the opportunity to test out the swings lol.

As for the waterslide....I also know I'm too big but I have this fantasy of being someone else's float....:wubu:

I like going on the swings and hearing that 'clunk/crack' noise every time the giant, thick metal links swing from 1 position to the other! The kids don't make a noise, but me? It sounds like artillery!

Em, try AMC cinemas. Those things have massive seats and folding arms. I could fit three of my butts in them.

See, I'm not a BBW, but playground equipment is too damned small. I was playing on a slide at a birthday party and my hips got stuck! /angry rant about things I shouldn't be doing

I think that modern bicycles are not designed to fit humans in general. I'm pretty slim, but I still think that narrow little wedge of a "seat" is functionally more similar to a suppository. ><

Definately the amusement park rides... I think the last time I tried to ride one was when I was 18 and two attendents had to use their weight to lock me in

Airline and bus seats and forget the standard seatbelts... always need that extension. Then there are the bathrooms and squeezing through the very narrow doors.

Honda civics and any economy car

It's already been said... but horses, I used to ride when I was younger and I'm too scared to ever want to do this again in case they say I'm too heavy to ride.. plus I don't think I'd want to put the horse under that kind of stress..

Chairs with arms... I have this thing about not sitting in them in case I get stuck. Even if they look like I'd fit.

I don't know what else really... but I did break the bed... which is embarrassing.. my partner put this thick plastic thing where the bed had completely given up.. it was on my side so I knew it was me. He politely didn't say anything, just tried to make it more comfortable for me. I sleep on a mattress on the floor now till I can afford another bed. I'm not -that- heavy I don't think but I still managed to break it... I'm putting it down to crappy work.. :blush:

Hey IG,

At around 210lbs you will not be too heavy for a horse, hun!
I know some guys over your weight riding a horse every week.
You just need to search for the right horse. Just like with people, you have strong and weak horses, strong and weak people...

Hugs, GPL.

Poor horse though.. I don't think I could do it.. just because the horse can't turn to me and say 'You're too heavy.. get off!' so I wouldn't know if it was in pain... but then again.. it might try and buck me off which would be a good indication that it didn't like me on it. haha...

Anyway, it's not really an issue since I haven't been out in so long and don't plan to go horse riding anytime soon. Plus.. I don't think I'd be able to get on! haha
