2008 Cedar Point Reflections

I had such a blast at Cedar Point, but of course I have a blast every year. It is one of my favorite youth group traditions. Cedar Point is one of the best amusement parks in the country and having the most roller coasters makes it even better. I didn’t get to ride the Top Thrill Dragster, but I did get to ride the Blue Streak for the last ride of the day, which has been a tradition of mine since I used to go to Cedar Point with my best friend when we were kids.

For dinner we went to Johnny Rockets and if you ever been to a Johnny Rockets before you will know that it is a 50’s style diner and that they will crank up the music and the waiters and waitresses will do a choreographed dance. Well, aXiom’s very own Tom Henry jumped up and danced along with them to the Car Wash song and I captured it on my LG enV. You can see the video here….

But before that we had started a conversation about drivers license photos, so I pulled mine out. I have hardly ever looked at it since I got it taken, so I was shocked when I looked at it. I showed the girls at my table and they were shocked as well. One girl said that it looked like me 2,000 pounds ago, but it was actually about 50+ pounds ago. I posted the picture here along with a current one of myself, so you can compare them. I must add that it was so nice to be able to fit into the seats on the roller coaster much easier than last year.

It really is amazing to me when I look back at old pictures of myself. When you are losing the weight it is a slow progression, so you don’t realize it as much. But it is nice seeing little reminders like this, because it reminds you of where you do not want to be again.
