The seat wasn't too small!

I love to go to concerts. I love live music. I love hearing my favorite songs live.

I was always nervous going to concerts, theaters, arenas, etc, etc for one reason....the seats. I could definitely sit in the chairs, but there wasn't much room for moving, the arm rests were useless to me, and I was always worried that I was crowding the people sitting on either side of me. There was always that awkwardness of where to put my arms and not wanting to be in anyone else's space. I would look forward to the show starting because I knew everyone would just stand up.

Anyway, last night a small group of us went to see the Foo Fighters. There is no other word to describe the show other than AMAZING. I freakin' love the Foo Fighters and I'm not sure why it took me so long to get to one of their shows. Our seats were really far away, but we had a good view of the stage, Dave Grohl, and Taylor Hawkins.....mmmmm Taylor Hawkins. :)

Anyway, how am I going to make this weight loss related; you ask? Well, before we went to the show, we stopped at a bar across the street. Everyone had a few drinks. I had water. Of course.

On our way into the arena I started having my typical concert anxiety. You know, the how am I going to get comfortable in the chair anxiety. I was stressing. I was hoping for an isle seat and trying to figure a way into everyone agreeing to let me sit in the isle seat.

Then it him me. Sometimes I forget that I've been working my ass off; literally. I realized, duh Sarah, you've lost over 100 pounds. The seat is not going to be an issue at all.

In fact, I had so much room in that seat that someone else could have sat there with me. Well, Kelly did actually sit there with me! There was plenty of room in that seat. All the room in that chair was my private personal victory of the night.

I look like I've been caught doing something wrong!

Yea, we were really far away, but you could still see
really well.

Foo effin' Fighters!

One of the best shows I've ever seen.


  1. AWESOME!!!! I so know what you mean about forgetting that you have been busting your ass when it comes to certain situations. I totally relate!! Glad you had a great time!!

  2. Aren't the little NSV moments just breath taking? I love every single one of them, to some people it would be nothing but when you have been over weight the littlest things in life you can now do are incredible! Glad you enjoyed yourself!

  3. Sometimes it's the small things that matter most! :)

  4. LOL!! You are so silly... What a wonderful NSV!!!

    You are so awesome!!

  5. What a fantastic feeling I totally understand how amazing it must be to go somewhere you've been worried about and have no issues whatsoever fitting into the seat. I've given myself 3 months to be more comfortable in a plane seat then I'm off to the US! Argh.
