How to be a Fat B #10

Last week's project was Being Visible and Brave. This week, I finally got to give it a go. I did something that I never thought I would do, least of all because of my size: I went indoors skydiving.
The experience made me very aware of my size. First of all, I was handed the flight suit with the words "Try this one. If it's a bit tight, I'll get you a different one". Awkward. 

It didn't fit. Not even a little bit. I couldn't get it over my knees. So I had to go up to the man, ask him for a larger size and then it still didn't really fit. I had to ask my friend to zip it up for me as I couldn't zip it over my stomach on my own! I didn't want to ask for an even larger size, so I made do with the one I had.

Then there was the skydiving itself. It took place in a large, clear tube where not only the people in your flying group could watch, but so could anybody and everybody who wandered into the building. 

I was awful at the skydiving. I pretty much just bounced along the bottom and I could feel my cheeks flapping about. I even saw a man watching and laughing. But you know what? I enjoyed it! I went back for my second go and I was better that time. 

I am fat and I made myself super duper visible. And I loved it! 


  1. whaaaaaat that honestly looks like the scariest thing- and like so much fun! i wanna try it! haha xx

  2. This looks amazing. I was watching a documentary about Felix Baumgartner and it made me want to go skydiving(although maybe not from the edge of space).

    1. Haha definitely not from the edge of space!

  3. It looks like such an incredible experience! I think indoor skydiving would suit me much better than jumping out of a plane! I am not good with heights! xx

  4. This is awesome and looks like a lot of fun! What a great way to "be visible'!

    1. I don't think I could have been more visible without dressing as a giant chicken!
