Hey Weight Loss Nation!
I have a GREAT FEAR of FLYING, Specifically…Being in SMALL PLANES!
Fear of FLYING in Aircraft is called – AvioPhobia while the Fear of Flying on “Air” is called AeroPhobia. I have both!
If you REALLY want to Lose Weight…..AND Keep it off FOREVER, You MUST Live a Long-Term Healthy Lifestyle.
That includes –
1. Eating Real Food
2. Doing Physical Activity You ENJOY Doing
3. Having a POSITIVE Mindset……which Includes….Loving YOURSELF AND Your BODY…….Saying Positive Affirmations……Hanging around POSITIVE people….Getting rid of the Noise & Crap in your Head……AND Conquering Your FEARS!
Today…..I am concentrating on “Mindset.”
I decided to “conquer” my FEAR of Flying and being on a small plane…by SKYDIVING!
I researched Sky Diving Companies in Florida, and I found that Jump Florida Skydiving had a “top notch” safety record!
Safety is MY #1 Priority. I called Jump Florida Skydiving and scheduled my Jump!
When you arrive at Jump Florida Skydiving, you sign in with Gabbi at the Check In Counter.
Then you read & sign Waivers……you must testify to your age & your weight.
You must be 18 or older and you must be under 230 lbs. to sky dive as TANDEM.
TANDEM means you are literally ATTACHED to a Jump Florida Skydiving Instructor, with harnesses.
Next, you and your group of sky divers…. will be given about a ten minute instructional session, which goes over the process of the pre-board, on-board and skydiving process, with your TANDEM instructor.
Now….it’s time for your Gear!
One of the Jump Florida Sky Diving Instructors …..puts your skydiving harness on you.
Then you are ASSIGNED your TANDEM Instructor. I was TANDEM with co-owner Tim Jones.
When you visit the jumpfloridaskydiving.com website, you’ll see lots of pictures of Tim. He’s got personality!
I had 6 words for Tim……”Your Wish Is At My Command.”
Tim laughed and he went over final instructions and checked my gear AGAIN, before we headed over to the plane.
I boarded the plane with 6 other Sky Diver’s in my group All with our TANDEM Instructors at our backs.
During the ride up to the 14,000 altitude in the small plane, I started thinking about positive affirmations.
I began to feel focused and was able to concentrate.
Then it was my time to jump!
Tim was in full control and I was able to “let go” and allow him to be in charge. It’s pretty easy when you’re attached to someone and you know they want to live as much as you do!
The “Free Fall” is about 1 minute and 45 seconds.
That 1 minute and 45 seconds was TERRIFYING!
It is when Tim pulled the “rip cord,” and the parachute opened, that I suddenly felt….a “natural high.”
You immediately slow down, there is a “mild” breeze and an obvious “calm” surrounding you. Very peaceful.
I felt like I was “Flying.”
Tim went over my final instructions for landing and I slid in on the grass with a perfect landing!
I can tell you that I can now get on a plane without having to take xanax.
I can tell you that I can also get on a small plane without having heart palpatiations and anxiety. I can travel this way in the future.
I still feel uncomfortable with heights, but I don’t have a severe “fear” of it anymore.
See what I mean!!!!
Skydiving has helped me CONQUER my fear of flying!!!

According to the U.S. Parachute Association Website….The sport of skydiving continues to improve its safety record.
In 2017, USPA recorded 24 fatal skydiving accidents in the U.S. out of roughly 3.2 million jumps. That’s one fatality per 133,571 jumps—one of the lowest rates in the sport’s history!
Tandem skydiving has an even better safety record, with one student fatality per 500,000 tandem jumps over the past decade.
According to the National Safety Council, a person is much more likely to be killed getting struck by lightning or stung by a bee.
