I ran into a friend from high school that I haven't seen in a long time. It was a total surprise to run into him last night because I wasn't expecting to see him until tonight.
After we talked for a few minutes I got the, "So, I know I haven't seen you in a long time, but I swear you've lost weight. I could be wrong. My wife said it wasn't totally appropriate to ask."
Aww...I was touched. I was like, "Hell yea! I've lost an ass load of weight!"
Then the conversation switched to an upcoming high school reunion. Most of the guys I ran into were like, "Yea, who wants to do that...."
I was like, "I do! You guys know I'm a vane b*tch! Most people gain weight after high school...I went the other way. I'm busting in there and I'm yelling, look at me people! I look friggin' fantastic! Go ahead, ask how much I've lost!"
We all had a good laugh after that, because they know it sounds exactly like something I would do.
Anyway, I totally busted out my size 10 jeans last night and they fit amazingly. I actually didn't recognize myself for a minute too. I was at my Momma's house for a hot second and I saw myself in the mirror. Clearly, I knew it was me, but it was strange. I didn't look like me. I actually thought I looked, dare I say, skinny. Then it made me smile.
So, when I later ran into the guys from high school that I haven't seen in a long time and the one guy was commenting on how I looked, it made me feel super awesome. I mean, I haven't seen this guy in a long, long time. I know I gained more weight since the last time I saw him, so it made me realize that I'm smaller than I was in high school. I hope that all made sense right there, because it sounds a little confusing.
