I have a theory…

29 04 2009

Over the last few months I’ve been getting back in contact with numerous people that I used to go to school with.  People I’ve not seen in at least 20 years.

So it’s been a bit of a blast from the past, and an ego trip all at the same time.

Some of them look exactly as I remember them, taking into account we’re all adults now, while others…  Well perhaps not so much, they’re recognisable, but seeing them makes me feel a whole lot better about myself.

Now I know I’ve battled with my weight my entire life, often losing the battle, but I have a theory about that, and that is that while I’ve been overweight for most of my life (I’m working on rectifying that even now) I believe that the excess weight I’ve had has plumped my skin out nicely over the years so that as it’s finally melted away, I’ve been left with a lot less lines than some other people my age.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t very happy about that! 😉

I look my age, I rarely get asked for I.D. when purchasing alcohol or entering a venue that has an age limit, but all that taken into account I really don’t think I’m doing so badly.

The big school reunion, the 20 year one is next year, I’m even more determined to work my ass off now (literally)!

Waking up early tomorrow morning for the gym doesn’t feel quite so bad now… 😉
