Day 550 – About 10 years ago I ran into someone I knew very well in an unfamiliar and unexpected setting. Surprising both of us. I ran to hug him. But he had absolutely no idea who I was. Zero recognition. Seriously! I had to (re)introduce myself to him! I was always baffled by that encounter! We’d sat next to each other for YEARS! I chalked it up to the fact that neither of us would have ever imagined we’d run into anyone we knew at that place and point in time. But after a series of recent coincidences, it just dawned on me – 10 f’ing years later – what had actually happened. I’d gained so much weight…he literally didn’t recognize me.

I am really not liking the “Memories” in my Facebook feed lately. Taking me back to 2008, it’s a reminder of how long my struggle with my weight has been. How long I’ve let it linger. Now, at day 550, I continue the fight.

There are others who have passed me on their weight loss journey. Some of which were admittedly inspired by my Fat to Fab Over 50 campaign. Good for them! I am THRILLED. Just f’ing giddy in fact! However, my frustration is compounded by the fact that when I looked at my reflection yesterday I saw my ass sticking out of the side of the chair. #FML

And then I hear from friends who encourage me. Erik, my dietitian, checks in with me. And I’m right foot left footing it again. The good news? I’d mistakenly let my life insurance lapse (ok…that isn’t the good news). But when they came to take my blood and get my vitals to renew…I weighed less than the last time AND my blood work came back perfecto! #progress, #nevergiveup, #thestruggleisreal,
