Just found an e-mail, and this accompanying photo, which I sent to a friend in 2004 to show off my weight loss. I had just lost 126 pounds in a year's time.
Here's what I'd written:
Because my top is blousing out in the back, I look heavier thru the middle than I actually am. My torso is actually my thinnest area, but it's hard to tell that here.
Yeah, hard to tell if you are blind. Or on crack.
I've since gained back forty of those pounds. Why is it we can't appreciate our size/looks/youth/etc. until they're gone?
