A New and Embarrassing Experience

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

So Saturday night the wife and I went over to a friend’s house. When I was getting dressed, I put on my shirt 2X it was really loose flapping all over the place around my stomach but, knowing I only own 2X shirts. I decided to tuck it in (understand, I have not tucked in a shirt for about 7 years with of course the usual exceptions). Thinking I will have to deal with it and hoping that nobody notices how fat I am. (I feel that tucked in shirts just outline the belly)

Low and behold, when we got there I found a seat at the table and sat down as soon as possible not to attract attention to myself. When one of my “buddies” saw me and yelled out how much thinner, I look and proceeded too question me about my diet. Even though it felt good, it was also embarrassing and of course, I told them all about SP. I still have 45 lbs to go!

    Congrats to you that people are noticing! It is a funny experience, isn't it? I have a similar reaction - pride and embarrassment at the same time - I hate to be the center of attention!

    I am proud of you - sounds like you are doing great! Let's hope that our Yankees do as well!

    Way to spread the Spark!
