This time, besides reliving my former athletic glory (I'm picking up my orthotics on Tuesday, btw), I also found a lot of pictures. The one at the left is from around the time I started this supposed weight-loss blog called "Yet Another Weight Watchers blog." I was around 20 pounds thinner then. Maybe it didn't have the desired effect. I don't think I can blame the weight gain on that as much as on being 6 years older and discovering the metabolic joy that is being in my 40s. Still, I looked pretty good. I want to try that out again.
I also found some pictures of my old, glamorous but high-stress job. I miss a lot of the fun people I knew from that time, but not the "fun" of sleeping in a different crummy hotel every other weekend. I am still using those frequent flyer miles to pay for plane tickets.
It was the modern version of "This is Your Life," a really interesting way to reflect and take stock. What parts of the old me do I miss and want back? What things were worth leaving behind? What do I want to turn up in my future results?
