Health Club or Club Sandwich?

I was following someone on the greenbelt by the river today that reminded me of a situation from way back in 2001.

This woman looked just like someone I used to work with.  One day my coworker was doing one of those goofy questionnaires in a magazine and asked me if I wanted to try it.  Sure, why not?  I only remember one question.  Health Club or Club Sandwich?  I said health club and she rolled her eyes at me as if to say 'Ya right fat boy...I'm putting you down for a club sandwich.'

I was over 300 pounds then so I understood why she acted that way but it really hurt my feelings and I was pissed about it.  Today, as I recalled this memory there was no anger.  Only a smile, and the thought of wishing I could reintroduce myself to her and say look at me now.

My 4 year anniversary of maintaining my weight loss is this week.  I have learned over this time that losing weight is the easy part.  Keeping it off for the rest of your life is a monumental challenge.  I am blessed that I have a family that supports me and fortunate to have found a love of running which has helped me maintain my weight over the past 4 years.
