Health Club or Club Sandwich?
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.
