Well It Finally Happened, I’m Unrecognizable?

October 24, 2012

I guess I suspected it would happen at some point but I have to say that it still caught me by surprise. I checked into a hotel today and the front desk lady simply refused to believe it was me in the picture on my drivers license. There were several “that doesn’t look anything like you” and “you don’t weigh this much!” which, of course, made me feel pretty good. At the same time though, it was pretty weird and really extended the checkout process. I’m at a conference where I’m doing a talk tomorrow morning and there are several people here who haven’t seen me in a year or so, it will be odd to see their reactions if there are any.

I think this is something we don’t think about when making over our entire lives. People’s reaction to you and impressions of you will change, they simply will. I’ve noticed some are good and some are bad but almost all are different. I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was making me somewhat self-conscience so it will be interesting to see how well I do during my presentation. I did one a few months ago but that was about 80 pounds or so ago, it is a lot different now. Wish me luck.

Let me know what you think...
