Let me just say that I loathe myself for falling into that age-old trap of trying to lose weight a month before your high school reunion. I can't believe I'm playing that dumb game, but I am. I'd like to consider it Incentive, since I know I need to get better at exercising anyway, but I feel like it's more like Panic than Incentive. So I've been working out, probably my second least favorite thing to do behind getting a sonogram.

Don't you hate when you go to the gym and get on the machine next to SuperWoman? It's happened to me two weekends in a row. I'm not sure men care so much, but the first thing a woman will do is look at her neighbor's screen and compare. And the girl next to me goes harder, longer, and farther than me. By a long shot. I feel like Rocky Balboa if I can do 30 min, but this girl does an hour at a faster pace. And it's all I can think about the whole time I'm exercising: all the excuses for why I haven't decided to deal with the 20 lbs I've gained since high school until a month before it matters.

Plus I'm a liar. It's probably more like 25.
God, I hate exercising.

Do what I do; ask them to slow down because their hard workout is causing my beer to slosh and spill.

When I went to my 20th HS reunion (missed my 30th because I was in Iraq), everyone had gained weight. But the real concern was over who still had hair (guys) and who had selective surgery (gals).

So I say, "Don't worry about it! Just go and have a great time."

I hate going to the gym for that specific reason as well, and by the way, you look great even though you think that you need to lose 25 pounds. Stop that you are wonderful the way you are!! Miss ya Kelly
