    I'm approaching 32 years old. So I've been out of college for awhile now. Anyhow, over the last 6 months or so, I've noticed that most of my friends have showed up on Facebook. I haven't seen some of them in 8-9 years. But I swear to god they're ALL fat. Or at least borderline. Most of them were skinny little bastards back in the day. So was I. But somehow I'm the only one that's still skinny. Guess I'm bragging. Oh well!

    Facebook's a funny thing! I have been getting the occasional friend request from high school buddies and friends from college. Most of these people I never thought I would ever hear from again. Then, one day...bamm - a freind request and a "hey, how you doin" to go with it. If I wanted to be friends, I would've stayed in touch.
    I hate that crap but I do like seeing what people look like and who their still friends with.

    As for their size, I guess a lot of these people have gotten bigger since we were 17 but doesn't everyone? It's not really somethign I even notice. Maybe it's because they finally have money and can buy the food they want and drink the beer they want (instead of Natural Ice). Maybe it's because a lot of us spend more time sitting on our asses for a job than running from house to house or bar to bar.

    Now go eat a cheeseburger!

    Consider yourself lucky that the fatty gremlins haven't snuck up on you!!

    Because, believe me....they sneak up on you!! (laugh) In college there were a couple years I was 40lbs heavier than I am now. I was a FATTAY!!
    After graduation, 30lbs of it came off without me doing anything.

    I'm probably 10lbs heavier than I was in high school and I've stayed in that range for many years now. I'm happy and as long as I stay away from the fatty gremlins, I'll be happy.

    When it comes to co-workers that I haven't seen in a while - yeah, a lot of people get PLUMP as they age!!:eek:

    I had my 10 year reunion last fall and I was suprised that almost everyone that had showed up looked the same as I remembered them in highschool. I've gained weight since school, but in no way have I gotten fat.

    I tell you what's funny is that when I was in HS, I kind of had the hots for this one girl. She totally ignored me for years. Anyway, I came to visit my folks a few years back. She found out I was in town and gave me a jingle. I was married by then so too bad. Come to find out she weighs like 200 pounds now. How surprising.

    Nothing yet, brand new!
    I haven't changed at all. Actually I have been trying to gain weight. Only recently I have put on a few pounds. I feel like I'm almost where I want to be weight wise. Some of my high school buddies are way out of shape. Old girlfriends look bigger, but they have kids now. Some have gotten better with age.
    I ran into an old flame several months ago. First thing she said was "You haven't aged at all in eight years!"
    I do feel like I'm still 25. ;)

ANyway, a buddy of mine was getting married and we took him out clubbin for his bachelor party and there was that chic up on stage swinging from a pole. She was F'n hot too. I couldnt believe it, we looked like those kids from Varsity Blues when they saw their teacher on stage.
