Let Me Reintroduce Myself

I went to a wedding this past weekend where I unexpectedly ran into an acquaintance from college. I recognized him right away but he didn't recognize me until I reintroduced myself. The last time he saw me I didn't wear glasses, had long hair and was 50 pounds heavier. The vast majority of everyone I know now met me after I lost the weight and can't imagine me the way I was. I am just so grateful that I was able to experience that moment of "oh my gosh it's you!" That was worth my old weight in gold.
