On social media the kids I graduated with all love to post pictures of themselves.
One thing is super consistent, everyone has put on weight. Most of the kids I know have turned into an adult, fat version of themselves. There are a couple of people I wouldn’t recognize out at the grocery store or bank they are so different. I feel basically the same. I know if I wanted to I could squeeze into my prom dress. I still wear clothing that I did in high school. What happened to my peer group? I think a strong part of the weight gain is poor eating. I think most people drink copious amounts of wine, beer and hard liquor on a weekly basis. Eating out and fast food is just so easy too. They must consume more fat, sugar and carbs than the average person should. Additionally, I would put money on most people not working out. For me I go to a core progression gym and take a group fitness class four days a week. The other three days a week I either go for a run, bike ride or swim in my pool. Once a month, after my fitness class, I do nutritional counseling. I try to be very careful with what I eat, sometimes I fall off the wagon though. Monthly check ups with the nutritional counselor ensures I don’t let any bad habits form and I am getting essential vitamins. It is a lot of work to stay in good shape, but I feel it is worth it.
