    For that reason, I go as my present self. Wrinkles, fat and drab hair. They have seen the young me so let them have fun. something has to give them a laugh as most of them have gotten so prim and proper. ( I know they have not laughed as much as I have over the years because they don't have the "laugh" lines to prove it.)

    I have never been really heavy, just put on a few pounds every year since I quilt nursing babies and we got a barn-cleaner. But a few years ago I heard about eating eggs for breakfast. It's supposed to make you feel less hungry. That really works. At the same time, I have been eating a lot less sugar. Sugar as in white bread, white rice, granulated sugar, white stuff, etc. I ate butter, whole milk, and as much meat as I wanted. I know I felt better, but never weighed myself. I don't have a scale. Then I noticed that my wrists seemed to be smaller. I had lost 30 pounds in those two years without thinking about it. I hadn't really been trying to lose weight.
    Now my doctor says my cholesterol is high and he wants me to eat margarine and skim milk. What do you think? No way! My ratios of HDL, Triglycerides and Total Cholesterol come out to IDEAL. I'm never going back to the low fat- no fat junk.

    I also love class reunions. Males me sad how many we have lost tho. I didn't think I would like them as I was not really popular.

    Been there, done that except mine was my wedding day. I vowed then I would never attend any function that required that much prep work with what I now call the concrete underwear. LOL I have stuck to my vow so far. Missed the 10 and 20 year reunion for high school.

    Having recently decided to skip two 50th reunions this fall (I attended 3 high schools), I got an extra kick out of reading this--thanks, Ditter43! I'll have to copy this to the one friend who plans to attend and see if she changes her mind....

    Ditter, thanks for the laughs! You are a hoot! Went to my 5th and it was like the same old, same old of high school...same cliques, same caste system. Thought I'd go to my 40th...same old, same old, with a few happy "twists." Not going again. No need.

    Oh my gosh, I laughed till I cried. When one reaches a "certain age" it is soooooo easy to relate. Thanks for sharing. This was the best I have read in a long time.

    Thank you so much for your reunion story. I loved it and could picture myself in that situation, however, I am lucky that I got past that and have gone to class reunions. I find that other people in my class are just like me, gaining weight and getting older, but we are relaxing more and just enjoying one another's company. Funny, many that I didn't think were my friends are so interesting now and are interesting in my and my loved ones. Please, do not keep yourself to going to these, (especiallly after 30+ years) We have all turned into nice and fun people!

    My husband and I attended my 10th class reunion in 1980. I got the "most pregnant" award. I had our son 12 days later. We went for part of my 20th and just stood around and talked to a few folks then left. We didn't go to any more until my 40th, 4 years ago. Everyone was so laid back and nice. You would have thought I was their long, lost friend. I got more hugs and smiles than I ever did in school. I guess aging matures some people. One girl who was in my homeroom never spoke to me or smiled when I was in school. When she saw me at reunion, she gave me a big smile, hugged me and acted like we were bosom buddies. I just stared at her! haha I did have a good time though. At the dance afterward, I whirled my best friend around on the dance floor in her wheelchair. She had a terrible wreck a few years ago and nearly died. Four years later, today, she is walking even without her cane and driving herself to our church. I love all my friends, old and new.

    ROTFLMAO!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, you've made my day!

    BTW....How can anyone put a "boulder holder" on the "proper" way? Don't you need to be a contortionist or have extremely l-o-n-g arms? I know I can't reach around back! Bend over and stuff....works for me! LOL

    Have attended and enjoyed several reunions over the years. My 50th is coming up in September. That's a nice goal for more weight loss. ;-)
