ON GETTING TUBBY

Yesterday I was thinking how tubby I’ve become since I was 20 years old. Back then, I fit into 28″ waist pants and I believe I weighed some where around 130 lbs. Now I squeeze into 32″ pants and I clock in around 160 lbs.

To be fair, I looked like really skinny when I was 20. I saw this picture of me from that time and I looked ridiculous. My head was still the same size but I had this skinny neck. It was like having a pumpkin on a toothpick. I don’t think I’d like to be that skinny again but I’m pretty sure it’d be healthier to lose a few pounds here or there.

I’ve always admired people who got into better shape as they got older. I bet it is sure fun to go to high school reunions for those people.

  1. You could just take Jerry Seinfeld’s approach and change the tag on all your pants to one size lower.

  2. Hey just wait a couple more years when you hit my age. I think our bodies switch on a sleeper gene that will cause wait gain, and unless you do some sort of extreme exercise, you cannot drop the fat. Sucks getting older in some respects.
