Since August of 1995.
"You Oughta Know" was storming the airwaves, Friends dominatied tv and I was about to start my last year of undergrad.
My family had traveled to Rochester, NY to visit my father's youngest brother and his family. It was our one and only trip there. Rochester wasn't much to speak of, though I do recall going to a dairy shoppe and ordering "the largest cone east of the Mississippi." They piled the chocolate soft serve so high on the cone that it took TWO big gulp cups to contain it all as it started to tumble. Quite a spectacle. Story of my youth.
During that trip, we went to the beach at the lake. Photos were taken. A week later, when the photos were picked up at the local CVS photo counter...I was so ashamed. All the weight I'd lost my first two years of college - due to not eating - I'd gained back. I was 200+ and flabby. But not for long. I started running, using the barbells in the basement, and embarked on a now life long fitness journey that has taken me through running, yoga, weight lifting, pilates, plyometrics, swimming, etc etc etc. I love all of it.
