    Flash 55, Take 25

    She had excitement in her eyes as he approached her.

    As he brushed by her, not even giving her a second glance,
    she felt her heart sink.

    She debated whether or not to reach out and say something,
    but she stayed silent.

    She was so tired of having to explain to people who she was.

    Apparently I have changed a lot physically (duh!). People I know walk right by me because they don't recognize me. I've stopped trying to explain to them who I am. I'm so tired of it.

    My mom gets mad at me for not saying anything. It's just old to me. If she's with me, she will do the explanations for me.

    It's just so strange to have people you've known all your life walk right by you because they don't know you anymore.

    You should start wearing a T- Shirt that says " My Name is Jenn, Remember me?"

    Wonderful 55 Sign gurl!

    LMAO I like Mona's idea. I can imagine how tiring it must be...but at the same time, kinda cool. hehe

    Your 55...AWESOME!

    P.S. I gave you an award on my blog ;)

    I hear you. When I lost just 100 pounds, no one recognized me. I did not bother telling them who I was because it got old.

    Let me get out my money. I want to contribute to the t-shirt idea of Mona's!!!

    Great 55, you could invent a whole new identity for yourself just for fun!

    Mine's up too.

    LOL Feeling the same thing here. Wow... I also get tired of explaining how I lost weight. Time and time again... People recognize me only cause my hair is red and it stands out. But it is funny when they say "susy" is that you?? ?with a big question when saying it? They only recognize the color of my hair which gives me away. I might rather them not recognize me so I don't have to explain anymore. You might be the lucky one. LOL

    Have a great weekend Jenn!

    I think it's kind of cute that it bugs your mom so much, but I'm sure it's just cause she wants to brag about your success, Jenn. You know how moms are. ;)

    Happy Friday!!

    i can't imagine how strange it must be to be unrecognizable. don't be afraid to speak though. and yes, mona has a fun idea ;)

    your used to the new changes where other are not. Even by looking at your pics that you've posted of your progress I can see why they dont reconise you. Have you been somewhere yet where someone has said "have you seen Jenn lately" and your standing right there?

    G-Man said...

    You are unrecognizable till you open your mouth, then it's the same ole ascerbic, witty, and beautiful Signgurl..
    Great 55 Jenn, thanks for changing your mind..xoxox

    Once I was asked if I had a sister. I knew they meant me in my fat stage. ACK!

    Have a lovely weekend Sign!

    Ooooo....

    See, I can be EVIL.

    I would totally fuck with people's heads.

    If they don't recognize you, wouldn't it be HILARIOUS to see how they react to a "perfect stranger" knowing all sorts of things about them?

    Like you can just start talking to them randomly and just drop little things into the conversation that will freak them out, and make them go, how the HELL does that chick KNOW that?

    And then just walk away.

    Hee.
