The picture above is what I look like today. Anyone who’s ever lost a significant amount of weight has that one pair of pants they keep as a memento of what they used to be. My memento is a pair of size 36 shorts that I bought in August 2009 because all my other shorts were too tight.
About two and a half years ago, I had an eye-opening experience. The school I teach at in Korea was selected for a reality show. I would be on television and, finally, the masses would see my handsome mug. Then, I sat and watched myself for a few brief moments on television.
