The year was 2014, and my wife and I were taking our 3 kids out to the local pool for a fun day of swimming and rocketing down the waterslides.
As we were changing into our swim gear in the family change room, I happened to catch a glance of myself in one of the big, full length mirrors that were there, and I was SHOCKED by what I saw.
Who was this fat guy staring back at me in the mirror?
The thought that kept going through my head was “this can’t be me, right”?
It was an epiphany, like I was seeing myself for the first time with unbiased eyes, and I did NOT like the image that was staring back at me.
