Did you go to your reunion? Do you recommend going?

Thanks. Debating it.

I went. Boring.

My memory capsulated the eighties like my own personal cheesy Jon Hughes movies and going back broke the illusion

Went - Glad I did. Finally was able to bury all the ghosts that had haunted me for 20 years. It's amazing what a little time can do to humble people. Showed me that they weren't really better than me at all! In fact - I was one of the few that turned out NORMAL! :) Go - and remember you don't have to stay - you can leave if you feel uncomfortable.

I went and had the most fun catching up with those who were my closest friends back then. Like anything much is what you make of it and how you go into it.

I could depend upon your class size, too. My class was only about 125 people and more than half showed up, so I knew every single person there and it was quite fun. My friend went to hers and it was okay - her class was several hundred and I think there were more people at mine, and of those who showed up she didn't quite remember everyone who was there.

Here's a question - why wouldn't you go?

I went to my reunion spring of 07. It was my 20 year high school reunion. I used it as a motivator to lose weight and it really worked for me. I lost 30 pounds and I felt great. I moved away shortly after HS so no-one had seen me since then. I was fat in HS and people were shocked to see me looking trim. And since no-one had seen me in many years they did not know I had lost the weight the previous year. They assumed I had been looking this HOT for 20 years. I felt great. I was also happy to connect with so many people and feel pretty normal. Most of the people stayed in the city I grew up in and they never ventured out. I grew up in the BIG city and yet these people seemed like they were stuck in the 80's. Not very cosmopotan like you would think considering where they live. I am glad I went!

I went to my 10 year and had a good time. I went to my college 5 year and had a good time, too. Mine was small and informal (a brunch). I didn't even have to pretend I invented the Post-it. :-)

I went to my 20 after being persuaded by a friend. I hung out with exactly who I hung out with in high school, so you can't have any illusions of being all adults and mingling. Don't get me wrong, I was so glad to see them and we had a great time, but I'll tell you that seeing the pix was what got me here at PT and on a diet! My 2 best friends from h.s. looked absolutely amazing and I felt like the cute girl who got fat. I look at that pix now anytime I feel like giving up. And it's made me look forward to the next one because I DO NOT want the way I looked at my 20 to be the way they remember me!!!

Everyone mingled at my reunion. Or at least, I did. And if they don't, you can!

I thought it was fun. It was interesting to see how the conversations had changed over the years. At the 5 year it was "Where did/are you going to school? What's your major?" at the 10 year is was, "What are you doing? Who did you marry?" at the 20 year is was "How many kids do you have? Did you use IVF?" haha I'm almost afraid of what the 30 year holds "How long have you been divorced? Ever try Viagra?"

No, I didn't. But that was because we had just moved about 900 miles away. Also it was really poorly plained.

I would have loved to have gone, if we still lived local we would have.

I didnt go because I was ashamed of how I looked, but afterwards hooked up with a few friends from high school. I saw pics and talked to some of them. I found out some of those people were bigger than me and still went. I wish I would have gone. I am going to go next time. Only diff? Next time I am gonna be one HOT MAMMA! LOL.
