"i didn't recognise you!"1 month

Has anyone got this?

I have gained around 80 lbs in the past year and I've been having comments like this from people I only see occasionally.

Oh yeah, for sure. This just happened a few weeks ago when i saw a colleague I hadn't seen in a few years. I was standing about 5 feet away from her in a line and could tell she look right past me without recognizing me. So I said hello and she "oh hey, I didn't recognize you!" That was the clearly the polite way to say, "wow, you got so fat." I guess I did put on at least 60-70 lbs since I saw her last though.

I got one of these last weekend.
I was at a convention and ran into a girl I knew in middle school, I've doubled my weight since she saw me last. She only recognized me by name. At least I wasn't the only one who had filled out.

I had this happen at my 10th high school reunion years ago. I had grown a beard since high school and gained nearly 50 pounds. I remember someone finally saying, "What happened to the old Zonker?"

My reply: "I ate him."
