Mini-Goals - Officially Unrecognizeable
01-31-2007, 11:43 PM
My bank card has my photo on it...so (obviously) does my drivers license.
Today I was using my bankcard. The cashier looked at me, looked at the picture, and said "this isn't you". I said "would you like to see my ID" and showed it to him - he said "that isn't you either".
I said "it definitely was me 90 lbs ago" and he sort of smirked and said "well, at least its that way and not the other way around" and let me complete my purchase.
Time to get new pictures!

Mandalinn, that's so cool!
I should get new pics, but that's because I've matured a lot the past few years - and I dyed my hair quite dark, compared to the buttery blonde I used to be. But I think -90lbs is a MUCH better reason to get new pics! Congrats! :)

Its actually a bit more than 90, but I wasn't going to spout out with a number over 100...eek!

That is quite cool! How does it FEEL? Are you ever in awe of yourself? I was talking to my mom tonight about how HARD it really is to lose weight and keep it off.. so you've done quite the impressive job there lady! Congrats and keep up the great work :)

Not really! I dunno - I guess I ought to be. My head can't get around it and my eyes haven't quite been catching up to what is apparently going on with my body. I'm sure it'll hit me someday.
Thank you all for your fabulous compliments.

It is fairly exciting. Except I do have to go down the DMV and bank now, which isn't my favorite. Still, a great tradeoff.

Mandalinn, that is awesome. WTG.

That is great Mandalinn, had to make you feel good. Congratulations

Changing my driver's license picture is the very first thing I want to do when I reach my goal weight. Remember this feeling the next time you find yourself wanting to give up.

Good one Mandalinn! :cheer2: It sure beats the other way around. I'm working my way down to look like my Costco card...you know how their cameras either skew the picture too long up and down or too wide from side-to-side? :lol: Luckily the picture is stretched up and down so it makes my face look thinner. That's what I want to look forward to. Not quite the same thing but still...
hrbabe, that's quite an amazing transformation yourself!

Mandalinn, that's great! Talk about a non-scale victory. Keep up the good work.
