So yesterday I went to this cookout and I saw some friends (and friends of friends) that I haven't seen in a long while. There was a girl there that I've met maybe 3 or 4 times in the past and when I said hello and called her by her name she asked me where we had met. When I told her my name she said "you look totally different! I didnt recognize you!". It made me feel pretty good. :carrot:

WTG! Isn't it bizarre though? We see ourselves every single day, and have a tendency to focus on our own imperfections. Sometimes it takes being seen by someone who still holds our "old" image in their mind's eye before we realize how truly different we look!

HAHAHAHA OMG ME TOO!
Facebook has trained me to wanna "like" everything!
The same way my DVR has trained me to wanna "rewind" everything!

WAY TO GO, MATT!

Hahaha, me too....I keep catching myself wanting to rewind the radio when the people on NPR say something I didn't quite catch!

Way to go, Matt. And yes, you DO look totally different :)

That's a fabulous NSV Matt, just shows how far you've come.
A few people at the gym keep telling me they have to do a double take sometimes when they see me because they're not sure it's me, and it's such a buzz isn't it!

What a FABULOUS (yet odd) NSV, one I've had many times.

On two separate occasions, I had people walk right past me in the street. I've had two others inquire as to where I am - they asked my DH and I was standing right next to him. I've had to introduce myself by name to well over a dozen people, people *I've known* for many years.

It is really such an odd thing and one that most people will never experience. It is wonderful to be able to speak about it here at 3FC.
