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!

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.
