    Heh, yes, Christina Ricci is an interesting one to be compared to because she can be cute or just strange looking! LOL, but it's definitely not something that happens to me when I put weight on in my face!

    It was also funny to have some of your closest friends look at you like they were seeing you for the first time

    Thanks for the birthday wishes!

    I told my sister about it, and she sent me a pic she's had of me for the last 5 years... This was taken of me at my thinnest! Hopefully I'll be there again soon and then some!

    Default How Christina Ricci made my day :)

    So this weekend, 3 of my guy friends that I offroad with took me for a weekend getaway to Palm Springs to celebrate my birthday. Well, 2 of them haven't seen me since I started on Phen so I was curious if they would notice that I'd lost weight. (Side note: I realize that might sound a little strange, as I've mentioned I have a BF, but I'm a total tomboy and have a fantastic BF who never gets jealous of my guys).

    Anyway, I know you're asking what does this have to do with Christina Ricci right? Well, the first night no one said anything, so I assumed no one was going to.

    However, Saturday night the guys took me to this amazing steak place for my birthday and while we're waiting for our meals to arrive one of my buddies is staring at me so strangely that it was starting to make everyone uncomfortable. Finally, another buddy says "Yeah, isn't it funny how much she can look like a girl when she's not dirty?"

    Which is something I get a lot because when I'm offroading I never wear make up and I'm always in Jeans and a t-shirt. So I'm pretty used to this, but the buddy that's staring just starts shaking his head and goes, "no, no I'm used to her looking like a girl by now, but how is it that I've known you almost 3 years and I've never noticed how much you look like Christina Ricci before just this moment?"

    LOL, now the other 2 are looking at him strangely and quickly respond with a series of objections that went something like:
    "what?"
    "no she doesn't?"
    "what are you smoking?"

    Well, staring buddy will not be deterred.... He says, "seriously guys... look at her!'

    LOL, and now all 3 of them are looking at me like they've never seen me before in their lives. And I'm feeling an intense desire to crawl underneath the table.

    To which one of them respondes with : "Holy Sh!t! You're right, she does."

    And the third says, "Seriously, how have we never noticed this?"

    I just smiled and said "I've heard that before, I think it's my big eyes." And the conversation moved on, but randomly through the night I'd catch them looking at me like they'd really never noticed me before.

    The funny thing is I used to get compared to her a lot when I was at my skinniest, because when I lose weight the shape of my face changes. I thought about sharing this w/ the guys, but was so amused at how confused they all were that they hadn't noticed this I decided to keep it to myself!




    LOL this made me want to ask you all a question though....
    What's the strangest weight loss related compliment you've received?
