I've done this before, but as I keep losing weight, my looks keep changing. I'm finally looking like my image of myself again. In that face I can see the girl I used to be. 135 pounds ago that wasn't the case, and it feels good to feel like myself again. What's been interesting to me is that most of "look-alikes" have changed as I've slimmed down. Annette Bening has never popped up in the mix before. Kristen Bell has. Is it a shame that I have no clue who she is? Apparently I look less like Isabella Rossellini than I did a few pounds ago. (Yeah, right. As if.) I spent much of my income in my twenties on Lancome trying to look like her, and it never worked. Paula Deen has usually shown up before. I wonder why she didn't this time.
All of my life people have told me that they know or that they just met someone who looked just like me. That statement was usually followed by "...and he was adopted too!" (It's usually a male.) My sister by law and love found her birth family, and one of her nieces looks just like she did as a teenager. The resemblance is so close that it's spooky. There is part of me that wonders if I do have a doppelganger out there. It's kind of a fun idea. If he or she is out there, I know one thing, that person is cute.
