Rachel never feel like you are fishing for a compliment.  The people here are the best because they care.  We are all victims and the hugs and support help us get through those really dark moments. 

You deserve the pat on the back!  Progress is so important and sometimes we are our own worst enemy.  We attack ourselves all the time.  We need others to defend us.

Congratulations on the weight loss.  That is tremendous!!!!


Hugs,

Emma

Sorry for poking my nose in here, but... Rachel, I'd like to point you to one of my icons in life.

Her name is Floor Jansen. She's the lead vocalist for the Symphonic Metal band Nightwish. She's 6'1" tall. And she owns it like no one I've ever seen. She has the nickname "The Valkyrie". And, well, she kinda looks like you (from your avatar picture, anyway).



Massive congratulations on losing weight, sweetie. That is no mean feat, and something you should be very proud of.

Hello Rachel,

Congratulations on the weight loss, no small feat.

I am 6'1" too. I learned that clothing can help with proportion.

I wish I was out enough to have a female help me pick our clothes that flatter me.

Thanks.  My first impression was, I don’t see the resemblance.  Then, I started breaking the comparison down element by element. 

Hair, no.

Eyes—-yes actually.
Nose—sort of, yes.
Mouth—maybe not quite.  My mouth is smaller, whether it looks that way in the avatar or not.  And, I am clearly heavier, and my face is fuller in the chin area.  But, I can see the resemblance you were noticing. 

Cool.

Thanks for introducing me to Floor Jansen and Nightwish, Sephirah. I listened to some of their music on Youtube and liked it. She's an amazing singer -- 3 octaves!

I finally found a scene where she stood with the whole band for bows, and she's the tallest by a couple of inches. And like you said, she owns it. Inspirational!
