Jul. 21st, 2005

at the end of april, i decided for many reasons (feeling so unhealthy and miserable, diabetes running rampant in my family, other things...) to stop eating sugar and breads. i started out at 227 lbs, which sadly was still not the heaviest i had been after moving here and all the depression i went through even the year before moving here. in weighing myself two halloweens ago, i had weighed in at 240, and i'm pretty sure that i had been a bit heavier than that before i started working again.

it's been almost three months, and i am now down 26 lbs and many many inches (amazing what power walking and moving furniture all day will do to a body.) i don't have before pictures as of yet, though i am getting them developed as we speak. i think my going away party from phoenix is on one of those rolls of films, and definitely my halloween pics of me dressed as Gaz, so i'm very interested to see if i'm the same size now or thinner than i was when i had left phoenix.

but in the meantime...

i had to lighten the picture up because i couldn't use the flash with the mirror, so sorry for the graininess. you can also see the AWKWARD length that my curse-ed hair is now. bleck.

side view! at least i still have my knockers!

flash, ahoy!

silly pic i took of me laying in my bed.


got angry at the one hour photo guy in target, so much so that i almost went to file a complaint, something that i NEVER do when it comes to retail because i've lived the retail life for so long, so i understand how it is at times. i go up to the one hour photo booth and plunk down my disposable cameras. because i used to do this all the time, i understand that one hour doesnt necessarily mean ONE HOUR, that sometimes it takes even two or three, depending upon how busy they are. i ask when i could pick them up, as we'll be in the area for a long time, and he replies snottily that he's got WAY more than enough to last him until closing. if i left my photos with him, the EAAAARLIEST that they MIIIIGHT be done is by 3 pm the next day. ooookay, fine. i understand, i suppose. he asks if i would like to send them for off location fulfillment. i ask what the difference in cost is, that i want singles. he says that on site is $7.95 a roll, and that if i send them out, it would take a week, and they could only do it if i agreed to 3x5 pictures and investment in them all on a disc for my computer. i told him it was a no brainer, i don't want my pictures that small, and i don't need a disc, and i would much rather have them sooner than later, so.... but he kept trying to push me into sending them out. fuck that, do my freaking pictures and LIKE IT! i'll be back tomorrow. jerk. at least it's not food, so i don't have to worry about him jacking off in my frosting or anything.

so, short story long, i may have more pics that i can scan into the computer for you on my day off tomorrow. IIIII am excited.

Why did Constantanople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks...

Gorgeous as always
You look amazing Aubs! I love the close ups of your face, you look like such a beautiful 1920s silent movie actress with your big expressive eyes, and delicate, pretty features :-)

Cool, eating right and being a little healthy is cool!

We can't wait until Sue is allowed to GAIN a little weight again, she's so skinny right now...

though i only weigh about 4 lbs heavier now than i did in that picture, i feel so much larger than that - it seems that when i stopped eating so much freaking protein, that things turn to fat so much more easily.

i've been behind on things, how IS sue these days? i think about yous a lot. well, not an overobsessive amount, i don't want you think i'm stalking you or anything ;)

If I were still on the path to become a great research scientists I swear I'd do my best to invent something to make women see the beauity in themselves. Because I know its there because I can see it (that which can be seen) and alot of women don't. Some of them might even get bad at you if you tell them so. Like this:

Aubbs. you are beautiful, no more on the high side of gorgeous! I don't see you as fat at all, don't let the stick figure adverts fool you, all your peices seem to fit, and fit very well I might add.

See something like that there are actually woment in the world that would get mad because of that but it would be true! *sigh*

Great pictures, oh and the example, its so totally true, I really mean it :)

Re: IstanbooooooooooooollllL!!!!!
thank you so much again, hun. i've done a lot of inner transformation as well as outter over the last year. i currently weigh about 5 lbs heavier than i did in the picture, but thanks to some soul searching (and my dearest belenen) i've viewed beauty in many shapes and sizes. i never wanted to become skinny for a MAN (well, maybe in my early 20's i did), but had always dropped weight or fought with weight for all the wrong reasons. i almost never cared about being single, but i felt pressure from society.

i guess that also moving to an area of the country that generally views you as YOU and not your size/income/etc. really helped. now i want to drop weight, but not because of HEALTH reasons. diabetes runs rampant in my family, and i see mom already suffering from it. i want to have a healthy colon as my grandmother died from colon cancer and they suspect mom has it. i want to watch my blood pressure, etc.

maybe also the fact that i'm aging has something to do with it, too. as i see parts of my body already failing (i.e. my knee and back), i want to do what i can to keep the rest of me healthy for as long as possible.

not that it has been doing a good job of swaying me from things i should have been eating, but at least the desire is there, so maybe soon... ;)
