accomplishments and randomness, per usual

i don't really have much to say other than:

today is the very firstest day in... gosh.. 3 years? that i have weighed in at LESS than 200 lbs. woop HA! i've now hit my goal weight to where i can actually buy my shrinking frame some more clothes, but ironically, i won't have money to even THINK about it until... until... hrm. well, about a month or so from now. maybe by then i can say that i've gone down two pant sizes instead of just one. actually, i have no idea where i am at size wise. last time i even tried on anything, i think i was in limbo between a 16 and an 18. damn birthing thighs. yes, yes, i know the term is actually 'birthing hips', but i think the birthing area sunk a bit low on me, judging from where my, uh.. sturdiness is located. okay, so it's just a lame excuse.

but i'm REALLY excited. not that to look at me you would think i'm excited, i AM the very model of an apathetic individual, afterall.

operatic is in town from georgia! i hope to see him, to meet him finally. it was great meeting him on the phone anyway. i love hearing other people's awe as they discover the beauty that is portland for the first time, to hear the joy they get from what they are seeing/feeling that i feel practically all the time. being in portland is like being on proverbial ecstasy all the time for me. silly, i know, when a lot of you who have been here for practically your entire lives look around and say "erm... yeah? whuttaboutit?" i guess that you would need to spend time in cities that look WAY different, such as phoenix. phoenix is like an alien planet in comparison to portland.

but enough about how i'm still in love with the city. i'm certain that i bore you all to tears with my "but it's PUUUUURDY!" rambling.

i'm going to be poor.. VERY poor.. over the next month or so, but i'm still in a social mood. mayhaps after the wedding is over and i have the entire house TO MYSELF for a week *eep!*, that i can host some social events? like silly stuff like board gaming. sorry that i don't have any games that are really good for group playing for the ps2, but you're certainly welcome to bring them. i could provide the venue, if you wish to bring a six pack of beer or whatnot. or even just soda.

as andrea reads this an instantly starts having visions of hopping cahrazay parties while they're on their honeymoon, i'm sure. but i won't, i promise.

if you wish to do something low key and non money related next week, gimme a call.

Awesome!

Now if I can just get over the 275 hump and lose the last 25-30 pounds, I'll be all set.

ha ha, i had thought of animaniacs as i was typing "very model of an apathetic individual" and how i'm overdue for a silly singalong session of animaniacs.

i am the very model of a cartoon individual
my animation's comical, unusual, and whimsical
i'm quite adept at funny gags, comedic theory i have read
from wicked puns and stupid jokes to anvils that drop on your head.

Yay for losing weight. I want to weigh 200 pounds. I weigh 225 now (stupid meds). I've tried eating less but that doesn't work cause I get hungry. And I can't really exercise cause most of my body doesn't sweat and I overheat too fast and it gets dangerous. But good for you anyway.

YAY!
I guess that means it's my turn to lose weight? I can't even imagine what I'd look like at 200lbs. I haven't weighed under than in a long, long, long time. You'll have to gather up a list for me of the things you ate and didn't eat if you get time? That'd be great! Go Aubrey Go Aubrey it's yer birthday oh oh! *hugs* I <3 joo.

Re: YAY!
as cheesy as it sounds, i pretty much just ate what they said i could at atkins.com. after the first HELL two weeks, the cravings greatly go away. unfortunately, i haven't been able to keep it off because of living with two boys that love the junk and only the junk.

tell them they can love the junk, but you don't love the junk in the trunk so lose the junk, punk(s)

Less than 200lbs in 3 years? That's wonderful!

Boardgaming is fun, nice to see someone else still enjoys it. In the age of videogames and computer games, boardgames seem so archaic, and it's hard for me to find anyone willing to sit around and play one for a while.

no doubt. i'm sad that since i've been back in school, that i've been too entirely busy to even think about holding a board gaming night again! maybe while i'm off school for a couple of weeks....

Yeaaaaa!!!! *lights fireworks* Wooohoo!!!! Way to go!

You don't bore me at all wit your city talk, you've just gotta take pictures to back it up :) Yeah so I am just a picture nut :P

I've got no time to be thinner, I'm paying bills... yeah that doesn't make sense but its the truth in a round about way :P Maybe more on that later.

Congrats on the weight loss! I have an idea- go to a store, try on the clothes/sizes and then see if you can get them online cheaper. Like on ebay or something. If you buy just one small thing for yourself that makes you feel good, it's worth it on the crappy days. :) I'm jealous! I hoped I was going to hit under 200 by this month, but now since there's a baby in there I guess I'll have to wait until March or April.

I want to congratulate you for the weight-loss! what a great feeling it must be for you! (Well, it should be you know?)

*I wish I were closer and I could do something low key and non money related, (I am broke)! hehe!

But you are far!... (or it's me who's far!) :(

A lovely evening to you!

Congrats on the weight! I don't know for sure, but I think I must have dropped just below 200 for the first time in a decade right before I got pregnant. I was at 201 and then know I lost more weight and then it started coming back with the pregnancy and the next time they weighed me I was at 205.

I am so PROUD of you! Getting rid of depression weight is a VERY good thing! Yay Aubrey! (I have way too many A-name friends, Ashley, Allison, Aubrey, Anika, Andrea AAAAHHHHH it's confusing!)

OMG. I wish I was the friend come up from GA! Well one day I will be. *sniffs wistfully*

i was thinking the other day just how many WONDERFUL people i have in georgia!

i've gotten back up to between 211 and 216, depending upon the day, and i can so feel how much it drags my body down (especially when i'm carrying around my giant backpack for school!)
