Hey Everyone, and greetings from beaaautiful San Diego, California.
I haven't posted in way too long and I don't even know where to start. First off I'm doing well, according to the scale at the house I'm staying at I'm a 229 which would mean I maintained over the wedding weekend and my first few days out here, which I am completely happy with.
I've gotten some great feedback from everyone lately, which feels SO good. Both from people who know about the band and know I'm trying to people who I would never have thought would consider my weight. One such instance was at my cousin's wedding. One of my friends in VT who I hung out with a lot when I lived there, Danger Dave (don't ask) came to my cousin's wedding as he worked on a bunch of landscaping for the house and they were all invited. We spent the night dancing and drinking and having so much fun. At one point we were sitting on a bench and he was like Ange you look so good. And I thanked him, made a comment about getting my hair and makeup done. And he said no, it's more than that... Is it ok for me to say you've lost a lot of weight? I noticed when we were slow dancing. And although it was kind of awkward, it was also totally sweet.
I have been feeling all sorts of good feelings about this band of mine... Almost good enough to write poetry, but I could never do as well as Amy. I have stolen a bunch of pictures from the night before the wedding (green and white dress) .
the wedding -this is me and my friend/date Mark. Just a friend. I don't look particularily thin in the pic, but you can tell how much fun we're having!
and also took one of me in my new dress I bought here at Target yesterday that I'm totes in love with.
