Well, first of all I'd like to thank you guys for all your sweet comments about my poop situation. Nice to know I'm not alone in five pound weight gains over two days time, and all that good stuff. Things are going fine. I'm back down to about 182.5 or so now, so we'll see how things are later this week. I need to get to jump roping so I can feel active. I'm doing so much computer/editing/album design work that I feel really, really stagnant.
And now for some videos. The camera adds 10 pounds, or so they say... For the first video I'm about to show you guys, I wanted to believe the camera added 50 pounds.
I've had a few moments of pseudo 5-minutes-of-fame type of things. I got to do a promo video for my favorite news station in Denver, Channel 7. I sent their weather man, Mike Nelson, a letter about how he was awesome and I remembered him doing a presentation on weather balloons for my 2nd grade class. The news team contacted me and asked if I would do a little interview spot. So, I did it. Here's one of the clips... I was probably at my high, or close to my high weight of 225 here:
I also was on Gimme the Mike in Denver. I wanted to show you how much freakin' thinner I was! It's amazing ... watching yourself back on video is so strange. And it really put me face to face with my weight gain. The HI-LARIOUS thing about this is right at the beginning of the clip I'm showing you guys, I say, "hopefully I haven't gained too much weight since high school," and it was after they asked if people from my home town would recognize me. The funny thing is that I knew I was thinner than my Senior year. Gah for trying to be funny, 'cause now that just pisses me off... Anyhoodle! Here is my favorite out-take clip from the raw promo footage, and the little bio they had me do. This was five years ago.
Hopefully I'll get pseudo-five-minutes-of-fame-or-more soon and will have another video to show you when I lose my last 40 pounds. :)
And now that I think about it, I'm sure I'll get comments like, "You sing?" Well, sort of. I sing in the car now. I used to sing in high school, it's all I did. These days I don't really sing at all except by myself, although I LURVE some karaoke. I'll show you a shnippet of one of the performances so you all can see. And mainly, it's to show you this freakin' dress I could fit into... I think it was a generic size medium from some random mall store. I was probably around 155-ish at this point. If that's the case, I'd like to be 10-15 pounds lighter than I am in this video as my ultimate goal weight, for a visual. And check it out, people: No bra. I was so much smaller then, holy crap. Tiny boobies.
Oh, and sorry the clip is so oddly edited. Windows Movie Maker sucks my balls. I'm getting new software, 'cause this is the only splicing of the clip it'd let me do. SuckMcSuckerson.
Adios for now!
