You Asked for It....

Monday, May 22, 2006

A few people have asked my why I don't have any pics of myself on my blog. There are several reasons- 1. I rather enjoy my anonymity and 2. I don't like any pictures of myself that have been take in the past 3 years. I gained weight when I moved to this area, which now I am trying like hell to get rid of. I've already lost 15 pounds and have about 15 more to go before I look like I did in this picture. I have to say, though, that this picture of me was taken when I was probably the healthiest weight I've ever been. During high school I had a bit of a problem with food, and looking back at the pictures from that time, now I see how disgustingly thin I was. This is one of the few pictures of me that I actually like- I was a normal weight, had a great tan, and, although my hair looks dark in the pic, it was it's natural medium blonde and healthy. So here you go- a pic of me- looking (in my humble opinion) my best- and the way I will look again soon. I'm the second from the left- light blue shirt.

It's amazing how difficult it can be to find a great group of friends after college. I haven't talked to "my girls" in a couple of years, but this was a few years ago at a "reunion." Yes, the girl in the middle is incredibly tan, and yes- she is supposedly a white girl. I have never seen anyone as tan as her, and we all constantly lectured her about the dangers of spending 2 hours a day in a tanning bed.

So anyways, you asked for and you got it. Now stop asking!

I think you look great in that picture, and good luck with the weight loss.

I kinda like my anonymity as well

Umm, the second from the left has a white shirt. The one on the far right has a blue shirt...which one is it? haha

g-bread- thanks. I'm trying.

lebatron- no, I'm wearing a pale blue shirt- the girls on either side are wearing white.

You look good in that picture, and I'm sure you look good now. You will succeed with your weight loss, you have the power.

I think you look great as well...I tend to post a lot of pics only bc I did manage to keep in touch with an amazing group of girls after college and A LOT OF them --i heart email/text/phone(from college and high school) and we are all addicted to posing for the camera...vain..maybe? But super fun to pretend to be a celeb for five seconds. :-)

What MGC said

alien- thanks...you should be a motivational speaker :-)

kassy- it's not vain of you at all- you can pull it off. I wish I was a little more vain instead of painfully shy.

mgc & david- thanks guys. Now I know why I love older men ;-)

Ash-You are a really pretty girl...I'll help you get over the shyness. There is SUCH a diva in there dying to come out and pose.

mmm... do I detect a shade of red in your hair in that photo?

welcome to the real photo club, kiddo.

Ashburnite 5/23/2006 12:02:00 PM  

Kassy- thanks, but I don't think there's an ounce of diva in me. Maybe a little when I drink, but that's about it. I'll definitely have to come out drinking with you guys sometime.

mjb- yes, there was a reddish hue there- you likey?

minijonb 5/23/2006 12:18:00 PM

Ashburnite 5/23/2006 12:51:00 PM  

mjb- I don't think any of my viewers are going to be offended, so go ahead and be vulgar- you know that's what gets MY motor running.
