    Here is the ad I answered:

    "Auditioning Male & Female Front Lead Vocalists.
    We are a large 10 piece wedding/corporate band with a full horn section serving the Hudson Valley for over 20 years. We are interested in auditioning both male and female front lead vocalists for sub work and possibly more if needed. We are looking for high energy seasoned professionals who can command an audience, sing on key, and harmonize well with others. Your personal repertoire should include all standard wedding/corporate style party music which is basically most top 40 hits from the 1940's to the current dance hits. Bilingual vocalists (Spanish) with some rapping ability (Pit Bull, Etc.) is definately a plus! Please, no egos or attitudes welcomed here. Only committed team players who will make all gigs and rehearsals. Thanks.

    Here is my response:

    Good Afternoon,

    I am taking a chance and responding to your ad even though I don't precisely fit your criteria. I am an actress /singer who does musical theater around the Kingston area. I know many songs from different eras, though my repertoire may not include all of the songs your band plays. My stage experience, however, makes me a fast learner. I am also a Spanish teacher at a local HS, therefore am able to sing in both languages. I'm not sure that I would make a very good Pit Bull, but I know a lot of songs by Shakira and J-Lo. I would love to do some Celia Cruz. My only previous band experience was as a lead vocalist in the all teacher band for Battle of the Bands last year at my HS. I sang, lead and harmony during our set while playing several different small percussion instruments. Sadly, we "broke up" after that one performance. My experience with that group is what has inspired me to seek a place as a singer with a "real" band. I am certainly able to command an audience both onstage and in the classroom. So, if you do not find the seasoned, professional, female lead singer that you are looking for, maybe you could take a chance on me.

    I do have one important question for you. In which HV town does the band rehearse? Please feel free to contact me with any questions that I did not answer in this email.

    Thanks,
    Paula

    I tried to be funny and let my personality out in the email. It probably won't come to anything, but at least I took action.
    PS, I think they are asking a lot looking for a person who knows all the wedding and party standards from the 1940's to present. Lol
    PPS, I deliberately left out any physical description. I figured if they are interested, they might ask or just arrange to meet me.

    Ok, I'm really starting clean Primal today. The only safe thing at the BBQ was salad, so I gave up.

    glad you let yourself off the hook yesterday, hopefully without any guilt, and are starting clean today. Did you track when you first started? Maybe you just need to go back to the very beginning when it was working for you? I can't remember what changed, I didn't latch onto the Pebbles train until you were trying to figure things out, but I seem to remember that straight Primal worked for you in the beginning?

    Just a little note...at the beginning of your journal, January 2011, you weighed just over 250. So in 2 years you have lost 40 pounds, right?

    At the beginning of my journal, August 2011, I weighed 267. So in 2 years I have lost 6 pounds.

    Your plan seems to be working better than mine.

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I weighed 275 when I started on 9/24/10. The journal started in January. So 50 lbs in 3 years, but it was as much as 65. I hit 210 on 9/24/11.

    Yes straight primal by the book worked for me. That is what I am trying now, but the binging was much better controlled. Since then, I got deeper into perimenopause, lost my Mom and likely screwed myself with too many experiments.

    What I probably need is clean Paleo with Primal Blueprint ratios.
