8/14…one week away.

One week away. I’m hoping I can get down to below 230 by next week. I am really liking this diet.  Ha–diet-I don’t think of it that way. It’s just “nope, can’t eat that right now.” Im definitely going to the normal diet after my appointment next week. That is more doable and allows for bits of fruit and whole grain. It’s where you control your eating to 15g of sugar and 6 servings of carbs a day. I have a feeling since I did so well on the fast track that I will keep it up on the regular diet and then as I get closer to my cruise go back on the fast track. Fyi here’s a little guide for measuring…always helpful for watching portion control. 


Another event that is one week away is Star Wars Celebration. This is the big convention for everything Star Wars and this year it is in Anaheim.  It is also big because the all new, never before seen stuff for the upcoming Episode VII will probably be revealed there.

As I prepare for this event, I have come to realize that if you are passionate about anything there are probably others out there just as passionate (or more) about it and that there are places and events where you can share that pssion.   That’s what I’ve determined cosplay is really all about. I am just starting to get into costumed events and dressing up for events such as Star Wars, comic con and wonder con. Hey, even the Renaissance faires I attend. People dress up and act a new part for a little while. It requires creativity and imagination!  And it’s nothing to make fun of or be afraid of.
