Dragon*Con 2013 September 4, 2013
For the people who have never heard of Dragon*Con, it is a sci-fi convention that takes place in Atlanta Ga. every Labor Day weekend. It is four days of nerds gone wild basically. Anyway, my husband is the biggest geek and he calls me a wanta-be geek. Truth is, I like going. The people are nuts and it is our own little vacation from the kids for four days out of the year. So every year I tell myself that I am going to make great costumes and get dressed up, but I don’t. I am under motivated because I am fat. Now there are lots of big girls that dress up and they even look good, but I personally am too self conscious to go to all that trouble to and go around half dressed in sexy costumes.
This year, I didn’t have much fun at all and that is not like me. I decided that next year I will be 100 pounds lighter. I have planned all these goals and never kept them but I have an end date and a time frame to work in. That is a little over 8 pounds a month. My wonderful husband gave me the before picture when he took a picture of me watching the crowd leave the parade this year. My beginning weight is 261.2 as of yesterday.
