Default Bless the oblivious friend.

I must confess, Three Chicks, I've faltered. These past few days I've binged on junk, and for it I show a backwards slide in weight. My confidence dropped to the lowest it's been since I started back in March. My courage nearly gave out, I nearly considered just going for broke and getting that burger, that pizza, that ice cream.

But my dear, dear friend saved me.

One of my biggest goals for this weightloss plan is to be thin enough to wear costumes to conventions again. I'd told my friend earlier this month that, no matter what, I would wear that target outfit again, come the convention this fall. He got more excited for me than I was. Since then, he's been talking about it nonstop with boundless enthusiasm. He's carving me a wooden prop, he's hunting for a seamstress, he wants to take me shopping for chaps.

Yesterday was the lowest point in my binge madness, and I was near breaking off the diet completely. But he, unaware of this, called up and chattered into my ear about all his big plans for my costume. And suddenly, I realized how much it meant to HIM that it meant so much to ME. I started crying as I listened. And now I'm back, with as much determination as ever. I am GOING to lose weight before the convention, darn it! I want those chaps!

I wish everyone had a friend so wonderful. 'Course, I'm never telling him that.

It sounds like you have a really amazing friend, even if he doesn't realize how much he helped you. Too often we hear about friends, family, acquaintances trying to derail our progress, even if they don't realize they are, so it's great to hear about the amazingly supportive friends out there.

I'm glad you had your wakeup call and your friend was there to provide it. You've come too far to turn back now.

I'm intrigued....what kind of convention would have you wearing chaps and carrying a wooden prop? The mind boggles.....

Anyway....so glad you have a friend like him!

Glad someone else asked about the costume. That's what I wondered!

It's nice when someone/something happens to snap you back to being on plan!! The burger/pizza/ice cream would have made you feel worse. Good for you for resisting!!

Now that you have opened the door, you know you will have to post pictures in the costume (with prop) after the convention. Now all of us are curious, so you'll have to fit into it.

Thanks everyone for being so encouraging! I left out the details of the costume since I thought it'd be boring for non-geeks. But for those who are interested, this is Irvine:

My friend is making me the shotgun out of wood and pvc. And this is me as Irvine, once upon over half a decade and 80 lbs ago. As you can see, I lack chaps to make the outfit "complete".
