Hi everyone,

I'm a nineteen year old otaku in search of a healthy solution to slimming down. I can't get myself to stay on a diet and exercise daily. I'm 5'8" and 182 pounds. I want to get down to 132, cause I know I can do it, but I just need some help on getting there. That's 50lbs or so...wow...

I'm attending a con in April 2011, it's Anime Boston and I'm super pumped for it! 3rd year going, this past year I was Sora from Digimon, but I thought I didn't look as good, because of the weight issue. Next year, I am going to go as her again, Terriermon and Minun Gijinka (This one especially)

Please, any advice at all is welcome! I need it badly.

Thank you,
Anju

the first thing i would suggest is reading all the stickies, nutrition posts, and exercise topics we have posted here. The main losing weight and cosplay thread is more generalized discussion and progress reporting so you dont have to necessarily read that. From there if you have a question regarding the subject of the topic, ask it there and we can answers your particular query. Any additional questions outside of those topics you can report back here or the main losing weight and cosplay topic. Please don't think im trying to be mean or anything, we just get posts like these a lot, and while we have no problem helping people, a lot of the queries just become redundant. We love to help people, and so far we have helped a lot of people who had the same questions and have already taken the effort to give the same answers. no hard feelings ok?

Also take a look at my journal for some extra diet stuff if you still have questions after the nutrition thread.
