They said stuff like "Oda doesn't care if you're tired, and neither do I" and "Attain the One Piece." Cheesy, obnoxious, and just enough to remind me that there is no way in heck I can have a successful One Piece cosplay if I don't make my goal weight.

After a few weeks, I didn't need the notes anymore. I get such a buzz post workout that I look forward to it when I wake up. (Though I do still hit the snooze quite a few times) And when it's time for my second workout of the day, I don't have to drag myself to the treadmill.

So, I guess what it comes down to is visualizing your goal. I looked in the mirror today, and surprise of surprises, I saw that I really do have abs. It'll take a lot of work for me to define them (ie: make the fat go away), but by golly-they're there.
Thank you. I'll try that. It's a great idea. I also gotta make plans for next semester going to the gym on campus, free for students. I'm planning on swimming every day if I get the chance.
