Cosplay is motivation for me more because I don't really like to take pictures of myself, except in cosplay. So I see progress, or lack thereof, in my cosplay pics. I look a lot better as Goku when I am smaller, even with the outfit I made for when I was bigger.
Of course, there is motivation in that I want to look as awesome as possible at cons and not be self-conscious.

Currently, cosplay is my main motivation, but my overall goal is just to get fit and strong again. I used to be a varsity athlete many moons ago, but have since stopped being very active. Add to that reaching my 30's and having 2 babies, and I am back to 0 in terms of fitness. I want to feel like I look good, and am strong. Looking good in my cosplays is like the carrot on the stick to actually get me out the door.

Cosplay is only part of my motivator. I've had a few health problems over the last couple of years, I'm slowly feeling better and able to go to the gym and do more than just walk. But I haven't let the fact that I'm overweight stop me from cosplaying.
If I was a cosplay, a perfect cosplay, how would you know it was really me?
