WolfCC: Can't really help, but I'd definitely subscribe.

Went through this thread again. Definitely very inspiring. Keep up the good work!

Got fed up with my relatively poor health (among some other reasons) and the extra weight, so I did some cardio last night. Once you get over the heart throbbing to heart pounding boundary, it's really not that bad. Doesn't take much time, so on the days I'm short on time, I can still do cardio. On the days I have more time, I figure I'll work on some other type of exercise.

200lbs in my Cosplay pics, currently 190lbs, goal is 160lbs by June. Results vary from person to person, but the possibility is there so I might as well give it a shot.

Once i started college i hit my worst weight ever...so once senior year came around i went to the gym 5 times a week and started eating better. it took awhile for me to find a balance of eating i like and working out so it became more of a life style. But im happy where i am now and i plan to keep it up.

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE~!

College has been stressful and I gained ten pounds. Ive been lazy but I finally cut down snacks and stick to three meals a day. I workout when I have time. If Im with friends I find ways for us to remain active. Ive lost three pounds. Im going to go back to going on the treadmill a lot, doing sit ups, push ups, and my excercise tapes.

Wow, some of those success stories are really amazing. Especially seeing the before/after pictures. It often feels like seeing those weight loss ads where the 2 people are entirely different folks (No, that's not a bad thing :P)

I've started training lately to at least put a little bulk (As opposed to most men, I don't want lots of muscles, just a bit of tone since I'm scrawny :/)

@dustbunny : There's no question you succeeded, how long did it take you to go from A to B? (If you don't mind answering, of course)

You wanted results and you got them pretty quick --- you likely worked hard for them.

This thread encourages me to actually retry the gym thing, although I don't know if I can still get a discount via my job.

Seeing that folks have got results (Though in my case it's not exactly weight loss I aim at), it gives me reason to believe working out actually gives something in the end.

Thanks to all for the success stories

The difference a year makes...

Figured I'd post this in the proper section. Here's an update from the photos that were posted on the first page of this thread!

I decided to start cosplaying back in November of 2009, with my first costume being Abbey Chase from J. Scott Campbell's "Danger Girl" series.

I weighed around one hundred thirty-five pounds at the time, and I wanted to begin an exercise routine to build a little muscle and lose a few inches in order to do Abbey justice (since spandex pants and a crop top aren't particularly forgiving). When a Planet Fitness opened nearby on December 28th of that year, I made a commitment to start working out roughly once every three days, or ten times per month.

It's now December of 2010. In less than a year, I've lost -- and kept off -- just under twenty-five pounds as well as shed inches all over. Last month, I went back to the same resort where I shot my first Abbey Chase photos (in version one of the costume; I'm now on version three) to take some new pictures for comparison's sake.

See for yourself the difference a year makes!



November 2009 (yuck!)



November 2010


Who knew it would be cosplaying that would finally motivate me to watch what I eat and exercise on a regular basis? =) I'm closing in on the one-year mark, and I've yet to skip a workout. I hope to keep it up in 2011!

Haha It was a desire to no longer be fat...and honestly wanted to do better at cosplay. I wanted to do better avatar cosplays and that was the thing that got me going.

@dustbunny Thats awsome! quite the inspiration I must say. I used to run track & field but after HS I jumped the weight wagon that college provides and gained 40 pounds of basicly pure fat... But now I slimed all that off and lost 30 pounds and gained some nice muscle.

I was pretty skinny to begin with but I looked very unhealthy after 3 years of fast food and no exercise... I'm quite happy with my results and plan to even go further with gaining some more muscle and looking more cut =). Again you are quite the inspiration that alot of people should follow!
