Meiko from Vocaloid. I'm not trying to lose too much weight because I'm pretty slim already, but I really want to get that flat/toned stomach.

Sankyuu!! I've increased the amount of exercises for my stomach (leg lifts, more reps, push ups, burpees ect) and yeah I'm super sore the next day. Just gotta keep it up!

Laura rolla and yes I'm crossplaying. Well he's a dude that is dressing up as a girl. So I'm dressing up as a dude as a....yeah.

Why? Because I love the challenge! All my life I've worked to bulk up and it is interesting to try to do the exact opposite while still staying in shape. Everyone I know thinks I'm crazy and I'm not telling them why. Also, since I will be slimming down heavily, in the future it will make me more toned when I re-bulk.

How So I have the challenge of losing bulk and mass while staying fit so I am heavily focusing on cardio while trimming my diet. I'm cutting almost all the carbs out of my life except for my lunch sandwhich and my morning toast, which will be whole wheat. I'm also cutting out sodas and fruit juice. Switching to water and whole fruits. Dinner is veggies and meat. Breakfast is carefully proportioned eggs, whole wheat toast, and turkey bacon. Popcorn, canned peaches and cottage cheese for snacks, which I keep to a minimum. Sometimes I swap out seafood for dinner, for anything. Also on occasion, I go on veggie binges where I'll eat a whole head of cabbage or a massive amount of peas and carrots. I have a natural tendency to binge and veggies pretty much can't make you fat. I'm trying to moniter everything and keep my diet at 500 calories below its previous level. Also I reward myself with some ice cream or yogurt if I can follow it for two weeks.

As for excercise, I'm limiting my resistance training to calinisthenics only. So pushups mostly. Also I suffered a shoulder dislocation so I lift milk cartons to strengthen my rotator cuffs. For cardio pretty much DANCE! I'm trying to dance at least 10 hours a week. Helps because I'm actually hoping to audition for various things and join a group once my shoulder is better. In addition to dance, also go on walking adventures when I can find the time. There is a mountain where I live that has some nice sunsets to watch. Eventually I would like to climb it 3-4 times a week if I ever work up the will/stamina. Also would like to take a yoga or pillates class.

This is my current project. Since I am 6'0", and 180 lbs. I need to lose some weight, and lose some inches around the mid-section. So I have increased my cardio using an elliptical, and I increased my pushups, and added small weights to my sit ups/crunches.

Aqua from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.

I'm not trying to lose so much weight, about 6-8 kg perhaps, and I want to get my arms in better shape. And since Aqua is wearing those mini-shorts, I definitely have to work on my legs, too! :'D
Well, I have plenty of time, I'm going to debute this costume in 2013 (probably summer).

I'm gonna cosplay Miku Hatsune! she's so cute, and I feel like I personally couldn't do the character justice if I was as overweight as I am now.

I cut out ALL fast food, sweets, and soda. I am cutting back on Pasta, bread, and potatoes. I am walking 1 mile a day, doing 45 reps with weights for my arms, and 20 squats a day!
It's not much, but it's a start and since June 1st, I've lost 13 lb!

Abs are hard if your not genetically dispositioned for them. I know some people that are extremely dedicated that never show. Admitedly, I came close once, but I backed out.

I'm going to cosplay Mami Tomoe, and I'm continuing to lose weight as a result of my new diet. I'd like to shrink my waist a little more- it's a good thing the bust isn't going down with my hips and waist since she's got a pretty large bust :P

Aang from Airbender. An adult, darker, more barbaric version of Aang when he goes into berserk mode.
