Shedding The Pounds

Well I know I haven't written in awhile. This is because A) I haven't had much to say and B) When I was updating the news post on a regular basis, I ended up getting flamed. So I took a little breather. I'm back again. I can't guarantee how often I will be able to post, or what I will be posting about, but I will post more often.
I know I said that we would be attending Fanime and Anime Expo this year, but it looks like we won't be. There was a mix up inside both of the conventions and they didn't have us set to be guests. I'm not too upset about not going though. Just Comic Con is enough of a convention for me. This year we will have a larger presence. We will have a corner booth that we are sharing with Starline Multimedia. We will have t-shirts to sell and we are hoping to have a VERY special item to sell. We can't tell you what that item is yet. (Mostly because we don't want to jinx it.) It should be fun, and I hope to see as many of you as possible! ^^
About 3 weeks ago I decided that I was tired of being overweight and out of shape. So my co-workers and I decided to start Weight Watchers. Since then, I have lost 13lbs. Right now I weigh 168lbs but I would like to get back down to 120lbs. (That’s how much I weighed when I met Greg 2 years ago. Damn you boys and making us happy girls fat and stuff!!!) Therefore, my target is to lose 40lbs by Comic Con. Comic Con is July 21st. On this diet, you are supposed to lose 2-3lbs a week. I realize that I only have 8 weeks till Comic Con, so this might be shooting for the moon, but who cares right?
On top of the diet, I have started working out at the gym next to my office. On Mondays, they have Yoga and on Wednesdays/Fridays, they have an aerobics/cardio class that is supposed to get you in shape and toned. I'm hoping that the extra exercise might help push the pounds off a little faster. After doing all of this for a couple of weeks, I have SOOO much energy. I don't feel sick or lethargic like I used to. Its grrrrreat! I dance around the house, and I have a smile on my face.
What does this have to do with you guys? I'm not really sure. I thought I would document my weight, and what I did that week. Perhaps it will be helpful for any of you that want to lose weight. In addition, it will make sure that I stay on track. If you hate this, then I guess don't read it. Its Greg's website and he has given me permission to talk about whatever I feel like. This is what I feel like talking about dammit! >.<
WEEK 3: 168 lbs
Eating 20-25 WeightWatchers POINTS per day.
Started work out regimen. (Man, I am SORE. ^.^)
48 lbs to go.
8 weeks till Comic Con.
P.S. I'm not expecting to have all the weight gone by that time, but I am setting my goals high, then I'll start a new goal after this one. So don't worry about me getting sick. If I start losing like crazy, I'll go see a doctor. I promise!!
