My weight loss has honestly stalled. The return of depression, mixed with bad eating habits.. well, ive put some weight back on. not all of it, certainly.. but some. I have been working so much I also haven't been able to keep a steady gym routine. I am going to be trying to remedy this, but it's hard. The lethargy is strong, and I believe that my sleep apnea has gotten worse, and it leaves me very tired all the time. I am trying to figure out how to fix this without totally breaking the bank getting a CPAP machine (and yes, with my insurance, it's a very large expense.)
On the positive side of things, I have made progress with some other parts of my quest.
I have spent a good deal of time recently working with the amazing people of the 70th Garrison of the 501st Legion, and the Dantooine Base Sector of the Rebel Legion. My costume is complete, and we have been out spreading cheer and love of Star Wars, and bringing smiles to many around us. Here are just a few photos from some recent troops I have participated in.
First, Nogi Limor.
A HUGE thank you to Kevin and Kyle for helping me put all this together, and getting these great photos which I used for submission (and got approval from) the Rebel Legion!
Next up, some shots I took for others while I was waiting for my costume to be done. Learning to be a Handler is a Great thing to do if you want to be involved with the 501st or RL and can't get a costume together just yet!
Bunch of amazing, super charitable goofballs, All of these fine costumed folks!
Finally, from this last weekend, some shots from Star Wars Days at the Kansas City Zoo!
I love all of this, being involved, making people smile. But the quest has a ways to go. I HAVE to lose that weight, and seeing myself in these photos just proves it more. It's ok though. Because I have an amazing community behind me, and I WILL get there.
May the Force Be With You
