Throughout 2011 & into 2012 I got serious about my weight and lost over 100 lbs! My lowest weight was 199.6 lbs achieved on 2/28/12. Soon after I let depression get the best of me and over the course of 5 years I let myself gain back all the weight I had lost plus an extra 30 lbs putting me at the highest weight of my life. I weighed 344 lbs at my highest. I rebooted my weight loss goals in January of 2017 & I am working hard to try to get back to where I once was.

    My main was a healing-spec high priestess, but I kept an assassin cross alt to wreck people who pk'd my priest when I'd solo level. Gotta love revenge kills on pvp servers. XD

    I miss playing sometimes...but then I think about how obsessed I was and stay away lol

    I've actually never been to DragonCon because this is the first time I could afford it... and I am so, so, SO excited to be able to go! I'm probably not going to be thin enough to dress up all crazy-like, either... but I'm definitely going to try to next time (I'm thinking Vala from SG:1 or Six from Battlestar Gallactica, possibly).

    Do you know where you're staying? We're staying at either the Hyatt or the Hilton... I'm not entirely sure.

    On a side note... I can definitely relate to the blurb on your profile, especially the part missing out on so much in life because we've never been thin. That definitely struck a chord with me, as did the part about amusement parks and clothes.

    Anyway, so I'm going to end this dreadfully long comment now. Talk to you later! :)

    Nah dude I don't mind at all. In fact I think I'm going to add you as well! Dun dun dunnn...
    We do have a lot in common. Except I never got addicted to WoW. I played it for like a month, and got bored. I was addicted to Ragnarok Online for the better part of a year though. Damn you cutesy avatars...
    So we're on different teams in the BLC6. Consorting with the enemy...tsk tsk. XD
