It's good to have motivation, OP! But oh god, I'd be in so much trouble if I had to survive in a fantasy land...

My biggest problem would be nearsightedness. Can I get the right contact solution in fantasy land? What if I break my glasses or need a different perscription? Even if I could afford laser eye surgery, it wouldn't be worth it at this point since I probably have less than a decade to go before I'll need reading glasses anyway.

I have the same problem, but I figure that if I prove myself to be a capable warrior, the fantasy land creatures will be impressed and maybe decide to make me a magical equivalent of glasses, or teach me some alternate way of perception that will make eye-sight unimportant, or teach me to transform into animals, or something else like that.

I recently lost a lot of weight and when people ask about it I say stuff like, "I wanted to be more active" and "More Health conscious, etc".

But really, it was because I wanted an easier time finding clothes for cosplays.

I have bucket list for when I reach my goal weight and one of the things is that I want to try cosplay. I respect bigger cosplayers but I don't want to be one of them.

Secrets like this make me wish for a community that was all about training for the battlesof your fictional world of choice. Like, there could be crossover training sessions for general cardio or strength training and then if, say you were a Star Wars fan, breakout sessions for yoga, meditation and kendo. Other activities could fit other fandoms.

But I just see no way to make that a reality.

I would join you, anon. technically, it's possible to do it online, i.e. like a support system/ blog update type thing, but it might be hard to find people to do that with.

There is a sword fencing group near me that does lightsaber battles. Some of the fighters dress in Jedi cosplay (most are members of the 501st or Rebel Legions).

There is a martial arts studio that comes out to the local Comic-Con style conventions and does the different types of martial arts in costumes. Last time I went, a girl dressed as Katara did Tai Chi. It was cool. She had a piece of shimmery blue fabric tied to her hands with fishing line, from the back of the room it looked like she was bending water.

That sounds awesome!

The martial arts group did a live-action version of Mortal Kombat.
I heard they also had Zuko and Zhao cosplayers do the Agni Kai battle from the show, but I missed it.

Whatever helps keep you motivated, OP :). Glad it's working for you.

I think this is an awesome reason to get fit. Especially if it's *working*. :)

(Anonymous) 2017-09-12 05:52 am (UTC)(link)
I like this as a reason to get fit, OP! The way I see it, there are two basic schools of motivation when it comes to getting fit. One is "For my health/quality of life" and the other is everything else. And in my experience, even though the former would logically seem to be the best motivation, it's usually something from the "other" category that motivates us best. And your particular form of motivation from the "other" category happens to be fun and imaginative, sooo that's cool. :)

This thread is a gross mess. Ugh.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-12 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
So someone bettering themselves is a bad thing? Okay then.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-12 10:39 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, AYRT's comment is genuinely confusing. Nothing about this thread strikes me as even a little bit messy, so I have literally no idea whether anon thinks people shouldn't be cool with the secret, or if anon is some kind of insanely sensitive HAES type who can't see people talking about diet and exercise in any capacity at all without feeling it's fat shaming. Or maybe they're taking some other form of equally inexplicable offence, who knows! Lol.

Might be a misfire.

(Anonymous) 2017-09-12 10:41 am (UTC)(link)
Just be careful, OP. Eating less and exercising more is a good way to sabotage yourself because your body needs fuel to gain muscle.

Just make it good fuel like a burger, not a candy bar
