3 Weeks to NOLA CC!!!!!!!!!!

Ok Geek post incoming!

3 weeks from today I'll be hopefully getting a glimpse of Doctor Who!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   And many others but Matt. Freaking. Smith!

And WASH!!  Ahhhhh Alan Tudyk from Firefly/Serenity!!

And Wesley Crusher!  A/K/A Wil Wheaton!!

And Daryl Dixon!!!!! (Norman Reedus)!

Be still my nerdy little heart!

I am so excited but best of all....

and I may not be where I had hoped to be by now, but I'm much better than were I was a few years ago.

(That may be the last full body shot I've taken since October - trust me not much has changed since the pic on the right).

This year, I promise to not hide behind the camera so much.  I WILL get in more pics and I will have a lot more fun this time around.

Last year's con (technically the year before was the last one we had down here but it was moved up due to Superbowl & Mardi Gras) was the beginning of my journey.    It's still hard to wrap my head around that I was THAT big.  I wish I would have been brave enough to step on the scale to see how high I had actually gotten.  Anyway, but the first and highest I officially weighed in at was 244.4.  So in looking at the timeline of my weigh in's, I was probably down about 12 pounds at this point.

In case you are interested, here's some pics of each con from my Facebook page.  Hopefully the albums should work even if you don't have fb.
