Re: Biker Scout Build

There's this thing called "Dragoncon" that seems to have sucked all my dear hubby's time and effort. Armor pieces are all ready for fitting...now to just get me into the garage in my flight suit along with his expertise and I should be done! I'm just going to have to wait until he returns from Atlan...

Re: Biker Scout Build

I'm hoping we can get some time in the "Man Cave" this weekend to assemble the biker for the initial test fit. In the home stretch now! It would be nice if Mother Nature could cool down the temps just a wee bit so the garage isn't so much of an oven!

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

That could be a contributing part there. Despite the low-calorie/no-fat content of fruits and vegetables, there are still SOME calories in there, especially with fruits and the natural sugars and depending on the vegetable in question (and what is considered a "free" vegetable; potatoes would have ...

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

I'm not sure why I don't like it. It seems simple enough and I totally understand the concept for changing the points calculation but I guess the fact that I was on the old plan for over a year and very successful could have something to do with it. Maybe I was setting myself up for failure with a l...

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

Made an important decision today...I'm going back to the original WW points system. Since they changed in November, I've been gaining. I was allowed 18 points per day and was losing consistently. With the new system, I'm given 29 points per day. I did a little rough math and what I used to eat in a ...

Awesome! For the record, cats are not a fan either...they were sitting quietly next to me when I started the video. After the first few noises, they ran away :wink:

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

Once again back on WW and tracking my points. Weighed in last week and I'm down .6 lbs. It's a start...need to get back to my goal weight of 130! Obviously if I slack off and eat whatever in the heck I want, I gain weight...who knew?

135.2/134.6/130

Re: Biker Scout Build

Tony has been putting many, many hours into downsizing my armor. I would like to think this one is easier than downsizing a clone but I could be wrong. Is there anything he can't do? :love: Granted, there has been a lot of "colorful" language whenever he sizes the individual pieces on me. :wink: Hop...

Re: Voice amp/breathing sounds needed

get a cheapo MP3player, down load the breathing and play on loop. Just be careful on what else you put on it, we don't need a Vader singing "Don't You Want Me" or something like that. I think one of our Vader's had that happen and had to make a run for the back room. :lol: The playlist (for the rec...

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

OK, so, I ended up working that Friday, and DIDN'T get to the gym to sign up and I didn't get to talk to the PT guy... :mad: soooo lets be hopeful for tomorrow. On a side note, I did stop drinking MT Dew... I was drinking 6 to 8 a day. It was diet, but still pop. I haven't had but 3 drinks, from Ja...

Re: Biker Scout Build

I've set myself (but mostly my hubby) a goal...I want to be done by mid-February. Let's see if we can make that happen. Have to order my flight suit as soon as I'm done shopping for Christmas. Boots are in hand, just need to follow the tutorial and get them modified. Biggest part will be modifying t...

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

Dropped another .2 lbs at last weeks weigh in :D Picked up all the materials on the new improved WW plan. No longer taking calories, fiber, and fat to calculate the points value. New points values are comprised of protein, carbs, fiber and fat. All fruits are zero points and most veggies are zero po...

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

Dusting off my posts in the Fitness Center :) Went back to WW a few weeks ago as I hadn't been following the plan as closely as I should have and the pounds magically started reappearing...funny how that works! Happy to say that the last two weeks have shown a smaller number on the scale and I'm now...

Re: Biker Scout Build

Time to dust off this thread! Helmet is here (although it needs to be assembled, etc.), armor has had minor trimming done (to say I'm afraid of the dremel is an understatement), gloves are purchased and they fit wonderfully, boots still need a facelift, etc... This could take a while since Tony is n...

Re: Great Lakes Fitness Center

Went to WW tonight and weighed in...up 1.8 pounds! :( Not happy with myself but I know what I did to sabotage my weight loss. I was doing so good by tracking everything I ate that I slacked off and then I gained because I couldn't remember what I'd eaten! So, refocusing starting now! Tracking everyt...

Re: Some "Feminine" Mods to my Shock Trooper

The labor of love is finally complete...he finished it just before Motor City this weekend. I wore it Saturday and Sunday and I have to say, it's very comfy! Love, love, love my new armor!
