Wow, this thread is super old.. If I were dreaming (or living the dream..) I would live in Osaka/ Hiroshima/ Kyoto,.. not sure where yet. I'd have concert tickets for every single jrock band (that I want to see),. I would be fluent in Japanese, own my own place and have cute little Japanese babies,. Ohh,. And I would be slim enough to pull off any cosplay costume:)

EX-WIMPIE. baha,. 'leave a trail of blood in the gym...' graphic,. made me laugh,.

And what an awesome dream! Well done!

Ah, cherry blossoms. I read the hanami are parties sitting under the cherry trees. Now this does sound like a dream - I could handle.

Brilliant suggestion, Stevie! Actually, since this is the holiday season in the U.S., I was going to propose adding a new thread on "Japanese Holidays" in the General Forum, and about.com would be great place for information.

What do people think of the Japanese Holidays idea?

That sounds like a really good workout while you're in recovery mode! (That would be a really good workout for me NOW, but my knee couldn't do it.) I hope nothing broke open and started bleeding.

How does that wind work for you, that it pushes you along the whole way? When I did a lot of biking, the wind helped one way and was a curse going the other way!

Yes, going to dentists and specialists certainly stimulates THEIR economy, but doesn't help OUR economy!

*sigh* Didn't win any money on Wednesday's Powerball lottery either.

On the bright side, I lost 3 lbs this week! Another 4 lbs to go to relose the weight I regained from layoff emotions + convention chaos.

Your success with forbidden foods (and exercise) is why you weigh what you weigh and I weigh what I weigh. Awesome job!

I could say why that approach won't work well for me, but it's really all excuses. It boils down to "I Don't Want To."

emoticon emoticon That's great news, RIORIOGIRL!!

I'm not having any success on my dream work the last couple nights. This is typical for me and why I get frustrated and set my dream project aside for a while. *sigh*

I was thinking about someone I read about who used lucid dreaming to lose weight. Her technique was to go lucid in dreams and then dream she was eating all the goodies she was avoiding in her waking life. She claimed that she could resist temptation because she knew she'd be able to eat it that night in her dreams.

If that was working, she must have been WAY more consistent at becoming lucid than I am. I wonder if she had trouble later because those dreams reinforced the desirability of "forbidden foods."

Those are great dreams!

I had good times being a mom too, but I've always ended up liking whatever age they are at the moment the best. Lack of imagination on my part, maybe. My mom used to say she like us best from ages 2-12, and my dad used to comment "12? That's just when the kids started to get interesting!"

Yeah, we need an emoticon for eye candy! I think you should start telling yourself every night when you go to bed, "Tonight I will dream about Toshiro Mifune dressed in his Hidden fortress attire." (You might want to throw in some suggestion about romance so that you don't end up in a dreamtime war zone.) It will be so fun when it works!

Thanks, RIORIOGIRL! I've been having an especially tough time staying on track since (1) I saw that losing 32 pounds has made NO difference when I cosplayed in July, and (2) I was laid off. I haven't given up though.

mmmm... handsome samurai in kimono... Imaginary samurai is even better! My anime harem is wonderful. They always say and do just the right things, go away when I want them gone, and never comment on how fat & old I am.

Off and on I've experimented with lucid dreaming--I'm not very good at it--but I was working on changing my dreams "mid-flight." Someone suggested starting with something fun first, so I made my dream goal to have mad sex with my favorite (at the time) anime character, Miroku.

Finally, one night I:
(1) realized I was dreaming (without waking up in the process),
(2) called Miroku into the dream, and
(3) announced to the dream that Miroku was madly in love with me.

Well, Miroku looked at me nervously and said, "I think I'm gay."
emoticon
?!?!? Not even in my dreams? Then I thought, "Wait a minute! This is MY dream!"
emoticon
So I grabbed Miroku by the hand and dragged him into a shed, saying, "Let's find out, shall we?"
emoticon
Sometime later Miroku came out of the shed and yelled, "I'm not gay!"
emoticon
Best dream in my life! But the next time I have success with a dream, I need to add that I'M young and gorgeous.

A little tale just for fun...

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Oh yeah, my dreams aren't based in reality, but they definitely help keep me going.

Ah... Along with winning the lottery and vacationing in Japan, I'd love to get down to 130-150 (I'm 5'8") and look young and fabulous. Alas, I have so much weight to lose and I'm so much older than 21, I doubt that I'll ever have the classy chassie of my dreams.

Do these have to be dreams based in reality? emoticon

Well, first thing I have to do is win the lottery to finance my fantasies--or else have some unknown rich uncle die and leave me his entire vast fortune.
