So I try to give myself constant reminders as to why I need to stick to my diet, and one of the biggest ones is...
"YOU HAVE A SHOW IN TWO WEEKS!!!"
That's a big one.
See, I have a show in two weeks. A show I'm already nervous about because we had to replace our drummer last week ($%#@!) and it's for a show that will likely be sold out. We're opening for Edguy, a band that I've been in love with ever since I heard Tobias Sammet's Avantasia. See, Tobias Sammet is the lead singer of Edguy, and his voice is one of the things that inspired me to start a power metal band. While we're not exactly power metal, my vocals and lyrics can certainly be described as such, which is something I'm really proud of.
We opened for Edguy and Kamelot last year, and the show was completely sold out. Line out the door, wrapped around the building, I couldn't even get in to see Edguy after our set because the crowd was too huge!! But this year I plan on meeting Tobias Sammet, and for that, I want to be thinner. This year, the show is going to be streamed live on the internet, and damned if I want myself televised with huge thighs. God help me, I will do something to lose a few pounds before this show. I have to.
