Ok here goes,

When i began losing weight i was tipping the scales at 91kg's, i am a very short person so this is huge for me, i didnt realise i was so overweight until i saw photos of myself after i had lost some weight. I am currently hovering between 77-78 kgs, i would like to get back into the 60's as i havent seen these since early highschool. my ultimate goal so far is to be 60kgs.

When i got down to the 70's i gained so much confidence and i felt absolutely gorgeous, but sadly this has worn off and i am starting to feel like a heffer again.

my first mini goal is to be 75kgs as this was a weight i sat on for a long time before ballooning.

I cant wait to see what it feels like to be skinny and to be able to go into a shop and chose whatever i want, i still despite losing a fair bit of weight have trouble finding clothes to fit my arse lol... i am cursed with big thighs and hips, i look at this in a positive light though because when i am down to my gw i will be curvy lol.

I just need to find the motivation to get moving, i was going to take the dog for a walk tonight but i remember i have a three hour inking session with my tattooist, so this may have to wait for tomorrow night.

I started this post because i want to use it as sort of a diary type thing when i have achievments and slip ups or just random thoughts about my weightloss...

Congrats on losing 13kgs so far, thats awesome!

How tall are you? Its great that you have mini goals too, they're a great time to reward yourself to a non food related treat.

I'm looking forward to hearing and seeing your progress, you can do this!!!

They do hurt, but it all depends on the placement really... the one no the top of my foot only took 45 mins but it was the most agonising experience of my life i was shaking by the end.

last night was a bit sore towards the end but thats because i was also uncomfortable from sitting in the same position for three hours!

tattoos are beautiful! I am a bit of a fanatic as you will soon find out if you havent already picked it up :lol:

foot prints! i want to get my kids foot prints!

wow that sounds great... can't wait to see the pics.
and the footprints....awww how special.

I have just one I got when i was 19 (while bk now lol)... on my ankle..butterfly and flower. Ive always wanted another and perfect time will be at goal weight.
I love cherry blossom designs and love the meaning behind it. planning to get it on lower back. I also love the lotus flower, was thinking of top of foot..but decided the pain would be a bit much perhaps)

Do you get to watch Miami Ink and LA Ink on foxtel? great stories and gorgeous artwork!

Have a great day.. :)

I have had a small achievment.

Last night i went and got myself some daggy movies as i am all alone and no one can complain about my horrific choices haha...

i laid on the couch and watched two whole movies without eating anything! i was very tempted to go and get some doritos (my favvvvvourite movie food) but then i stopped and thought about it... i wont ever be skinny if i keep eating chips!

I am having a friend over today to watch movies so i am going to make some carrot sticks and cucumber sticks with salsa because i know hes going to be chowing down on lollies and chips etc...

I just have to keep remembering my goal! to be skinny then will be hot and i can find a new boyfriend haha, and i can get my sleeve, a sleeve wouldnt look very good on my jiggly arms :P

Wow grug 13kg weight loss - that's fantastic :!:

I so want to get a tattoo on the inside of my right wrist (if that makes sense) but then I'm worried that I'll get sick of it and I'll be stuck with it.

I was like that with my tongue piercing. I had it in for a year and then got sick of it :lol:

Good on you for resisting the chippies.

Congrats on resisting the chips during movie time, that is so great! I bet you felt so proud of yourself...that feeling is so much better than caving in.

How many tats do you have and where are they? You probably know this, but the foot is supposed to be the most painful spot on the whole body to get a tat done!

I have 3. First one, a tiny chinese symbol on my chest, didn't hurt at all. The 2nd one a patern on my lower back, it hurt a bit but was fine. The 3rd is on my belly around my belly button. That hurt a fair bit, probably coz it took 2 hours. The stomach is apparently the 2nd most painful spot to get a tat.

Show us pics when you get your new one :D

I wouldn't mind getting another 1 one day but hubby hates tats so I probably won't get anymore! I got all mine done before we met.
