    I don't think these are necessarily rewards.More like now that I have more confidence,I am doing them LOL.I got my tongue pierced in April and I got a new tattoo in May.I am planning on getting another tattoo(in honor of my mom-getting it with my daughter-is her graduation gift)probably in a few weeks.I am also thinking about getting my nose pierced LOL.

Seriously, I went to buy work clothes because my slacks went from a 24 to a 14/16 and my top is a freakin 12/14. I had to return half of the stuff the next day when i came back to bill reality. SIGH!!!!! Maybe my final goal will be a job as a stripper so i can pay off my bills
    I do that too,don't feel bad.

    chin lipo/tuck and implant. I have always hated my profile and double chin. EVERY woman in my family has it. But first I have to lose any weight that might affect it.
    See ya at the beach, I'll be the fat one in the thong.

    I've had a tummy tuck and a breast lift. I'm still a 38 C but they just look great. My tummy is flat as a washboard. As many moms, carrying these boys took a toll on my body so I got that all fixed, but just be warned even after lipo and a tuck the weight can come back in different areas. Really bites. LOL

    But what I want to say was in regards to finding a reputable doc ... can not stress enough how important this is.
    I got my recommendation from my gyno - it was the surgeon his wife used. Now THAT is a recommendation.
    He said - do not go to anyone advertising on tv, someone that is putting their kids through college, or one that can get you "right in"
    Good advice. So sharing.

    For those of you who are considering plastic surgery I have a great site that you can visit. It is a wealth of information. You can locate doctors in your area, ask questions, read personal experiences, etc. Visit Implant info .com (remove spaces for web address). Under "discussions" you will find links to other websites for various cosmetic procedures (i.e. tummy tuck, lipo, face lift, etc). Have fun!
    Thanks for the info. You are doing great on your own. You are really gonna kick a.s.s. on phen.

    Tarheelgirl, you have done a phenomenal job. You better let all the regret fly right out the window. I said this is another thread, but now that I know you have new gear to sport, I am really anxiously awaiting a new pic.

    A breast reduction would be wonderful, but I could never afford it.

    SO...I'll go for my vain side. I want to go back to my hometown, go to the bar where all my friends hang out and watch their jaws drop to the floor when they see me.

    Getting a tat that I thought of and my brother designed as soon as I can afford it...he's getting the same tat...it's in reconigition(sp) of our Irish heritage.

    Well clothes of course, because I will be a new size. But really I would love a breast lift and then to go on a cruise with my husband. We have never been on a vacation without the kids. Actually I have never been away from my kids for more then a few hours (ages 6, 4, and almost 2). I think I would be nervous and worry at first about being away from them for so long, but eventually I would be able to relax with my hubby. I was going to do these things this summer, but the money situation didn't work out. Hopefully, next spring I will be able to do this.

    i don't really reward myself with anything that costs money.....but i am just rewarded by the way i feel when i see that number go down. sounds cheesey, i know. but, it's true.......i LOVE to buy clothes, but i don't because i haven't reached my final goal so i will just grow out of those within weeks if i did buy. luckily, i didn't used to be so big so i have lots of jeans that fit me as i lose weight. when i reach my final final goal i will probably go on a shopping spree.

    I've wanted to get my belly button pierced for years, and a tattoo when I decided what to get. I'd love to go somewhere warm and bake my a** on a beach with just the hubby and no kids!

    Default Kookai stores here i come....

    i cant wait to lose enough wait to be able to get into those darn Kookai clothes. Has anyone seen their sizes???? they have an option of size 1 or size 2.... and they are on the smaller scale too!!!

    I love Kookai clothes ... they are the sort of style that suit me. But alas when i was able to wear their stuff, i was a lowly university student and did not have enough money to even walk into a 'branded' store. Now that i do, i dont fit into any of them. how unfair is that... hopefully in the next four weeks i can finally splurge on that shopping spree

    HEY! Same here. I am getting a tattoo in August for my birthday, so I am working my butt off to shed 25 more by then.

    And I wanted to add I am going to have some professional photos taken. i have spent waaaaay too long hiding from the camera.
