I so did it...

Monday, June 28, 2010

Yep, in celebration of moving to stage 2 with Spark and just feeling frisky, this 38 year old went and got her belly button pierced!! AND, I may have also found someone to do my next tattoo too. This day has been awesome. I didn't do my walking today, thanks to the severe thunderstorms that came through this afternoon, but I'm going to make it up tomorrow. I really need to come up with something to do when we get rained out.

    oooh- I'd LOVE to see them all! I have a small Ankh on my back-need to get it reworked too. I'd like to get a wrist bracelet on my right wrist when I get to goal- maybe connected eternity symbols - one for each kilogram lost to remind me of my hard work- just in case the hand is stretching out to eat something I'd be better off without....

    In fact, if i had a smaller head (like much smaller!) I would seriously shave my head and have a tattoo done in the nape of my neck.....my husband's happy I don't have a small head! LOL

    PS: just saw you pics - LOVE them!!!!!!

    That's fabulous Juleebugg! emoticon Congratulations!

    I had been thinking of getting a belly ring when I reach my final goal weight and have a flat belly again.

    Sure, I have 3. My first was in 1990 or 91 and its a unicorn head on my shoulder. Then I got a dragon on my hip about 14 years ago. Then last year, I got a penguin on the outside of my ankle.The older ones need to be touched up and have color added still. I've tried to wait and let the original artist do it, but I guess after waiting this long, that's never going to happen, living in different states and all now. I've always thought it was kinda disrespectful to let another artist work on someone elses art. Now, I'm thinking as long as they do a good job and don't mess up the ground work already done, then its all good. Whatever you decide, you must make sure it's something you can live with for the rest of your life. The only thing I'd change is the one on my shoulder cause I never get to see it. Other than that, I love them all and they each have a reason. The unicorn was from a time when i was young and still believed in fairy tales, I guess you could say. The dragon I got after my first husband was killed in a car accident. It represents the strength and turmoil I was in. The penguin matches the one my current husband has on his arm. Penguins mate for life and thats our plan. If not, then its a penguin and I like penguins anyway so no harm done. I think it's a great reward idea. In fact, my sister is planning the same thing. I'll get my DH to take a couple of pics so I can add them to my gallery and you can see. My next one is going to be a celtic motherhood knot with my daughter's name and birthday and little stars for the ones in heaven. What are you thinking of getting?

    @ Chattiegirl-I'm so sorry. That is just horrible!!! There are plenty of other ways you can reward yourself. You could go shopping, get some new clothes, or some jewlery, maybe a new pair of shoes, or whatever floats your boat. Thank you and I wish you great success with your goals and lots of happiness and good times.

    Hi Juleebugg;

    Braver than me with tattoos and piercing. I haven't done any and I don't think I will. My daughter had her eyebrow pierced and when her father was sick she came to our home with his favorite rice pudding. She had a leather jacket on because it was winter and she got hot. She went outside and sat down and passed out. She went straight out on the deck floor and when I turned her over blood was every where. She tore the pierced ring out of her brow. I got her up and sat her on the floor and she fell out again on the back of her head. In the end I got her home which is next to us and after I had a glass of wine to settle down. Next my husband came out and said he was dying and I had to take him to the hospital and that is another story.

    God luck with you weight loss and healthy eating. May God always watch over you.

    Can I ask how many tattoo you have and what are they? I am thinking about getting one but I am not sure what or where yet! I have a weight goal in my mind if I hit I will get one. You have to reward yourself...so high five for that : )
