I'm at my goal and my "what I'm going to do" is to make sure it NEVER comes back again. I'm having a wonderful time buying clothes and living again since I feel so good.

Ditto. I'm also enjoying buying some new spring clothes!

Get a tummy tuck. I have lost the weight before and needed a tuck then...LOTS of extra skin hanging around (literally)...should have done it then. So this time...it is ON.

What a great question to stay motivated. I am going to get a fabulous new wardrobe in Europe (I've always wanted to go!) I've already started a savings account for every pound I lose in a two week period I sock that amount of my paycheck away into a special account (if I can afford to its nice to see one number drop and a new number grow!)

I'd like to hike the grand canyon, stay at the ranch on the bottom, and hike back up.

One of my goals is to do a triathlon (sp?). My DH says that because of my weight, it's not good on my knees to do any type of running. I need to lose the weight first then start running. He says it'll be harder on my knees if I start running now.

Keep doing SB forever so I never have to lose this weight again.

oh sadly they are decompressing as we speak... they are down from 48 DDD to about a 42 DD but i can cram them into a 38DD (when I roll them up)

by the time i'm done they will be C cup i'm sure and need nothing but a lift.

a maxtopexy... lots and lots of stitches... and not covered by insurance.

nessa-lol. I love being in a c. I used to be 40 DD which is the same as 40E and sometimes I would be an E. After the surgery I went down to a 40C and I love it. They did the lift with the reduction and it was soooo nice. I didn't have to wear a bra for months because they were so nice and perky. But because skin stretches, I had to start wearing bras again. I am satisfied with what I have but I know that when I lose weight, it'll get smaller. That's ok too though. I had alot of stitches and staples. My internal stitches tore when I had to pick up my son who was 3 months old at the time. But it was all worth it.

My cousin had a breast reduction years ago. My Dad offered to send me there for a "transplant".

When I drop the weight, I'm going to go on my honeymoon. I just got married 4/5/08, and we took a 10 day vacation, but I told DH that I didn't want to take a honeymoon till I was under 200, and even under 175. So, that's my motivation!

BTW mare, your wedding picture is very cool! But how did you keep that dress clean out there in the desert?

Schmoodle, I didn't. We just got back about 10 days ago, and I've yet to take it to the dry cleaner - but it's got to be done.

Thanks. We went out to Sedona AZ for the wedding - just the 2 of us, at sunset. Very nice!!!

Schmoodle I was wondering the same about the dress. LOL But I agree very cool pic Mare.

Ok so, once I am at my long term goal I plan on getting a tattoo on my lower back.

After I lose the next 10 lbs I'm treating myself to getting my nails done.

And then the next 10 lbs I'm treating/torturing myself to a brazilian wax. (I'm scared) lol

I've thought about a breast lift...I do have hangers, but they used to be managable at C cups...the DD/DDD has really made them sag more. BUT, I don't want general anesthesia. I hate the idea of elective surgery. I keep thinking of Kanye West's mom.
I know I will buy new clothes, I will HAVE to, but that will happen as I go along this journey.
I think maybe a couple really nice evening gown/cocktail dresses would be a nice treat.
I would love to go on my dream vacation to Italy, but I will go at any weight! We just have to take the time and save the money.
So many things to think of...but I also think it is important to live your life in the NOW, none of us is promised another breath, so, don't put life on hold until you lose weight!

I wanted a breast reduction until I lost the weight. Now I just want what little I have left moved back where it used to be. They seem to think they've retired and should move south, far south. :cry:

I can't wait to ride roller coasters again. I love that stuff and I know I'm missing out.
And just like everyone else, I'm going to keep it off!!!
