How did you do it?

Thanks guys!!! And thanks for the tattoo compliments! My ex did my back piece. It's the best thing that came from our relationship, and he's still going to be my artist for any future work.

I followed the guidelines from the book Skinny Chicks Don't Eat Salads. Basically I eat every 4hrs and make sure each meal has protein and carbs. And I keep a loose count of calories and try to keep it between 1500 and 1800.

I don't have a gym membership, so all exercise has been from going on walks, running outside, some jump roping, and I have some 5lb weights at home.

Thanks! It took about a year and a half. When I first started I didn't have a specific plan and hadn't read skinny chicks don't eat salads. Then I read it and started following the general guidelines (I can't do anything crazy strict, growing up I was a very strong willed child and the quickest way to get me to do something was to tell me I couldn't do it. So any diet that makes anything "off limits/ forbidden" was not going to work for me). I also had a boyfriend (the tattoo artist) for 6months and only lost 5lbs during that time. I didn't gain which is good, but it's a big part of the reason it took me as long as it did.
