        No nothing has changed drastically except that 10 years back I was a kid and now I’m a full grown woman of 21!

        • November 25, 2009 10:31 AM

          Well that IS a transformation for sure. 😀

          MAN I wish I was 21 again but know what I know now!!! 😀

    Well.. I would say that I changed one husband for another.. but actually, my biggest transformation was losing 86lbs .. I went from a size 24 down to a size 14 by doing nothing but watching what I ate and walking…

    No surgeries, no diet pills, nothing extreme .. just walking and watching what I ate.

    Of course.. after achieving that milestone, I hook up with a fucking Chef that believes butter and bacon make everything better so now I’m up to a 16 .. but it’s still better then a 24!!

    • November 24, 2009 9:02 AM

      86lbs? Wow, that’s AWESOME Leese and good for you!

      If I was married to a chef, I would be needing a SERIOUS diet. Wait, I already need a SERIOUS diet. LOL

    does dying my hair orange and shaving a checkerboard into the side ala Cyndi Lauper style in the 80’s count? If not then I got nothin. Tattoos do they count?

    • November 24, 2009 9:03 AM

      I would say they all count. LOL I would have loved to see your Cyndi Lauper look!

      • November 24, 2009 3:29 PM

        I would have loved to have pictures 😦 but our whole gang just wasn’t into photo taking..we lived for the moment..thought we were timeless and just didn’t think down the road we would want to show our kids! 😦 DAMMIT ALL!

        • November 24, 2009 9:41 PM

          I know what you mean! There are A LOT of things I wish I had photos of from when I was younger. *sigh*

  4. November 24, 2009 8:01 AM

    About the only crazy thing I’ve done is chop off my long hair for a short ‘do. That’s usually what I do when I want a new look is change my hair style, but it always goes back to the usual!

  5. November 24, 2009 9:07 AM

    I think my most drastic change would be last summer’s mohawk. I miss it actually! Everyone said I looked really good with it.

  6. November 24, 2009 9:18 AM

    I lost weight too. 50 pounds. It felt great but after 8 years, it’s all back on. I am trying to work on it again. All I did was watch my fat content and walked/jogged.

    • November 24, 2009 10:02 AM

      50 pounds? Wow, that’s awesome Joy!

      Just keep working at it Joy. We know you can do it! 😀

  7. November 24, 2009 9:46 AM

    Lost 20 pounds after deciding I’d had enough of having to buy the next size up every time I bought new pants.

    Either that or the unintentional bleach-blonde she-mullet I got when I was about 19 years old in the eighties. Spiky on top and long in the back. NEVER allow your friend who is in beauty school to experiment with your hair. And especially not just a few months before your sister’s wedding in which you are a bridesmaid.

    • November 24, 2009 10:04 AM

      A bleach-blonde she-mullet? Oh man, that sounds sooooooo COOL! No, not really. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

      Photos Terri…..we NEED photos of your she-mullet! 😀

    Mine would probably be the weight loss as well. I lost about 80 pounds but I have since gained some back over the past year. Now I need to take off 20lbs again. I have always gone back and forth on my weight. I think it’s genetics because my mom and grandmother were the same way! That’s my reasoning and I’m sticking to it!! 🙂

    • November 24, 2009 1:56 PM

      What else could it be Heather? Congrats on losing 80 pounds! That’s awesome!

      You will lose the other 20 pounds. We all have faith in you! 😀

  9. November 24, 2009 10:44 AM

    I cut off most of my hair ala Jane of the GoGos. I loved it, but some of my customers were rude about how much they hated it.

    • November 24, 2009 1:57 PM

      Wow, that is rude! They actually told you they hated it? WTH?

  10. November 24, 2009 10:47 AM

    I had a nose job….not my choice! 🙂

  11. November 24, 2009 11:03 AM

    I had breast augmentation…totally my choice! 😉 I’d get a nose job too if I had the money and someday I will!

      Sometimes I would like to have a breast reduction, but I haven’t. It usually takes me awhile but I have lost all the baby weight and some extra weight I gained after the baby. (43 lbs in the last couple of years)

      • November 24, 2009 1:25 PM

        I have a girlfriend in need of a reduction..we always joked we could under at the same time…just hand over her boobs to me! I never wanted huge boobs just some that better fit my body.
        Baby weight is really hard to lose, especially when you gain 60 lbs! UGH! I got down to where I wanted last winter and now have gained 20 back! 😦 It’s hard to keep it off. If your breast size causes you pain your insurance may cover some or all of the surgery. Have you looked into it?

        • November 24, 2009 2:03 PM

          Shhhhhhh, PLEASE don’t encourage her Nikki! LOL

      • November 24, 2009 1:30 PM

        Yes Paula, insurance most likely will cover surgery! Not sure what you all need to do before surgery is your only option left, but with the ones we’ve done, the insurance company says “x amount of grams have to come out” in order for it to be covered. Finding that out might be the easy part! Finding a surgeon who can reconstruct them to look great could be a challenge and it’s not a scarless surgery. All this boob talk makes me want to get new ones!!!

          Thanks girls….I am surprised Gary is not flipping out here.

        • November 24, 2009 2:04 PM

          Oh no, I totally disagree! There is NO WAY insurance would cover something like this. We would have to pay for it ALL out of pocket and well…..we just can’t afford it. Sorry honey….looks like the big boobs stay!!! 😀

      • November 24, 2009 2:02 PM

        The 43 pounds is AWESOME and I KNEW you would do it! The whole breast reduction thing….uhhhhh….yeah, not so much. Why would you want to make my happy fun bags smaller? They don’t need to be bigger…they are PERFECT!

      • November 24, 2009 3:31 PM

        OMG..of course..see what HE calls them? “his happy fun bags”! Just like a man! Congrats on the weight thing Paula…I thought you looked amazing the one time I got to see you!

        • November 24, 2009 9:43 PM

          Well yeah! When we got married what was hers became mine and what was mine became hers. As soon as we said “I do” my balls were put into her purse and I only get to borrow them from time to time. I figure if she can keep my “boys” in her purse then I should be able to call her boobs my “happy fun bags.”

          If you think she looked amazing the one time you saw her you should see her naked. WOW! HOT! 😀

    • November 24, 2009 1:59 PM

      I can’t imagine how much a nose job costs these days. 😀

      • November 24, 2009 2:36 PM

        anywhere from 4,000 to 7,000…typically. Believe me I’ve looked into it and asked my plastic surgeon if he’d do a double surgery for cheaper…NO…worth a shot though! I thought a 2 for 1 was a great idea!

        • November 24, 2009 9:39 PM

          YIKES! That’s uhhhhhhhhhh…..EXPENSIVE!

          2 for 1 deal wouldn’t be too bad but a doc would never go for it. He/she wouldn’t make as much money so no way they are gonna do it. LOL

            Actually Gary, that’s not bad for surgery. It’s expensive, but when you think of boobs costing the same amount it’s all relative. And when you’re talking about your breathing, it’s worth it 🙂

            • November 25, 2009 10:29 AM

              I never thought about a breathing problem. If you had trouble breathing and a nose job would fix it then yes, that would be a small price to pay. I was thinking strictly cosmetically.

              • Sue permalink
                November 25, 2009 1:58 PM

                Strictly costmetic it’s not covered, but if you have breathing problems and the doc can make a case for it, then it should be covered. Doc’s know all sorts of tricks 😉

      • November 24, 2009 3:32 PM

        my neighbor gave me mine for free..although not what I would have asked for if I were paying for it. Her and I was trying to fix their old homemade camper and one of the rods slipped and cracked me in the nose and broke it…like 10 years ago. Now it’s not only big but crooked too SIGH! I don’t remember ever seeing that much blood!

  12. November 24, 2009 3:37 PM

    At my highest weight, which was in high school/early college, I was (approximately) size 16. I got down to a size zero in college and kept it up for a few years. NOT healthy for me. I’m now about a size 8. Much healthier.

    Yep, had the girls done! 15 years ago. Mamma’s gonna need a new pair soon…lol. I didn’t do it cuz I looked at myself and said “God, I want some big knockers.” After I had my 2 kids my normal weight was a buck seven soaking wet. I had put on 50 lbs with both pregnancies and when the weight disappeared it took my once perky boobies with it.

    I told my surgeon, make sure I’m proportionate. I think he did a great job! So do all my ex husbands and boyfriends. 😉

    You know it’s bad when your Mom goes to surgery day with you and comes home and tells your sisters. “Don’t tell her I said this…but she needed it!” I love my Mom!

    • November 24, 2009 9:47 PM

      Your gonna need a new pair soon? How do you wear them out? Wait…..don’t tell me. Ohhhhhh fuck it! Tell us how you wore out your boobs! LOL

    SUDDENLY BEGAN TO LOOK OLD WITHOUT MY CONSENT.

    • November 25, 2009 10:31 AM

      Ya know, I have the same problem LVISS! I never gave myself permission to get older but it doesn’t seem to matter. I am starting to look older and older every day. 😀

  15. November 26, 2009 4:52 AM

    I lost a lot of weight a few years ago which improved my quality of life by an unmaginable ammount, It help with pain and gave me a bit more mobility back. Best thing I ever did. ( dont know if i can post a photo here or how)
