Piercing bug

I don't know why, but I have a strong urge to get something pierced again. I can't explain it. Like four holes isn't enough.

I got the industrial eight months ago. I just recently got a new barbell that's a little longer and black, to kind of mix it up. I thought that would satisfy my curiosity, but it didn't.

First of all, I don't know what I'd even get pierced. I've always wanted to get my lip pierced (the vertical variety with a ring). Other people probably wouldn't think much of it, but none of my holes are for other people anyway. A tragus or another industrial would be good too.

But the other thing is that my piercings have all been important and symbolized something. The first two were associated with my realizaton that I needed to better take care of myself, while the last one (two) was for meeting my weight loss goal. I guess just wanting to do it for myself should be a good enough reason. But perhaps I should tie it in as a reward for additional weight loss. A lot of people seem to think the previous loss was dramatic, but I still have a bit to go.

What is your weight loss goal? How close are you to it?

Remember, weight loss is ALL about sacrifice.

Good Luck

Weight loss being all about sacrifice is sort of a half-truth. Weight loss is actually about balance. Our bodies aren't meant to delete carbs, fats, etc. Having a balance of those things will actually make your body a calorie-burning machine. Coupled with exercise and it works much faster.

Who ever said too much of anything is a bad thing had food in mind. Maybe you could sacrifice the fried potato skins, but not delete them all together (As long as you don't eat that fried stuff EVERYDAY). For instance, peanut butter is high in protein, but it is also rich in fat and sodium, but not much. So a little doesn't hurt, but too much can be counterproductive for weight loss ambitions.

You have to go in thinking it's more to do about following a new nutritional lifesytle than sacrifice.

100% correct. Balance/moderation is the key to weight loss.

My wife recently took on the nutra system diet and has lost 25 pounds in 2 months. She eats 4 balanced meals a day has more energy and works out.

But you have to amid, there is some kind or sacrifice. Something most American's are not willing to do.
