    Thank you,
    I weigh 165.3lbs as of this morning. I'm 5'7". Not too sure about the rest as I measure bodyfat using the mirror method and a comparison chart. Almost 1 month post-op, and just finished week 2 day 3 of C25K. I restarted it as my doctor said I could start running again, but to take it very easy.

    Update:

    I can finally flex my abdomen. The bloating has gone down enough so that I can once again both flex and suck in my stomach. Here's my flexed and sucked in pose. BTW, I noticed the vertical line, I know I had abs somewhere in there!!!!

    I recognise those tattoos! Wow, good work lady!!
    They all look gorgeous in the pictures; but, if you don't mind my asking, has your weight loss affected your tattoos at all? Has, er, the canvas become unstretched or anything?

    I had a sense of something, but couldn't quite place it.

    Because of thier placement and where I carry most of my fat, no, my tattoos haven't suffered any. Luckily I never had and on my stomach, flanks, beasts, butt, upper thighs or rib cage.

    Thanks for your answer. (And hurrah that your lovely tattoos haven't been affected. :) )

    I'm fascinated by tattoos, but have never had the guts to go for one.

    Tattoo advice that's fairly universal from everyone that is extensively tattood. Unless it's something you really want forever, and are willing to take the negativity (oh yeah, there's a lot out there)that comes with having them, DON'T.

    If you want body art, but not something as drastic as permanent skin colour; henna!! As long as you take care of it, the art work lasts about a month then goes away.
