forever marked by #ladygaga!!! I met her at the #artravechicago last night and got her autograph and had her write my favorite lyrics “if you’re a strong female, you don’t need permission”. I also got the word “Sire” ala her “Little Monsters” tattoo because the song she sang for me that she wrote about Michael Jackson was called “Sire”. I can die happy now. #ladygaga #gaga #me #tattoos

Updated Progress Post: From 2011 to 2014, from ~200 pounds to ~130 pounds now (lowest weight was 122). It took me a year to lose the majority of it, since then I have been maintaining, gaining muscle, and getting even healthier. I am a certified personal trainer now and have written a full guide to losing weight and getting healthy here. I also offer online and in-person training, which you can read about here! There was a point where all I wanted was to be skinny, now all I want is to be healthy. Soon to be a group fitness and yoga instructor as well, getting in shape has completely changed my life (I used to be in Culinary School for baking and pastry and now I’m a personal trainer? what?) and daily I try to inspire others and help them make that change. 

The last question I got inspired me to do a tattoo post. So these are all I have so far. On my upper left arm I have MJ’s signature, his silhouette and the signature of my favorite MJ impersonator that I’m in love with lol. I also have MJ’s logo on the same arm and a Thriller zombie hand on the inside of that arm, with MJ’s eyes on the outside of the arm. I have Captain Jack Sparrow’s tattoo on my right arm and that’s it for that arm so far (I plan on getting a Darth Talon tattoo on my bicep soon). I have Lady Gaga’s Born this Way unicorn on my left thigh, and my Freddy glove + Robert Englund’s signature (he did actually sign my leg) on my right leg. Soooooooooooo yeah. 

me minus 60+ pounds and plus some muscle. still working on getting dem abs. i am now a certified personal trainer and helping others reach their goals as well! as you can see, this took me 2 years and i’m still going. clean eating, working out, consistency, time and dedication is what it takes. don’t give up!

before/after thong thursday edition. yeah, i put a troll face over my boobies. u mad, bro? 
clean/healthy eating + working out like a boss = losing over 60 pounds and changing my entire life.
i am now a certified personal trainer and you can email me at makethatchangefitness@outlook.com if you’re interested in my services! 


I figured being back in NM and at my old house called for some new after shots. Same bathroom, totally different girl now. It’s almost been two years since I started my journey. 

You’ve gotten so small that your phone is almost as big as you. :)P

They will look fucking awesome soooo no.

Finally get to wear my heelless shoes out somewhere. I figure it’s appropriate since I will HOPEFULLY be buying Lady Gaga’s Fame perfume today. I enjoy getting dressed up and making myself look attractive lulz. Mitch and I are going to the mall and then we’re gonna see Total Recall!

hello world

gonna go to a street fest tonight, just waiting for mitch to get homez!

I really need new blogs to follow.

My dash is so dead. Reblog this is you’re a fitspo blog, MJ blog, Lady Gaga blog or if you post tattoos, pin-up, horror, sci-fi, cosplay, nerdy shit, porn, etc. 

Freddy shirt, Freddy glove, Freddy tattoo. 

Ever since I’ve been seeing Halloween stuff out and about, I AM SO READY for freddy.

Also this shirt is like 90 times too big for me since I got it before I lost weight. It is long enough to be a dress now though. 

I haven’t posted a progress picture in a while, and I suppose the fact the I am FINALLY making progress again means that I should. I wish I had a full body before picture, but I don’t. So, there ya go. The before picture is from the day I started my journey. I took a picture of myself and told myself that that was the last time I would ever look in the mirror and see that.
