Hey guys,. I know, I know it has been a minute and a day since I have updated. Boo... shame on me. I find it hard to update sometimes because, well honestly, I'm not that obsessed with my hair anymore. I have moved on, found other things to obsess over lately. My new obsession is losing the excess weight I have gained, so far so good.
Anyway I just wanted to share a recent hair update pic taken in May. I was so surprise with the outcome. I guess not obsessing is good after all!
Finally got my hair back to its pre relaxer length
After trimming, flat-ironing and bumping the ends.
Well my "kink" now ( for lack of a better word) is the fact that I am carrying 76 lbs of extra flesh on my frame. I admit I"m am really, really, really,(did I say really?) really, embarrassed that I allowed myself to get this far. What is worst is that allowed this gain to creep up on me in 3 years!!!!
I kid myself in to thinking that with all the stresses from everyday life, I didn't have much time left to pursue my health. I use to love cooking healthy meals and exercising, but somehow I fell off.
I actually started my journey around September or October 2010, by just changing some eating habits. In December I stepped on the scale and was down 18lbs without exercise. Go me! Quite an accomplishment, besides who loses weight around the holidays anyway.(Me!!!).
So stick with me as I detail my struggles, failures and eventual success.

Ok so hear me out for a second, I too believed that combing hair regularly will lead to a lot of breakage. However, through experience, I also realized that I lost a lot more hair when I don't comb often.
For the past couple months I have really been serious about combing daily. The tangles were border line nightmares so I decided to rework my regimen to accomodate my longer hair.
WoW can you say softer hair?
Not only is it easier for me to deal with my hair but I lose a lot less of it, come wash day. I figured with days of shed hair matted around unshed ones, it created an almost dreaded state for my hair which lead to rips and yanks because I was having a hard time detangling.
Anyway this method may not work for all but it definitely worked for me and I'm sticking to it (for now).
Im on a track to lose some weight. Over the past couple years the weight has basically crept on me... urgghhhh!
I basically can't fit anything in my closet and I refuse to buy a bigger size! So I need to set some goals and keep them. I think I'll blog about me ups and down while I pursue these goal and if you want feel free to join up with me. The more the merrier!
