Ode to Big Hair

Lately I haven't done much with my hair...sigh.
It has gotten so long that I just chose to wear it in single braids to avoid dealing with the nightmarish tangles. 
So I gathered all these beautiful big hair natural ladies to drool over.

Hair Update

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.


Nics, Nacs & Kinks?

Nics, Nacs & Kinks...
So what is my latest Kink? 
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.
