Thing #3: My Short Hair

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

I'm posting my third thing today since I have a few minutes to spare.

My first two "loves" were personality traits, or things about myself that I love. Now I'm going to head into uncharted territory - something about my appearance that I love - wha, wha?

You heard me :)

My third thing that I love about myself is my hair!

I have always loved short hair. Even when I was little I did. At one time in High School I did grow it out long, had a perm, you know the deal if you're a child of the 90's :) - Can you say Banana Clip anyone?

But without a perm in my hair, my hair is so thick that it doesn't really DO anything unless it's cut in short, layered, razor-cut locks.

Now when I began to lose weight I also started growing out my hair. I wanted to be like one of the many success stories I've seen on Spark, many of the before and after pictures where the person who looked frumpy before (and many just so happened to have short hair), and then in their after picture they had gorgeous, long strands of hair. It was a complete transformation. I wanted that, too.

But the problem was, my hair wouldn't cooperate. It grew only so long, then the ends grew brittle and broke and I felt like I had a mop of dead hair on my head. I didn't like it, but kept up with it, adding conditioners to the ends, hoping it would get better. But it never did.

And I missed my old, short hair. I would look at others with cute, short hair and get hair envy.

I could still be cute, sassy and fierce with short hair. I decided to chop it off!

And I LOVE it. I'm not looking back. No more guessing about how fabulous I could look with long hair. Short hair is for me, baby!! And I LOVE it.

Here's a comparison picture of me at my near high weight of 278 (pictures of me at 298 are hard to find) and today.

I think I look cute in both. I still love me no matter what.

But I can't help but smile at how you can see my jawline now, and my double chin that has taken a vacation from my neck!

This is me!!! And I'm ok with that!!! I love it!!!
