She left me a text at 7:20 last night, asking me if Friday afternoon was okay. Well, I'd made an appointment with somebody new for this morning. I didn't reply. Due to the short notice, I kept my appointment with the new gal.
Guess what? I love her. She's got a great personality, we got on well, and she did a great job with my hair. So now I've got two hairdressers.
I'm going to have to text the "first" one and let her know I won't be needing her for a couple of months.

Wish me luck.
This is very scary, but I can't put it off any longer. I sent my stylist a text message three days ago, as I normally do when I need an appointment. But I haven't heard back from her.
She usually does take her sweet time responding, but three days? I don't keep my clients waiting that long. Even if I'm in another part of the country, I respond within a few hours.
I'm VERY apprehensive; last time I had to go elsewhere it was disastrous (twice) until I was able to get to her again. I'm not a diva, but my hair is one thing I am pretty particular about. I've always loved what she does, and I've always said so.
I don't get it. I tip VERY well, show up on time, don't pry into her personal life or drive her nuts chattering about my own problems (usually I read while she does my hair). WHY must she be so disorganized??????

I still get personal sparkmails and inquiries on my sparkpage about the little "LOST 130 LBS" icon I display on my profile. Yes, even here on Spark.
People want to know how I lost the weight.
It's a little embarrassing, because if you read the fine print, it tells you how I lost it: I lost it with SparkPeople!
I'm even more befuddled when people post new topics, wanting to know what diet we're on.
Okay, seriously? Because I thought we were ALL on the same plan-Sparkpeople!
Didn't most of us come here to get AWAY from fads and diets? Aren't most of us TIRED of yo-yo ing up and down every other year?
I joined SparkPeople because it was OBVIOUS that diets weren't helping me. I was disgusted with the state of my health, and felt hopeless. I knew I had to do something drastically different if I wanted to solve my problem and avoid surgery.
When I explored the site, what I found was unique. There were tools I could use to help me figure out how to get from where I was (330 lbs), to my goal of health and fitness. I learned about things like basal metabolic rate, resting heart rate, and target heart rate, and why they were important. I read about why it is so important to eat those five servings of vegetables, and I began tracking my fiber and sodium intake. Spark even shows me if my nutient ratios are balanced. And I discovered a whole library of exercises- with video demonstrations- that I could handle, even at my starting weight. Everything I could possibly need, was right here, in one place. For FREE.
With the help of Sparkpeople's great online tools, I completely relearned how to eat. I learned what a portion looks like, and learned that I was able to do a lot more exercise than I thought.
So, now you know how I did it.
Please, don't ask me what "diet" I used, and please stop asking about fads.
It hardly seems ethical for me to even discuss "diets" here, but I'll freely admit I lost weight by dieting in the past. I joined SparkPeople to try to get back to the size I was when I began my first "diet".

Don't put things off until you reach your goal.
Nobody should put life on hold until they lose weight. You should dress up, look great, and enjoy life as much as possible!
You should always take care of yourself, and look after your appearance. Go out and get your hair done. Buy new sandals, and have that pedicure.
You should always try to look your best and live according to your IDEALS- if your ideal is to be fit, healthy, and beautiful, you should start living your life as a fit, healthy, beautiful person TODAY. Very soon, your body will catch up!
