Hair Freedom

Monday, February 21, 2011

Saturday I cut off all my hair. Well not all of it. I have about two inch left but since my hair has really really tight curls it looks like a teeny tiny afo. I have decided to make a fresh start. Little to no chemicals in my hair and hopefully less and less in my food. I have had such a rought time of it lately. financially, spirtually and physically. After i cut my hair, I felt very depressed. The decision to cut it was because i could no longer afford to keep getting it done. I cried and cried. I then started emotionally eating. I mean eating everything in sight. I had a whole Red Baron supreme pizza, some grape soda and chocolate chip cookies (notice the s on the end, that is not a mistake). I really felt so beat down I woke up on Sunday and looked in the mirror and for a minute I did not know who I was. As I kept looking, I decided that I need to get to know myself outside of the straight hair and other people opinions. I have been playing at losing weight. I have not exercised at all in I don't know how long. I mean a walk her and there a exercise regiment does not make. Als, when i was looking the mirror besides the hair, i did not recognize my body. It has bumps and lumps all over it. What in the world happened to me. I know I have been EATING the wrong things or way to much of the right thing. No excersise and Lots of stress. I have decided that I am going to dedicate the rest of this year to growing out my hair naturally and to becoming healthy. My son has picked up on my bad eating habits and that has to stop. Threw away most of the junk food and will be throwing away the rest. We have no will power in my home. If it is there we want to eat it.

I feel much better sharing and thanks for reading!! Feel free to share any comments or advice emoticon
