Today is day 35 of my streak!

(Previous streaks; 290 days and 13 days.)

My personal theme for the month is to be my own Valentine! I am going to treat myself with "outrageous kindness" all month long...and beyond! So to get my month off to a great start, I treated myself to a haircut at the salon today! I was way overdue for that...my last visit to the salon was in June. With hubby still out of work, I just didn't feel we had the money for me to spend on a haircut, so I've been living with my hair either tied back in a ponytail, or covered with a bandana. So I was really excited to finally get a haircut today!

I've been going to the same stylist for about 3 or 4 years now. I never mentioned to her that I was trying to lose weight. Well, when I saw her today, she looked kind of surprised and said "I don't have to ask how you've been doing...you look great! You have a waist, girl!" It made me feel so good that someone has FINALLY noticed my weight loss! She asked me how much I'd lost, and how I did it. After I mentioned that I've lost at least 71 lbs now, I had the attention of the other stylists and customers in the shop. Of course, I told them all about Sparkpeople. So maybe some of them will join!

After I got my hair cut, I came home and styled it so hubby could take new front and side pictures of me. I have not weighed myself since last September, and I don't plan to weigh myself again until March first. But I will be having new front and side pictures taken every month from now on to help me see my progress, to keep me motivated and to keep me accountable! So here are my starting pictures from last March, and my newest pictures from today. (If you want to see my "in between" photos, they are in my Spark photo gallery.)
















I still have a long way to go on my journey to my goal size, but I am fine with that. I am in no rush...I am making the most of each day and doing my best to enjoy the journey!

    Wow, what a difference girl, and just look at all the progress YOU have made. You betcha, February will be your Valentine month and you deserve it and you know what??? I deserve it too after the work I've put into losing my 60 some pounds and then gaining some back and now I need to get it back off plus. So February is my Valentine month too! Yes to both of us! We can do it and oh..................I love your fluffy new hair style. So cute and preppy!!
