Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

This Sparked Me!

This is not for the faint of heart. After years of saying I was going to lose weight, I made the ultimate commitment. I gathered extended family members (16) and asked them to shave off my hair. I'm not growing it back until I lose 40 lbs.

This burn your bridges strategy has already been successful. I went through Easter gladly passing on bad food and watching my portions. I have run more miles this week than in previous 6 months. When I brush my teeth in the am, I smile and can run or be bald forever..get running!

Verdict? Down 5.8 lbs. Yes, some was water probably..but...2 lbs were portion control/calorie monitoring and 1.5 from aerobic exercise (walk/run) is water loss from paradoxically drinking lots of water..(Water is a diuretic), metabalic rate increase, etc
