Welcome Family and Friends!

I hope you all enjoy my efforts here!

Jan 4, 2009


I realized, since I asked people's opinion of my "hypothetical" hair makeover a week or two ago, I ought to show the results. I ended up getting something like neither picture. I attempted to get my hair styled like the short blondish "do", but it didn't lay right on my head. So I told her to go shorter, trying to get it to lay right. Oops! It's only hair! It will grow back!

I also colored it myself. I decided to use the "golden brown" that looks blondish on the internet, and auburn on my head it turns out! :)

Oh, and I was waiting for awhile to post, as I was going to get good pictures to post, but that never happened! :) It turns out that all I have it my "not so good" efforts at self portrait!

I go through stages, tolerating it to really liking it. I won't allow myself to hate it on the days I'm not so sure about it. I don't accept negativity! :) A couple of comments from friends tell me I look 10 years younger! I hold onto that one on the days I'm not so sure! :) Love it or not, it's only hair! It will grow if I want it to, and can be colored "ad nauseum" if I want to! For now, I'll just enjoy my new "do"!

You already know I love it!!! It really does make you look younger :)

I find that I alway think that people lose weight...get a face lift etc. when they cut their hair!

It will take me a couple of weeks of seeing you to get used to your "new look" since I have only seen you with long hair. But in your picture here on your blog, you actually look more "sophisicated" and professional looking. Of course you needed to go lighter. Blondes do have more fun. I admire you for daring to cut your hair!

I found you blog thru following the 'teacher' link on my profile (I was looking for someone of like sensibilities and age... just wandering). I'm always immediately intrigued by anything weight-loss or make-over... and Oh my goodness!! Congratulations on the new you!! Wow. I'll have to read on ( on another day) to see what your secret is.

I lost 35 pounds last year, and am still on board for losing the next 20 pounds this year.

I like the short hair (and the long).
Thanks for letting me visit :)
