Time for a change

I still can't quite believe it. Last night I had about 6 inches cut off my hair. I've been trying to grow it out forever and it was finally down past my shoulders WITH it being curly. It's now a chin-length bob. It looks cute, but I still surprise myself when I look in the mirror. But, it was time. All I did was put it up in a ponytail. Plus, I was shedding so much I there are days I could have made a wig for Barbie! But, most of all, I needed this for myself. I was just in a rut. I've only got 10 lbs left until I hit my weight-loss goal (I've now lost 35 lbs) and I needed this. I've tried buying myself new clothes and decided I now hate shopping. (I know some of you are gasping considering I used to be a shopping queen.) I think a lot of it is because I'm so used to seeing the extra weight on me that when I try on clothes I still see the fat. So, maybe this fresh new look will help me out.

YAY Marissa! That is so exciting!! I totally know what you mean about needing a change! I did the exact same thing, but I also colored my hair! It's an awesome feeling to do something different! It makes you have a new outlook on things! Being 10lbs away from your weightloss goal, is amazing! Something to be very proud of!! Awesome!! I'd love to see a picture of your new do! That was a little shocking to see that you hate shopping, but I know what you mean! I hope you are enjoying your new do!! :)
