Let me start by telling you guys that I ended up going way farther with the hair-stylist than I intended to... but I LOVE it! She really didn't cut much off, but we did a deal called a texture fusion perm... which means that I can now wear my hair curly or straight. When I wear it straight - it'll have more body than it does naturally... and when I wear it curly - it'll be more like hot rollers when it relaxes a little.
Right now it's pretty curly, but we'll see what happens tomorrow when I'm responsible for styling it. I'll try to get John to get a close up of it (if it's cute!) so that you can really get an idea of what it looks like.
As promised though, and I've been meaning to do it for a while... here are some new comparisons between me yesterday and the day before my surgery. I am really without words because I think part of my problem is that I never realized before surgery what I truly looked like to the outside world.
I still feel really fat, and am only halfway to my goal... but these pictures are painfully obvious reminders of how far I've come already.
Lets all just take a moment on this - because words escape me!!
