So, I forgot to take a good before picture of my hair before I cut it. This is one of the best pictures I have showing the length of my hair, and it was taken in October, almost 4 months ago, so it was even longer just before I cut it.
Up close
I got it cut for free. A hair school needed models, so I decided to go for it. They didn't take the time to dry and style it, and when I left the salon I was actually kind of upset. Thankfully, after drying and styling it at home, I found I do like it. I am glad I didn't have to pay to get it fixed or go shorter than I want right now. I cut off a good 5 inches or so probably, it was getting really long. It feels much healthier and lighter and doesn't take nearly as long to dry. A much needed change.

And just for my own sake to see my weight loss progress, I decided to compare a picture of myself back in October when I was finally fitting into my size 6 jeans with a picture of myself today. I am now wearing a size 2. I have dropped 2 jean sizes and have gone from a large top to fitting small & medium. Now that I've lost all of this weight, 35+ lbs. in the past 7 months since Thomas was born, I am wishing that I took more pictures of myself so I could see the transition. Oh, well.
