Bear with me guys this is a two-part story!!
Hey, world! So yesterday I did a thing... yep you guessed it I cut 💇🏾♀️ALL of my hair... 😳 Yes, ALL of it! It was the most liberating thing I have EVER done in my life. I feel free and most importantly I feel beautiful. If you really know me then this shouldn’t surprise you I’ve cut my hair and grown it back every year since 2014. My natural hair journey has been just that a journey. But this time was different. I got a relaxer and burnt my hair out with the flat irons. So in my mind, the only thing to do was to cut it off. This time was different because I wasn’t just cutting it low cut some of it. Like I have a fade 😳.
Now please know this was a major decision for me that I went back and forth on for a while. Mainly because of my weight 🐷... So let’s get into that. I lost 16 lbs. last year and by December I had gained it ALL back 🥴 I know you are probably thinking to yourself how 🤔 well guess what ME TOO 😂😂😂! On my list of things to do for 2020, I wanted to lose 25lbs and maintain a healthy weight of 130lbs. Welllllllll I know what you are thinking and you’re right! I didn’t lose anything I GAINED weight. I have complained about my weight for the past 6 months but I have also done nothing to lose weight.
As I complained about being big and possibly being bald the guy I’m dating gave me some real talk 🥴😳🙄 this man told me we were eating clean the rest of the summer, only drinking water the rest of year, and working out and doing hot yoga. Can you say pissed 😤 I was like wait are you calling me big and are you really trying to put me on Kanye’s Work out a plan.
Once I got out of my feelings and really listened he made a promise to do this with me to make sure I’m comfortable with what I see every day. This extra push from him and the support from my family gave me what I needed to go I bald and tackle the weight. So today starts my journey, I‘m BIG, BALD and BEAUTIFUL! But I won’t stay that way. Every week I’m going to post a recap of my meals and workout and give an update on my hair growth. Please join me on this journey to healthy hair and a healthy life.
Stay tuned this is just the beginning 😘
P.S. I'm ditching my wigs! Everybody is going to see this bald head 😏💁🏾♀️
