When I first began this journey, I set a goal of getting below 252 pounds. The last time I was under 252 pounds, I was 21; that was 14 years ago! I’ve been so focused on eating right, taking my meds, and exercising that I haven’t done much else for myself. But, I decided that once I hit my first goal, I would treat myself to something new, different, and exciting.
After thinking about it for a while, I went to Pinterest to get some ideas on what I could do. After a few minutes, I had it! Once I achieved my goal, I decided I was going to get new hair. That’s right – I got new hair! I got my new hair yesterday and I love it! The color is black cherry and dark brown and it’s beautiful! The cut compliments my face and I feel amazing.
I reached my goal last Friday and went shopping for my new colors on Sunday. I’m so fortunate to be friends with an amazing stylist who never ceases to amaze me. She totally rocks hair and she always makes me feel beautiful. I’m going to see if I get some better photos later today that really show off the true color of my new hair.
The biggest thing about this isn’t my new look – it’s that I hit my goal! I’m finally under 252 after 14 years! How freakin’ great is that?! I’ve set another goal for myself but I haven’t figured out what my reward will be but I know it won’t be food. Maybe it’ll be clothes – ugh – I hate shopping for clothes. But, that’s another post for another day.
I’d love to hear what your goals are so feel free to comment below. It just might help hold you accountable, too!
