Makeover!! Non-food reward

Feeling like I'm getting my life back. I haven't cut my hair, colored it or taken care of myself in five years since I gained so much weight. Today I cut my hair and went blonde again!! Feels much better to finally care.

Thank you. So many days I put myself down and call myself names. Don't think I will do that anymore.

Thank you. I think it's because I have had years of relevant people in my life treat me badly. Some of the words stick.

I know how that can make you feel as I have experienced it too but time to knock it on the head and practise a new strong mantra as 87down suggested.😊

Join the crowd! The folks who put you down may be jealous or see you as a threat. That is so sad. Don't let them get you down. You are a very pretty woman.

i saw a movie "Pretty Woman" where Julia Roberts says "the bad things are easier to believe." that is so true for me. i have had the same relevant people treat me badly too and it is so difficult to change the habit of believing them and telling yourself how bad you are too. if they believe it, i should too. but i am working on not talking to myself that way. it seems that you about have it whooped! good job baby!!!!!

Thank you. You don't believe the bad things either.

It is a lovely feeling to self care and take a bit of pride in yourself. It gives you such a boost in confidence and well-being - I really wonder why we 'punish' ourselves by not doing it more often.

You look amazing.

I am now going to chuck in the bin the last 'sack' dress I have - I was waiting until I had lost another few pounds - but putting it on makes me miserable - As a toast to you ( and me) it is going in the bin early - I already feel freer just thinking this:-)

I was the same - well I have always cut my hair myself but it's hard to take the same care. This year I've had two visits to the hairdressers and they were both so worth it. No colour as I'm lucky to have naturally dark blonde hair, but a good cut really brought the natural colour out. Also it feels good to have someone really taking the care over you. I hope they gave you lots of good advice to keep it looking good. My hairdresser said to put baby oil on the ends before shampooing to stop the ends from drying out. I keep trying to remember that :) Enjoy the feeling everytime you check out your new cut. It looks really fab :)
