New hairdo

My hair has been the same for years. It is well looked after , I go to the hairdresser every four weeks, but today I changed the colour and the style. By the time I lose the other 5.5 pounds for the Easter challenge and get on those new jeans πŸ‘– as my reward, I reckon I am going to feel pretty great.

( Right now I really want to head to the fridge!!!!! So I am thinking positive thoughts instead πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡)

My hair has been the same for years - I have more on my chin than on the top of my head!

Go for a walk instead of going to the fridge - I should take my own advice, as it has now stopped raining.

Actually sitting reading through posts has stopped me going to the fridge, and I did do forty lengths at the swimming this morning and walked there and back to the hairdresser. It isn’t raining β˜”οΈ but it is blowing a gale out there. I am not going to ruin my new hairdo πŸ’β€β™€οΈ

If you had short hair, and you weighed over 100kg... you would be less at risk of being blown away. (A girlfriend of mine was blown off the path once - in a freak gust on an exposed nose, on a mountain in Scotland.)

Ah yes! As a former hillwalker myself I know what it is like to be on windy Mountain Paths. It can be scary. I don’t think I am too much at risk to being spirited away by the wind myself but I don’t like the wind much

A new hair do does you good I went for mine doing other day and he said to me I hate the back of your hair!!! I said well I can't see it and you did it so he did completely different and was going out for friends meal that night and everyone mentioned it. Hope you get a good response. And see you managed to resist the biscuit well done

What a cheeky hairdresser!!!! However, glad you got a nice result and some compliments, it does make you feel good when other notice, but if they don't, too bad, it is how you feel that counts

Love a new hairdo πŸ’‡ I went for a cut and blow dry on Wednesday, arrived looking like I'd been dragged through a hedge backwards, left feeling like a million dollars πŸ’΅ 😁 I bet that has really put a spring in your step 😊 you won't recognise yourself when you get into those jeans πŸ‘– fab 😊

You know I took my husband to the Turkish barbers on our 15th wedding anniversary two years ago in Istanbul, also our honeymoon city! (our then. 1.5 yr old went with us, grandma and Aunty kept the three older ones! As it was a gift from them)

And I just loved it! He doesn’t have hair on his head and just has a short beard but they made him look so pretty and he felt really special!!

Tried to get our 1.5 yr old his first haircut after but he screamed the place down!!!

I bet you look amazing!!! Congrats on the progress!! I have gotten some good ideas from the responses you have gotten. I am struggling with the "no one cares, I don't care" so I do very little more than I have to and I eat what and when I want!! Shame on myself! But depression sucks!! Hope everyone has a great weekend! I got a lot done yesterday and while I'm proud of all that I got done, I'm paying for it today. Pain is about normal 2-3 but my muscles are so fatigued they burn when I walk. Anyone with fibromyalgia or maybe neuropathy will understand, yesterday I took too many spoons from today. Soft hugs to everyone! πŸ˜ƒ

Hi there, yes it so great to know that you are not alone. There are so many wonderful people on this forum who give their time and support so generously. Sorry you are in pain, I don't know much about fibromyalgia, but I know there is a group on this site somewhere, so I hope you are finding support and empathy from them. Do something for me today, think kindly about yourself and reward yourself in someway that does not involve food. You think perhaps no one cares, you are wrong, I care, and I don't even know you, but I do know this. Life matters!! You matter!!

So, be good to yourself this day, and every day Xx
