Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

This is not for the faint of heart. After years of saying I was going to lose weight, I made the ultimate commitment. I gathered extended family members (16) and asked them to shave off my hair. I'm not growing it back until I lose 40 lbs.

Seeing the real me.....and loving myself.

I asked myself this question. What if I saw myself the way my friends and family sees me ? Attractive, powerful, loved without conditions, and worthy just as I am. If I see myself this way, I can love myself they way they love me. This has made all the difference.
