I was up 2.4 pounds to 145.6 pounds this month. But, that is a bit misleading. It was a cold, rainy day this morning. So, I wore warm, fleece lined pants and wore a light jacket over my T shirt which I didn’t remove when I weighed. A good part of the gain was due to the heavier clothes.

It wasn’t totally short any more and I wanted to grow it to shoulder length. I find that length from below my ears to my shoulder to be a really awkward time and I don’t really like my hair while it is growing out. And, that is why I got the permanent. [Read more…]
