Yesterday I managed to go pull-free! Yes! So that is one day down and 165 days to go before the wedding. Doing well so far today, but I will update tomorrow. Night-time is my worst time so I can’t get too lax. Major triggers for me are: being tired, peanuts, caffeine, driving. It’s so gross. Hate that I have this issue.

My best friend is getting married on August 9th and I am her maid of honor. I have 166 days to get this nasty habit under control or I will be publicly humiliated. I want to feel great getting my hair done, don’t want to have to explain to yet another hairdresser about my bald spots and tell them that I have a thyroid problem or that my hair got burned in the hair dryer. ha!
So…this is my day one. I am super motivated to do this. Gotta make it happen.
With the exception of an eight month pull-free time in 2007, I have been pulling a significant amount for almost 10 years. That makes me so depressed. This is the reason that I have to stop this habit in 2013. I can’t be pulling for longer than a decade! One decade of this disgusting habit is enough. I will make this goal my number one priority this year…starting today! I plan to log my progress each day and hopefully can just count down the pull-free days. Looking forward to a time when I don’t have to worry about this anymore. I feel very positive and motivated!
So this past month and a half I haven’t been tracking my progress. It actually hasn’t been a bad time for me habit-wise, I just haven’t consistently done a good job and so have decided not to count the days. I would say I have had about 3 bad days where I have done a lot of damage to my hair. Other than that, a hair here or there. Not good, but not too bad either. I am ready now to set another goal and work towards it again. I would like to focus on 30 day increments leading up to a year pull-free. It will be extremely hard for me, but I think I can do it. I know that I can do these next 30 days and then we will see about the next and the next….
So…I haven’t pulled yet today and I am going to do everything possible to not pull the rest of the day or the evening. I will log in tomorrow and hopefully write an entry about Day 1 pull free!!
I will treat myself to something nice at each 30 day end…like a manicure or a new piece of clothing or an album on iTunes. I am totally ready to try this all again!!
I pulled today. It wasn’t that bad, but I have to be honest. I caught myself and stopped, but the damage was done. I thought maybe I would start over today, but I think I would rather just skip today and resume with my count tomorrow. Why unnecessarily punish myself? I am doing such a great job. So….today does not count toward my initial 60 day goal. We will see how I do tomorrow.
Yesterday was day 31. Doing great!
Yesterday was day 30. That’s just about a month. I have been playing with my hair a lot these past few days and pulling out loose hairs. Not exactly pulling, but I have to watch it and not do that. I am proud of myself. My hair is looking so much better!
Yesterday was day 27…it has been almost a month and it shows! I am really proud of myself and my progress.
Yesterday was day 25. I have been playing with my hair a lot lately, which has resulted in loose hairs coming out. I need to make sure it doesn’t become a habit. I am not counting those hairs because I didn’t actually pull them, but I know I am on the edge of a cliff and I need to pay attention or I could slip back into old patterns. So…still doing well, but I am going to work on being even better.
Yesterday was day 23. Still going strong!!
