Go back to working out 5x a week again
It's really very simple...

I got a dog & I walk him 7 days a week. I lost 10 lbs not even trying.

I didn't give up...

grow out my relaxer and have natural hair (read all 2 entries…)
Last perm was Dec. 2008

I didn’t do the big chop…didn’t have the heart. My stylist periodically trimmed my hair and now I have maybe about an inch of permed hair on my ends. He says that I’m “claimably” natural (i.e go on & tell folks now—I already had). There are SO many resources online…too many to list here but check out:

In a previous post, I mentioned going to Dominican salons… they’re better if you have more perm than natural hair. Dominican stylists are rough with hair and natural hair needs to be treated very gently. With all the heat & woman-handling, it’s way too much.
