They look amazing.
How exactly would I be boring? And hes not a good role model for the boys, which is another reason I want him gone. He's kind of mean to them, he calls our younger son fat all the time, and he completely ignores our older son. As soon as he walks in the door he's totally focused on me. Or, he'll yell at our 2 year old about having a bink. And when I say something to him about shouting over something stupid he jumps on how I'm a bad parent because I don't discipline the boys (I do gentle discipline, I don't spank them.) My mom is noticing his crap too. A couple months ago she discreetly left a phamphlet on emotional abuse in one of my books. There was one time I called him out on it, and showed him the phamphlet and he flipped out. I've never seen him go crazy like that, I was actually kind of scared.
And sorry if I keep going on, I don't really talk to people much about this, they usually go on about how I'm stupid for getting back with him. Lol.
I've changed so much in the past week since I started my dreads. For as long as I can remember I was never happy with my hair. I hated it short, I hated it long, I hated it when it was down, I hated it when it was up. I was almost constantly brushing it because it was always getting tangled up. I spent 20 minutes every morning trying to flat iron it and fill it with waxy products so it would stay flat. When I finally started my dreading process it was the most freeing thing I've ever done. I never realized I could love this 'nappy mess' on my head as much as I do. After the first time I washed them with the bs deep cleanse my hair felt amazing. I decided that if my hair felt that good without chemicals, sulfates, and perfumes being put into it, then my body would feel great too. I went out and bought organic body wash, lotion, and deodorant. Im also starting to eat better, not just for the weight loss, but because it makes me feel so good. I'm more energetic, and in better moods.
It also made me realize that I didnt need to take any crap from my controlling boyfriend. He hated that I finally stood up for myself and I did something he told me not to do. Sad right? Our relationship will be ending soon, and I'm happy to say I'm not sad about it at all.
So you could say my dreads changed almost everything about me for the better. I feel almost enlightened. Sorry for such a long response. Haha.
I love the feeling! I find myself feeling them while I'm doing something. Their so freeing, I just wake up and shake my hair around. I also love all the weird looks i get when I go out, I thought I would hate it, but its actually pretty fun.
I'm planning on doing a 14 day water/juice fast. Depending on how I'm feeling after the 14 days I may try to go to 30. I want a complete lifestyle change. I'm tired of having cravings for fast food and other junk, that isn't good for me. My family also has a history of heart failure, and obesity. My question is, has anyone else done it? What can I expect (other than hunger)?
