So. I'm in the hair loss stage. Great weight loss, but I have found that the stories I've read all over the place are holding true for me as well. I'm losing a lot of hair. Because I have dread locks, it is sooooo obvious. My mother, who had hair loss from way back, looks at me with pity. My 6 foot tall, teen-age son stares down at my baldness. Last night, while looking at me from across the room, he asked me, "So, was it worth it?"
"Worth what?" I ask, because I had just been watching television. Minding my own business.
"Worth losing your hair."
Yes, it echoed in my head. Just like that.
I suppose it was. I'm healthier. I can walk 10 feet without sweating. I can climb stairs without huffing and puffing. I am beginning to look GREAT in my jeans. The list goes on and the pros FAR outweigh the cons. Yes, I think I'd do it again.
I suppose this may be God's way of keeping me humbled. Great body. No hair.
