"Was it worth it?"

Nov 17, 2012

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.
