I'm Still Here

Yes, I'm back on the block. I fell off there for a while. It was just becoming too trying and much too boring to try and chronicle every millimeter of my Sisterlock's growth, so I decided to give it a rest. I did not however intend to stay gone so long.

I've been keeping busy, working, studying Egyptian Belly Dance, working out - swimming, weight and cardio training. I've lost 20 pounds since I started September 1, 2008. It's been a wonderful journey and I am blessed beyond measure.

Thanks to my consultant, Lana of Braids by Lana, who retightened my locks on Friday, I have some new pics to post. She did a bantu knot set on me using Wrap A Locs. I kept them in from Friday to Sunday, and on Sunday she took them out and showed me some styling options. Like to see it? Here it goes...

@Sogolocs...I work out between 4-6 days a week, mostly 6 days, but I may have an off week occationally. I eat low fat, high protein foods. Fresh vegetables and fruit. I'll take a look at my food journal when I get to work tomorrow and try to give you a realistic idea of what a typical day looks like. I'm taking my time and doing it slow and healthy and not trying to starve myself or give up all the things I like but rather trying to do things in moderation and always incorporating exercise. I love to cook and love to eat and try things so living on carrots and celery was not an option.
