I love The Biggest Loser. The new season started tonight, season 8 baby! These contestants are massive. It is nuts to think that I sit here obsessing over the 8lbs that I have to lose when some of these contestant need to lose >300lbs to just be in the average weight to height category. I need to start running again, soon! Jillian is psycho! She is a hardcore bad ass--I want her for my trainer. Can I call NBC and order a Jillian for delivery? I know I need to eat better, I need to get on that--I'm better than I have been in the past, considering I started nursing school roughly 15lbs heavier, but I want to be better than I am now.

Also, I started a hair routine called "Curly Girl" by Lorraine Massey. It is basically about getting rid of silicon and sulfates from your hair care supplies. I basically revamped the supplies under my sink. I started it 2 weeks ago and initially (as I was warned) my hair looked super crappy! It just started to get increasingly worse until today. I was really discouraged at first, but today was my first good hair day. I had to play with all the new products I bought to figure out a good routine for me and man, that was difficult. So, fingers crossed, I am going to run the same routine tomorrow after lecture for clinicals. I am going to try to keep a decent record of everything so I can see before...and after. Hopefully I will have beautiful curls like I used to have. Here are some of the pictures. All of them are taken after my hair is completely dried and usually after I went out somewhere--it is usually a better depiction of what it looks like because it always grows and frizzes after I leave.

Here is my hair 2 and a half years ago when I cut all the damaged parts of it off and made it super short! (Mind you, I'm literally 25lbs heavier, so excuse the fat face).

Then here it is a week ago when I started the CG routine with all the right products on September 8, frizz and yuck!

Here is my hair on Sept 13:

Then Sept 14:

Then here it is today after I did my hair and went to lab. (Not great, but getting better--I'll take anything I can get at this point!):

i have to say that after reading this and seeing your pictures, i don't really miss my curly hair.

don't get me wrong, it looks beautiful on you but i don't miss the hassle of doing my curly hair.

can't wait to see more pictures as you continue your new routine!
