I love this thread so much - it is so inspiring to see how everyone else is doing, especially on those days when I just want to throw in the towel. I'm only on day 58, but I'm so, so happy with my hair, for the first time in 43 years - and today, a lady behind me in the check-out line at the grocery store complimented me. She said my hair was pretty. Pretty! I have never been told that when my hair was in its natural state. Bliss!
