My curls look fantastic, and I feel proud.
This is the first time in my life I have truly embraced my curls, and I feel proud and fantastic. I am Irish-Red Curly and feel I am embracing my heritage and whom I am as a person.

I have followed the "Curly Girl" wisdom, of the book. I no longer use any shampoo and put in water soluable gels everday and my curls look great, and shiny. I feel like a new woman.

This has been a rough year for me emotionally, and not only did I embrace my curls I have lost almost 60 lbs., I am ready to be the real me and it feels great. I just wanted to share.

Red and Curly, in Wisconsin :D

Congratulations on the weight loss AND finding your curly roots :wink: !

Yea for you! I'm so glad this is working out for you :D
I have been loving my curls sooo much lately. On Sunday I had lots of time before I had to work, so I took my time with my hair; plopped for an hour, added a tad bit more gel, diffused for a bit, then clipped my roots up a bit for more volume, then let it finish air-drying. All in all it took 3 hours start to finish (in between time I was doing dishes, laundry etc) Wow, I think it was my best hair day ever. Too bad I couldn't get a photo. Maybe next time :wink:

You know me as Determined in Boston (JC Boards)

Congratulations on both of those! That weight loss thing is so tough! You should be Proud! I'm Irish too, but not a red head ( I was as a baby) now brown with lots of read highlight (when I'm my natural color) ~~jax

Thanks Everyone
I appreciate all your feedback. It just feels good to no longer hide who I am, hide behind food, inactivity, or straight irons. I am who I am and I now love myself. Yippeeee!!

In Boston- Next time have a camera ready. Good for you.

That's really nice to hear redheadcurly 2007. Tell me, when did you begin CG?

Congratulations, for embracing your curls and giving CG a go and maybe more so for losing weight when faced with challenges, it's tough enough all by itself so you've good reason to be proud, sounds like you've embarked in a path of growth and doing pretty well. My best wishes for 2007! :)

Congrats, girl! I'm glad you've embraced your true self, and your true curliness! I'm so glad you've found that CG works best on your hair. I'm proud of you!

Thank you all for your well wishes.
Parci- I began in the beginning of November.
Kim- I am so glad. :)
Halfway, Redceltic, and Ladycurly- Thanks a million. I just feel great. I love who I am, and how cool is that? I do not let any outside validation tell me whom I should, or should not be. My ancestors did not straighten their hair, why should I?
