Default Who says fat chicks can't have short hair?

I was in need of a reboot. A serious, serious reboot.

My weight gain is out of control because (at the heart of it) I felt unpretty, unworth-it, uneverything. I was having a mental block. So I decided that I need a big change to reboot myself. If you've been around the boards enough, you know that negative self-talk is one of my big no-nos. Fat you deserves love just as much as thin you! But suddenly, I wasn't living by that anymore. What the heck!

So I chopped off all my hair (which is kinda my trademark in my circle of friends). To be clear, my fantastic hair dresser did the chopping. I wanted to feel different and I totally do.

When I decided to cut it, I googled "Fat chicks with short hair" and I got this wonderful blog called The Nearsighted Owl and her hair cut is what inspired me. http://www.nearsightedowl.com/2011/1...e-haircut.html

You look amazing! I haven't seen you with longer hair (well, except for the avatar) but you are really rocking this pixie.

I think it's all about the face. Short hair looks wonderful on you!

You look beautiful!!! That haircut totally suits you. Whoever said fat chicks can't have short hair is an idiot - the only thing that matters is that you feel rad! Just wait until you see how easy it is to style in the morning - I loooove having short hair

ETA: hoooly cow I love the blog that inspired your haircut - 100% up my alley, thanks for the link!

So cute! The short hair directs the eye to your lovely eyes, then down to that gorgeous smile.

It's the perfect cut for you!

Adorable!!! I've been rockin' the short hair since my 30's as I've always hated long flowing hair on a super big woman, it always managed to look sloppy and like I was trying to hide something LOL

My hubby always liked my short hair too, he said he could see my pretty face a lot easier awwwwwww

A good cut is essential and that's IT, chica!!! so pretty!!

"Always managed to look sloppy" ?? hiding something? Sorry but this kind of bothered me. I have very long hair and haven't been told I look sloppy at all! I'm not trying to hide anything either..
