A few days after I got back from Tunisia, I shaved my head ... well actually James shaved my head ... and seemed to get a really kick out of doing so.
Why did I have James shave my head? Well, there isn't really any one answer ... more like several answers.
Firstly, I got the idea from seeing pictures of different ethnic groups in African, where the women wore shaved heads and the men wore long dreadlocks ... COOOOL I though, an inversion of the Western norm ... I can dig that.
So, I tried it when I first lost weight many years ago and thought wow, this is so freeing, so practical, so low maintenance, so cost effective and ... ummm, it's a slightly androgynous look which I thought/think best describes me (This from the girl who just bought this HAVE TO HAVE stereotypical girly phone.)
Anyway, back to the point at hand. I guess the bottom line is I wear my hair like this when I feel best about myself and I'm feeling pretty good just about now ... It's spring ... not that you would know it from the weather in London (yes, it actually snowed last week), work's going well, I'm 10 kilos closer to my goal than I was last August, and I'm beginning to feel the kind of confidence in my body that I've only felt when I was thin.
I know that I promised photos from Tunisia, I've been quite busy with several projects and hadn't had the time to sort through the oodles of photographs from the trip.
Last night though I stayed up really late and was able to put them into some rough categories. So starting from Monday, in celebration of the last 7 days on my food and exercise plan that started back in August of last year, I'll write a post everyday and apart from food and exercise updates, I'll add some photos from my trip in the following categories and order:
*Tunisian Doors - They have the most remarkable doors I've ever seen
*People - Met such lovely people
*Landscape - Incredibly varied and beautiful
*Accommodations - Also incredibly varied
*Culture - Don't have nearly enough photos in this category but ...
*History - Very interesting ruins all over the country
*Miscellaneous - There's always a miscellaneous, isn't there?
Have a great weekend!!!
