365 Days of Self Portraits: Days 100-106

Ereading

In an effort to gain self confidence and deal with body image issues still remaining after my weight loss, I decided to take part in a 365 project focusing on self portraits.  My hopes are that after a year of taking a photo of myself ever day, that I will stop hating photos of myself, stop picking apart the things I hate about my body and learn to accept myself in a way that I haven’t been able to before.  It is uncomfortable, challenging and at times scary as I am also putting myself out there in a way I ...

Fighting Back

Adventures in Geocaching: Green & Park Rotterdam

parkgreenfeat

Back in May Xander and I went geocaching for the second time, and I totally forgot to write about it!   It wasn’t long after our first geocaching adventure, and it looked like quite a fun one to do.  We were going to see a film that morning and decided that since this particular cache was in one of the parking areas in the city center, that we’d park there, walk to the theater and then do the cache before hopping in the car to go home. What I really liked about the cache was that you were supposed to be ... Read More »

My Gastric Bypass: Post Haircut Hair Loss

hairlossfeat2

WOW, what a difference a haircut makes!  Check this out. This was my hair loss before I cut my hair: That wasn’t even the worst of it, this was when it just began. There were days that I easily lost twice as much, like what I lost on this day: So after getting sick of it I decided to cut my hair shorter and now I am having a major WTF moment, because look at what I find on my hands in the shower now, since the haircut: WHAT IN THE HELL?  It’s hardly even there! So my only conclusions ... Read More »

My Husband’s New Wife

haircutfeat

Don’t worry, I’m still talking about me!  He hasn’t gone out and found another wife or anything, even tough I’ve been urging him to find one that likes doing housework.  I could get into a little Sister Wives action if the other wife would do all the stuff I hate. No, what I’m talking about is my husband’s recent exclamations about how he feels like he’s getting a new wife! There have been changes happening over the last few years, especially since my gastric bypass in January.  It was only over the last few days that he’s really been feeling ... Read More »

My Gastric Bypass: The Hair Loss Continues

hairlossjunefeat

Well it’s been a month now since I first started noticing an increase in my hair loss, and it hasn’t slowed down a bit.  If anything it’s gotten worse.  The only good thing, if there is one, with this hair loss is that it’s happening all over my head rather than just on the top.  With the Androgenic Alopecia that I had from the PCOS it all seemed to come out on the top of my head and the crown but this is coming from all over, thank GOD.  If it was all just concentrated on the top I would ...

My Gastric Bypass: Getting Real About Hair Loss

hairlossfeat

First, let me say… UGH! Second, let me say… DOUBLE UGH! Right, well now that I have that out of the way, I can get down to the topic at hand, hair loss. The view this morning when I looked over the side of my chair.  A graveyard of lost hair I’ve pulled off my shirt over the past day or so… and that is only this one particular spot in the house. Not even the tip of the iceberg. I have to give a bit of a disclaimer here because the hair loss issue is nothing new to me. ... Read More »

Dr. All In Your Head Redeems Himself

Ok, so as I mentioned in my post about my latest visit to the Doc the one thing he did agree to do was to send me to get x-rays of my foot.   I’d stepped on one of the dogs toys months ago and my foot has been bothering me since.  After squeezing around my pinky toe for a while and hitting the right spot, he pretty much had to peel me off the ceiling.  His opinion was that since there was nothing broken and it being so tender in that one particular spot, that I injured the joint and ...

The Long Road to Bald

breglass1b.jpg

Over the years my hair has been getting shorter and shorter.  Mostly because my patience for long hair has been becoming shorter and shorter too!  In the winter months it’s fine but in the summer I hate having a lot of hair.   My hair is really fine so it tangles easily, and I just get too warm with it all hanging down around me. I’m quickly learning that what I like the look of doesn’t always jive with what I can manage or deal with when it comes to hair. A few years ago my hair looked like this.  I ... Read More »

Ultra Violet

Once again I’ve decided it was time for a change with my hair. I’ve had it black now for what seems like forever and I’m bored with it. I saw this color in the shop and decided to give it a go. It’s for darker hair and it lightens but I don’t think it will cover the bits that are still black very well.  I figure I’ll get a mixture of purplish colors and black, which works ok for me. On the other hand it could fuck up completely and I’ll have to shave my head but at least it’ll ... Read More »

HITLERGOLF!!!

HITTEGOLF – When I first saw this word today the first thing that came to mind was Hitler, don’t ask me why. I’d probably have the same reaction if I heard Hitler was coming to the Netherlands next week though. So I’ve decided to create another Canadutch word (along with Hubbetje and the like) and call this Hitlergolf. Xander sent me a message this morning on MSN: Blasphemer says: http://www.nu.nl/news/750071/74/Hittegolf_verwacht_in_Nederland.html Breigh says: what’s a hittegolf? I went to the link to read the article and as I read through it, the meaning of hittegolf became more and more clear. While ... Read More »
