New Before & After Photos, And Here's The Result Of My Haircut!!!

Hey Ya'll,

*** Well, we went to our Hairdresser Roxanne today and I got my....REALLY Short Haircut today!!!  Now I just have to get used to it.  But I do love the fact that it should be so much easier to work with, especially since I don't have much hair left!!  LOL

*** I am also posting some photos taken today showing what I look like now, just 1.8 lbs shy of a 50 lb loss, and what I looked like Pre-Surgery.  Hopefully you can tell a difference!!  One of the places that I wish I could lose faster is my Neck!!  Unfortunately, my family has thick Necks, so once we gain weight and the Neck thickens, it is hard to lose it!!!  This is one of the areas of our body type, that holds on to the fat!!!  You tell me, can you see any difference???

Well, I gotta go for now.  Don't forget to check out the photos below!!  Till next time....

Aloha My Friends  :)


This photo was taken about an hour ago.  I need to purchase a new bra, this one is way too big and just makes me look larger than I am now!  LOL

Here is my new haircut from the front.

And of course, this is how Roxanne styled it.  I usually blow dry the top back away from the face, so I will try to take some photos with it styled my way as well later.
















And here is the back!
















Here is my Pre-Surgery photo from the front.




















And my photo from today!




















And my Pre-Surgery photo from the rear.




















And of course, my current photo of the rear end!!

Wow Debi, what a difference in your before and afters! Whooohoooo. You are looking so good, and you look so much happier too.

Love the haircut too. I think its very flattering for you.

Looking good all the way around!

Debi said...

Thanks Ali!!

You know, I didn't really see much of a difference, until I posted these photos and looked at them in the blog. Go figure! Pictures really do help us to see the changes in ourselves!

Thanks Barbara! I will find out tomorrow when I try to style it myself!! But I know it will be easier to take care of then what I was used to!

You look great!!!! Love the haircut. I can really see the 50 lb difference. Great job!

Wow Debi! You look terrific! I can totally see that 50 pound weight loss! Your neck is SIGNIFICANTLY smaller! And your arms and stomach are a lot smaller, too. You're lucky though -- you had small hips even when you were bigger! I love the haircut on you. It makes you look a lot younger! Keep up the great work you foxy minx you!

DB said...

Debi - you look FANTASTIC!!!! I can really see your loss. I love your hair - very flattering & that top is AWESOME :)

Lena said...

Great pictures!!! There is really quite a difference. And I love the cut. I bet it is so much cooler to get the hair off your shoulders. Lookin' good chickie.

Sandy Lee said...

You know I love pictures but you don't have to post pictures of someone else!

Whoops!!! That's you in both before and after. You look amazing. And I love the haircut. I've been thinking of going shorter too. My hair is too thin. Congrats on the 50 pounds. One pound at a time is my mantra now.

Pie said...

You look great and the hair is very sassy!! I wish I could cut my hair that short and look that good! You before and afters are so inspiring, thanks for posting them!!

Nella said...

Hey Debi,
Great pics!
I gave you an award, you can view it on my page!

TJ said...

Great pics!!! If I had seen them somewhere else I wouldn't have realize they were of the same person. And 50 pounds!!! That is great! I normally hear 50 pounds a year and you are months shy of that. Way to make these last couple months work for you!

Jess said...

Awesome pictures, awesome progress! And I am loving the tattoo on your leg!

Jenny said...

Holy Moly! You look amazing! I love the haircut!!

Nadene said...

Debbie you look amazing! the new haircut & weight loss has taken 10 years off of you - and I bet you feel better to boot. YOU GO GIRL!! Love ya, Nadene

Debi said...

Angela - Thanks so much!!

Caroline (Lonicera)- Thanks! I will have someone take my photo up in Portland, hopefully by then, I will have lost even more weight!! I want to break into the 170's!

Dawn (DB)- Thanks! You look fantastic too!! The top is actually too big for me now! But I had bought it through the mail from Jessica London.

Lena - Thanks! And yes, it is much cooler!!

Sandy Lee - Thanks and LOL!! You're too funny!! My hair is really thin too, but I said who cares??? I love it. And I too go for one pound at a time.

Pie - Thanks so much, and I do feel more sassy!!

Nella - Thanks! And thank you so much for the Award! I will respond to it in my blog in the next day or two I promise!!

Tracy - Thanks! But you have lost so much more weight than I have, and are almost at your goal! You have lost 38.4 lbs more than I have in the same amount of time!! But then, you have been eating right, from the beginning, plus exercising daily!!!!! But at least I am back into losing again!!

Jess - Thanks! And if you are interested in seeing the entire Tattoo, check out this link, they are toward the bottom of the photos in this post. http://hawaiiboundbandster.blogspot.com/2009/09/whats-next.html

Jenny - Thanks!!

Nadene - Thanks Nadene, I only wish it made me look that much younger! We love you too!! Hope you had a Happy Birthday!! You gift is in the mail!!!

TJ said...

Debi, I repeat you are doing great! 48.6 pounds in less than 10 months is absolutely fantastic. I could compare myself to those some of those out there (like Amy W) and I wouldn't come close. You are on track to lose everything you want within the standard 18 months and you will be smaller than I will. My goal right now is just to be under a 30 BMI and yours is 23. It might take me much longer to get to that goal if I even could :)

Enjoy sunny California and happy early 10 month bandiversy :)

Debi said...

Thanks Tracy! You will make your goal too!!

Aggie said...

Debbie,
You're looking great! Love the new haircut, too. It makes you look young and hip! The before and after pics are amazing. You should be very proud of yourself.
Keep it up.
Aggie
