Weight Loss Journey: First 49lb Down ! Goals & Plan

Hey Everyone 

I decided that after 8 months that I would start sharing my weight loss journey. Weight is a Sensitive subject for me, but I know that it is only God's Grace and help from my Family & Friends that got me here and I want to be a light to others who deal with obesity and self image issues.  
Below is my First video in the Vlog series about: GOALS AND PLANS.
 I started my WLJ ( weight loss journey ) at 307 lbs and today I am 258 on 3/8/12. I have lost a total of 49lbs. and want to achieve my healthy BMI of 150lbs. I am 5'5 and have been over weight MY WHOLE LIFE. This is a MIND, BODY and SOUL journey that will take so many tools and support to reach my 157lb loss. Currently I am working towards 10lbs per month.

4C Natural Hair Blown Out n Curled Up!

As my hair has grown out a lot and styling can sometime be more difficult. I blow dryed my hair using the Conair Styler 1875 and used Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque and Pure Coconut oil on my hair. I protected my hair with the SILK ELEMENTS MEGA SILK HEAT PROTECTION SPRAY
I foamed rolled my 4c natural hair, setting it with Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel. 
The results created a cute curl pattern for my afro,but didnt give it a smooth roller set look.  The curls only lasted a few days in this tight curl patten, but loosed very quickly. I have experienced longer lasting roller set results,without blowing out my hair first.
