Girls Write Out
Tuesday, June 26, 2007
Did I REALLY say I wanted to make me over? Do you realize how hard that kind of work is? I've started walking in the mornings. Dave got my old bike out, the kind with the big wide seat and the brakes you backpedal. Anyone remember a relic like that? LOL

And did I mention it's gotten HOT here? What was I thinking when I said I wanted to exercise and get serious about some weight loss? I should have my head examined. LOL

And I still hate my neck. LOL But hey, I figure if the rest of the body looks better, maybe no one will look at my neck. And there are still scarves. Pammer sent me a super resource about style. It's at Fabulous site! I signed up for my personal profile and I'm going shopping.

But at what point do you do that? That's always my dilemma when I think about something like this. I want to lose weight so it seems a waste to spend money on clothes that might be too small in two months. On the other hand, weight loss isn't easy to maybe they would fit a while. And what if I like them so well, I don't want to lose weight? Er, scratch that. No outfit is worth that. LOL

And what about hairstyles? What's your opinion on short vs long when you get to be my age? My husband about has a cow at the thought of me cutting it any shorter but maybe it's time, you know? I need help!

Okay. You asked for our opinions. I'm assuming your hair is the length in the pics on this blog. I think it's a great cut and length for you, Colleen. Looks youthful and pretty, IMO. Best of luck on your diet/exercise. I'm in the same boat. Decided to join Curves this week with a friend, but alas, I had my upper impacted, causing-bone-loss wisdom teeth out yesterday and can't exercise for awhile. Just when I make up my mind to exercise. Drat. Oh, well. Maybe I can join next week. But no, that's the Fourth and we're having company for a week plus a Fourth party and then we're taking them to St. Augustine, yada, yada, yada. But your posts on this subject encourage me. Keep them up. Let us know your progress.

Thanks, Kristy! I'm never sure about stuff like that. LOL

I HATE dental problems. There's nothing worse.

NEVER - I reapeat - NEVER think age and hair length in the same sentence, Colleen!!!!!

While I finally cut mine, it wasn't because of age. I'm - well older than you - and I've had mine long and short and long and short again.

There's only ONE reason to cut your hair. Just because you want to. It'll grow again if you don't like it. ;o)

LOL Ane! I don't want to ever look like the big-haired woman with the face that looks 80 who is on Sky Angel network. LOL

I can't see you with really short hair, but maybe a little shorter where you can tuck it easily behind the ear...You have a carefree style that wouldn't look right with too much fluff. ;)

And hey, maybe a nose ring. LOL.

I love big hair. I miss the 80's when it was cool. Don't cut it unless you really want to--I've discovered that the hard way. Someday I'll be the old lady with the big hair, except it's unlikely I'll be on Sky Angel. As for the weight loss...UGH. I'm there too.

Have fun on your big-seated bike! I had a banana seat in the 70's.

My husband came home with rock climbing gear for us. Apparently, i'm taking up the sport of rock climbing. Hmmm.... the getting in shape thing will come far quicker than I expected. Wanna join us on the cliffs here in WI, Colleen? We can smash our hair under climbing helmets and it won't matter what length our hair is!!

How glam!

Girlfriend, you get yourself over to and find kindness and good style advice. Also, her book, 40 Over 40: 40 Things Every Woman Over 40 Needs to Know About Getting Dressed is great.

I just went to a stylist after NOT for several years! I love my new cut. The colorist is working on it tomorrow. If I see you tomorrow in Kokomo, you tell me what you think.

And I know what you mean about working out. But I always feel better about myself if I work out. (Mentally.) I used to teach P.E., fer crying out loud. I'm so far off my horse!

Makeover.I'm beginning to feel better about myself--just with the haircut. It's tough, and my husband wanted my hair long, too.He says he likes it...

Your hair is adorable and if your husband likes it then I say keep it. Mine is currently long because it is what my man likes and I like to please him. I guess I'm old school that way.

Anyway, they say that 50 is the new 30 so you've got many more long-hair years ahead of you!

At 9:17 AM, Blogger Colleen Coble said...

I'll check that out, Crystal! Jaime, aren't you scared to be climbing rocks? LOL

Well the consensus seems to be not to cut my hair unless I really want to. I'll think about it. LOL

Colleen, for all my bravado, I'm petrified!!

um...this is the sort of topic that can get a man killed. I'll sit this one out.

You have a great blog! This is my first time stopping in and I am really enjoying this!

As for hair...I think as we get older we go a little shorter but thats only because it is a more sophisticated, put together look. Long = young and fun!

So...dont cut it! lol

As for losing weight...I keep thinking about it. And well, I still am. (thinking about it) =)

Okay, on What Not to Wear they say do NOT wait until you lose the weight to dress. You might never lose the weight, you have to dress for who you are right now. You need some good slacks -- with a full, straight leg that's long enough to reach just above the floor. Get some good fitted jackets, that means they come in just below the boobage and give you your figure. You should never make yourself a blob. No matter what size you are!!

I'll send you examples. I need to crash now. : )
