Month 1 – Length Check

As I mentioned, I hate doing length checks.  I understand their purpose and relevance, but I dislike doing them for the same reason I dislike weighing myself – sometimes the results can have a discouraging effect.   Plus, the pictures are hella hard to take.  But… if you wanna go somewhere, you gotta know where you are first.  So yeah.  I get it.  But I’m not making any promises on when the next one will be.

I refused to purchase a length check shirt when I had a kazillion white tanks that I wasn’t using/wearing regularly.  So I made my own with my own corresponding body measurements – I have a short torso and wide hips, so I figured it would be better to just use my own clothing.

When I do a length check, I measure where my hair naturally falls and then I pull it taut to see how far it reaches down my back.  I don’t usually measure where it falls in the front, but I threw a sorta front measure shot in for kicks.  That’s the best I can do.  *shrug*
