So, I've kinda been focusing a lot of self-improvement lately. I've wanted to lose weight for a long time, but since I lost my dog last week, I've felt a lot more driven for some reason, and less distracted by video-games.
Well, I've still got a long ways to go, but I'm steadily making progress. In fact, even though I'm still way overweight, I'm feeling a lot more enthusiastic about the future now. For the past five or six months, I basically just got super down on myself, and having even bothered to get a haircut. Also, I've grown a pretty thick beard (though I still care enough to trim it down from getting scraggly, lol). Well, it's actually gotten to a length that gives me quite a lot of options; I've always worn short hair in the past (even shaved my head bald, once), but it's long enough now that I could try it long, too.
Now, obviously it would be a lot easier to get advice if I had a picture, but honestly, I just don't have a means to get a picture up. That's really fine either way, though; I'm still a long ways from my goal, and I'm just looking at what will be a good look for when I *do* get in-shape. I'm about 5'10 tall, really muscular frame, with red-hair and fairly light skin (and freckles, though not really on my face), and I wear glasses. In terms of body-type, once I drop weight, I'll probably be something a little closer to a less-chiseled Vin Diesel (really broad shoulders and muscular chest, though maybe a bit shorter). Right now, though, I'd probably be a little more comparable to Jack Black :P
Personally, even though long-hair absolutely annoys the hell out of me, I'm leaning towards something mid-to-long length for a haircut; maybe something like this:
...but maybe coupled with a short beard? Or will that look too "grunge-y"? Keeping in mind, I'm 24 years-old, I want something that people will be able to take me seriously, but honestly, I'm more focused on just trying to look good. Yeah, I know that's really shallow, but since I've pretty much always been overweight since I was about 15 or 16, becoming attractive to women is really my biggest motivation (surprisingly, even when I got up to just over 300 lbs last year, I was actually in quite good shape, with really good blood-pressure; weird, that).
Anyways, I know this is probably too long a post over something so simple and stupid, but... well, it helps keep me motivated, I guess!

EDIT: Or for that matter, should I just go with something short? The only issue I have there is my eyebrows are really light, and the longer hair-style kind of masks that a bit. Still, like I say, I'm complete open to suggestions! :P
