long-time forum stalker, finally joined

Looks like I've finally made an account! Glad to actually be a part of the forum rather than just lurking.

Suellen is my actual name, but I go by Ellie. My hair is between a 2C and 3A (leaning towards 3A now that I've gone CG). I've been CG about two months now and I'm loving it so far, but progress has been hard to measure since I cut 10 inches off my hair about three weeks ago. But my hair is noticeably healthier!
no shampoo since Feb 2013
CG is just way too much to keep track of
medium porosity, medium density, medium everything
