    Well, I haven't really measured much all year - I've been in mostly a funk and it hasn't really mattered anymore. But I voted "BSL" because I haven't even measured once since I officially hit that length. It feels long now, and I guess that's kinda good enough.

    I do look at it alot in the mirror and play with my hair and hunt for splits almost daily, so I'd still call me obsessed.

    I don't think I have stopped yet. I guess I will keep on measuring until I reach BSL (less than 2" away) and then I won't measure as often. BSL is some kind of mini goal for me, a proof of that my hair is growing.

    Ah...Vintage!

    I suppose bsl was when I stopped seeing how long my hair was every couple hours. Now that I am waist wet, but still bsl-ish dry, I am checking length a bit more often. I'm not obsessing over it though.

    I voted "haven't stopped yet."

    I was measuring every month so I could get an average growth measurement, but now I only measure every couple of months so I've stopped obsessing a bit in that category. I also only photograph every six months now as opposed to every three. BUT! I'm still doing other things obsessively trying to gain length like scalp massages, supplements, oiling and protecting the ends, protective updos, etc, etc.

    I think once I reach APL (hopefully at the end of this year) I'll be able to calm down a bit more.

    My hair just happened to be at APL when I got tired of measuring. It wasn't some magic point at all for me. I've since cut back to about shoulder

    I hit a stall at about that point, and measuring turned into an exercise in frustration. I've decided that I will 'measure' with body points instead of the measuring tape. My hair will grow in it's own time, it makes no difference whether I measure or not. Since measuring was getting to be a hassle, I chose to just stop. My sanity is more valuable to me than my hair.

    I'm not bashing measuring by any means. It was cool to know that I could expect 1/2 inch of growth each month, and I used to make little tickers to track my progress. It was fun while my hair was growing steadily! Now, I just try to keep it as healthy as I can, and just allow the growing to happen as it will. It's kind of zen-like that way.

    At waist it just started, because I discovered LHC! It ended somwhere between TB and classic, when the measuring tape started to lie.

    BSL pretty much ended me feeling like GROW!GROW!GROW!

    Now I still measure about every month but it's not a big deal...

    My obession ended after about 6 months of LHC membership and at APL length. It's longest I have ever had my hair and it feels long to me. I have now started to take sneak peaks at my hair-dos though

    keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.

    I never measured my hair until I found the LHC and now I faithfully measure every month. But when I think i am at a stall it is somewhat encouraging to see that I am still growing ( though just slow).

    I can't vote since I stopped at just classic I am more focusing on trims than length now.
    Although I trimmed frequently before too but length gain was the main focus.
