100 lb. Club - I am around...

View Full Version : I am around...

I swear I am.

It's just that it's less that two weeks until the spring dance festival and polishing, practicing, costuming all takes LOTS AND LOTS OF TIME. My girls are both doing solo's AND groups so it's a lot.

Edited to add a youtube video of my oldest Daughter Madeline's classical ballet solo :) She's seven.

Edited AGAIN to add a youtube video of my littlest Daughter Olivia's variety solo. She's five :)

I AM staying totally on plan. Stalling a little bit this week weight wise but am going to shake it up with raising calories by 200 a day for a week or two. I might have dropped down to 1700 too fast and may need to shake it up a bit.

So I'm here. I love you ALL and I'll be a much more avid poster AFTER the 20th ;)

There was never any question that you were staying on plan, HotMama --- but we did have some very interesting ideas about what (or who!) might be keeping you so busy lately. ;)

Sounds like you are working at least as hard as the household stars of the show! Good luck to your girls and we will look forward to hearing all about it once the dust and glitter settle.

So glad to hear all is well. I'm sure your girls will do just great in the festival and will be adorable.

Don't let the stall get you down; it will pass! Take care!

Miss you, but glad you are doing well!

I wondered why I hadnt seen you....!!!!

OMG, CFMama, your daughters are beautiful ! And so poised about being on stage and performing --- in addition to doing this weight loss stuff right, you are obviously doing the parenting thing right, too.

Thank you for sharing!

Here's a ballerina for THEM to enjoy!

HA Numina! That made me laugh!

Aw thanks guys! They both got rave reviews yesterday at polishing so I was pretty proud of them :)

Good to see you!!

Great videos, your daughters are beautiful and I loved their performances, so did my boys.

So cute!!! They are super confident to be able to be up on the BIG stage all by themselves for their solos at such young ages. Great job! (And great job to you and your dh!!!)

Hope they have fun at their performance!!! I know some of my favorite memories as a little girl are of dance class and the recitals.

Recital is so low key compared to this (thankfully.) They do their recitals at the end of June. This is a province wide dance competition! They are pretty excited.

Both my girls are very full of confidence and pride. They are wonderful girls and dancers.

Thanks everyone for your wonderfully kind words!!!
