I love these boards and have missed being here...yet again. As so many others, I allowed life to take me hostage. I am back now with a renewed sense of purpose.

I have finally been promoted from my bellydance class to the performance group. This means lots of wonderful exercise as I need to memorize several routines at once. It also means no more wear-what-you-want, but bedlahs and revealing outfits. On top of it, my best friend is hand-beading me a gorgeous bedlah for my b-day (April) and I want to do all of her hard work justice. If that isn't reason enough to move past myself and lose this weight, then I don't know what is! lol

I started (again) on Saturday and have had a good run of it so far.

:cheer:

I have become much stronger at my core and much more flexible. I can do many difficult moves, but the problem is that they cannot be seen properly due to the fat. lol I refuse to give up. ;)

Congratulations on your weightloss! You don't look like you have much to go to hit your goal! :carrot:
