Hey guys,

I'm starting to get ready for my party. I leave in half an hour. Just got back from getting my hair done, its beautiful. I will post some pics of my hair along with my video. My hairdresser actually wants some of the pics to put in her portfolio too. I'm actually kinda excited right now, though I'm still scared. She was going to put a flower in my hair too but she didn't have any red ones and since I'm wearing black and red, it was no good. All she had left were yellow and purple.

I hope I do really well. I'm so nervous about it ^_^ I know I shouldn't be but I can't help it right now. I do really like how I look though. I actually feel beautiful tonight ^_^ With my hair and the dress and my neckalce and just everything. Admittedly the dress is still a bit too tight but its good enough. I even opted to tuck the straps into the dress and make it sleevless. It won't be falling down because its a bit tight, and I just kept having to adjust the straps because they kept falling down. I like it even better strapless. I know after tammy mentioned a bow at the back I thought about putting one in but decided against it. I guess I'm just not a bow kinda person lol. I'm still excited but I'm getting more nervous as the clock ticks closer to time to leave. I'll be one of the first, if not the first, person to dance for the routines too as they always have first time routines before everyone else.

Anyway I've talked enough for tonight, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Look for my waltz video tomorrow.

I'd like your thoughts on my dress. In particular the red ribbon, I hope it looks nice. Also, should I tie a small bow in the ribbon at the back? or would that be too much?

Ok, I decided no bow, I guess I'm just not really a bow kinda person. Also, I've decided that because I keep having to adjust the straps on my shoulders, they keep falling down. I'm just going to tuck them into my dress and go strapless. It's not like the dress needs the support if they keep falling down. I think I actually like it better strapless. At least for now, eventually as I keep losing weight I'll need the straps again to keep the dress up, but for now I don't ^_^

    You look stunning in your new dress and red ribbon! The red ribbon is a really pretty touch. I was hoping to see it tied in a bow in the back, but it looks pretty the way you had it in the video too.

And YOU WILL DO VERY WELL!! :) I have every confidence in you. This is something you love - I can tell. When you love something you put your heart into it.

I will be praying for you tomorrow for your nerves to ease and rooting for you tomorrow night! :)

Hey guys,

Hope everyone's doing well. I messed up yesterday and today. I think because I'm stressing a lot this week. Today I had a midterm, and tomorrow is my waltz. I didn't mess up too bad though, I got a chicken burger and fries from wendy's but I only ended up eating half the fries. I still went over for my calories though, probably because of the iced tea lol.

I'm both terrified and excited about my waltz, but right now the excitement wins out, hopefully it will tomorrow too. I'm more excited than scared right now because I got my dress all ready for tomorrow. It's all black but it's a valentine's party so I'm supposed to wear red pink or white. Well, today I went out and bought some red ribbon and some red sheer ribbon. I wrapped them around my dress just under my bust and let them hang long down the back. The sheer one is of course over top the solid one. I just wanted to add some more red lol. I also bought a new necklace yesterday. It's a large heart shaped crystal pendant on a silver chain. I also got some matching earrings but they're just round. They're real crystal too ^_^ I also have an appointment to get my hair done tomorrow so with all this I should feel great when I go to that party. Hopefully good enough that I won't be too scared about my routine throught the party. I want to enjoy dancing too since that's why we're there, to dance and have fun, not just look good lol. I actually think I'll be one of the most dressed up people there as there are always people who dress casual. Well, some people dress up too, especially the instructors. It varies quite a bit, but I'm dressing up really fancy, like I never do lol, but I want to for my waltz. I mean, I'm supposed to be beautiful and elegant and graceful, so now at least I'll have the beautiful part down lol. At least I think so, and hopefully I'll feel elegant and graceful too and not just scared lol.

I'm glad my test today is over though. I think I did fairly well, just one question, granted a big one, I drew a total blank on. I just could not remember how to do it. All my classes have a lot of math in them and they gave me the formula, but I just couldn't figure it out. My teachers voted again today on whether or not to strike. I don't know the result yet but if they voted yes, the strike starts wednesday next week.

I want to write more about other stuff but my mind keeps going back to my waltz lol. So I'll just end this blog now.

Have a great week guys!!! Look for my waltz video on friday.

Hey guys,

hope everyone's doing ok with all the snow. We're actually getting some snow here tonight, but not as much all that much. 5 - 10 cm which is about 2 - 4 inches I think. Not enough for me to hope my school will be closed, I have a test tomorrow lol. One I'm not ready for, but hopefully will be tomorrow.

I sorta messed up today, I had mcdonalds :( I've been doing fairly well but not today. Oh ya, and I was wrong when I said my dress fits. It fits in the morning but later in the day its too tight again, not entirely sure why. I think I'm going to wear it anyway it'll just be a bit uncomfortable. I did get myself a really nice red necklace to wear wth it though. The theme for the party is Valentine's day after all.

Tonight, I'm feeling pretty stressed. I think part;y because I had mcdonalds, partly because of my test tomorrow, and partly because of my waltz on thursday. I think a lot because of my waltz. I'm worrying about it a lot and it's so close now I'm beginning to really freak out about it. I know I shouldn't, I'm not dancing for long and I'm sure I'll do fine. Even if I mess up horribly everyone will say I did awesome anyway and I'm sure they'll mean it too just because of how difficult they know it is for me to get up there at all. I can't believe I agreed to this! I'm so close to telling them I don't want to do it after all, but I know if I do it, I'll feel so good about myself afterwards, and quite a few people will be disappointed. All the instructors, and the people I dance with on sundays that are only going this week because I told them I'm doing my first routine. I just hope my worry about it doesn't interfere with my concentation for my test tomorrow, it's only worth 25% of my total mark.

Sorry I'm rambling guys, I'm just kinda freaking out and don't know if I'll sleep much tonight, or tomorrow night, and I thought maybe if I ranted a bit it might help.

Night guys!

    I totally admire you for all that you're doing - going to school, performing the waltz in front of people, not to mention this sometimes roller coaster journey of a new lifestyle change!

I want to share with you a motivational piece from SP that I got this morning via email. When I read your concerns above and all you had to deal with this week, I thought it might help.

"What leaps of faith are you willing to take?

Trying new things can give you a real zest for life. Pushing beyond your comfort zone in a responsible way helps you grow confidence and creativity that you can apply to your everyday life. Do not let fear control what you do (or don't) do? While taking risks can be scary, doing nothing is a big mistake, as it produces nothing fruitful within you. There is a direct relationship between the things that we achieve and the effort we put forth to obtain them. To reach the fruit, you have to climb the tree first!"

I share this with you because I recognize the fact that you're stepping out of your comfort zone - especially dancing in front of folks. I totally believe in you and will be rooting you on tomorrow as you take your test and Thursday when you dance the waltz. I know that you will do well in both instances - I recognize the talent and perseverance in you.

Be proud my are reaching for your dreams! :)

My weekend was busy lol. On saturday I tested for my orange belt in hapkido, and I got it ^_^ I was quite sore yesterday from it though lol. At work, my cashier job, everything was heavy lol, and last night when I went dancing I had to keep taking breaks cus my legs were starting to burn too much again. I had fun though, and now I get to start learning to use the dan bongs, not sure if I spelled that right lol. That's the short staff. I have hapkido again tonight but I'm not too sore today, just a little in my legs and a little in my abs so I'm ok. I feel sorry for the brown belts who had to do way more and are probably still sore.

I haven't lost anything this weekend, but I tried on my dress this morning and it fits me ^_^ I was really worried I wouldn't be able to wear it for my waltz on thursday but I can now. It's still a little bit tight, but not uncomfortably so, ita good enough to wear anyway. Now I just need to make an appointment to get my hair done. Oh and I need to go buy a red necklace and earrings because its their pink red and white themed dance for valentine's day and my dress is black. Now I need to keep doing well so I can go to their championships at the end of april which I am using as a reward for getting to 300lbs. 25.5 more to go, I know I can do it ^_^

I decided I'm going to try the c25k program. I'm starting tomorrow. I really need to work on my stamina which is why I'm doing it. I'm going to run on the treadmill at the gym no matter how embarassed I feel. I know it will probably take me longer than the normal 9 weeks but I'm not gonna give up. I just feel like I need to do more because I can never keep up with the guys at hapkido and so I'm challenging myself to try and keep up with them most of the time, at least with the cardio stuff for now. It's good to have a goal in mind so I can keep moving towards it, and now I have a fitness as well as a weight related goal.

Hope everyone has a great week!

    You are kicking butt lately! Literally! I just started trying to run a little on my treadmill a couple of weeks ago. I'm working my way up to being able to start c25k, because they have you do a lot more running right off the bat than I can manage. I'm walking for the first 5 minutes, then running 1 minute, then walking 4 minutes, then running 1 minute over and over until I reach the 31 minute mark, at which point I just walk for the last 9 minutes of my 40 minute workout. So right now I'm running a grand total of 6 minutes spread out over the course of a 40 minute workout, but I plan to gradually start increasing my run durations.
