I'm so proud of myself. I was nervous to wear my new dress to the dance competition just because it showed some leg, which I NEVER do. I did wear it and I'm glad I did. I really like it, it looks good and it's easy to dance in. Normally I get my pants stepped on because I never get them shortened lol. I'll be posting some pics of them later I just need to get them off my camera. Unfortunately, I don't have many nice pics because my camera is old and cheap and mostly the pics turn out blurry.

I've decided to get a new camera as a reward for getting below 300 pounds ^_^ I want to get a good one so I have to lose about 30 pounds to get there. I also decided to get new dance shoes when I get down to 320. They're not quite as expensive and I need new shoes soon lol.

My weekend was great. I danced a bit and I enjoyed watching my friends compete. I also danced when I went up for my certificate. It was for their social ease program, hopefully next year I'll be getting bronze. I also danced in a couple charity heats. It cost $35 for each heat and I got choose which instructor I danced with. Then we got judged and received either honors, outstanding, or something else, very good or something lol. We were judged on expression not skill and I received honors for both. I took some short video clips of people dancing but the sound isn't working, so if I can get it to work I will upload a few of my friends competeing.

I still haven't posted an actual before picture so I will take some and post them this week. I'm only down 5 pounds so it's not a big deal yet. I'm doing better lately though so hopefully soon it will be more than 5 ^_^ Then when I get my new camera I will post some new pics because I will be down a total of 35 pounds. I'm going to try really hard to make it as soon as possible.

I also want to thank everyone who commented on my last blog for encouraging me to be confident in my new dresses and not care what other people think. I do feel pretty good now ^_^

Have a great week everyone!!

I'm kinda freakin out guys. I'm going to be leaving soon for the ballroom competition and I'm dressed and everything. I'm wearing one of my new dresses, the one that only goes to just past my knees. I'm worried it doesn't actually look good for me to be showing some leg. Then too I'm worried about tomorrow's dress, the really bold one, pink and purple and really bright. I think the colors look good on me but it's a dress and I'm worried that other people won't think i look good. I know should really only care what i think but I can't help it. I just want to look nice because everyone else there will be so gorgeous and wearing expensive clothes and be thin and look great. I'm just nervous about it because I never wear dresses, and now I went and bought 2 that so out of my comfort zone, and I have no friends close enough to ask what they think. I'm leaving in an hour and I worried I'm gonna back out and change into pants. I want to be confident enough to wear the clothes I like. If I manage to wear the dresses I will definitely have some pics posted on Sunday maybe.

    I'm sure you'll look bold and shoot for the mooon! Just wear your confidence and no one will have a second thought about what else you're wearing-except to wonder where you found such cute duds!

Alright, I am getting super excited about this weekend. I'm going to a ballroom dance competition. It's the one Fred Astaire Canada puts on every 6 months. It's every Fred Astaire studio in Canada. I'm just watching, it's too expensive to compete lol, and I'd be too scared. Anyway, I'm going to supprort some of my friends who are competing and I will be presented with my social ease certificate. I have to go up and dance too lol.

I went clothes shopping today, to try and find something nice for the competition. I did something I haven't done in years, I bought dresses. I got 2 of them, one is only knee length and one is very bold and bright. I actually bought a dress that is VERY noticeable, and one that shows some leg. I don't ever show leg, any leg, ever, and I don't generally wear very bold and bright clothes. I actually have a lot of black, not on purpose though lol. I like color, I just don't normally want people to notice me that much, but I am going to be very noticeable this weekend lol. I'm kinda nervous to wear the dresses in public lol. I'm excited at the same time though because I think they look really good. I'm going to wear the bold and bright one when I have to go up and dance and get my certificate ^_^ I will definitely post pics afterward. I even got this really nice watch, because I spent over $100 lol. It's purple so it matches my dress, which is purple and pink, and of course I have earrings which are kinda pinky purple.

Tomorrow i work with my trainer at the gym in the afternoon, after work, then I have come home and get ready to go. I have lots to take actually lol, mostly because I also have to take my CPAP machine or I'll be crazy tired on saturday. I'm glad I'm feeling better now, otherwise this weekend wouldn't be as much fun ^_^

Sorry lol, I'm talking about only one thing, I'm just so excited. I also started work this week, it's my co-op for school, and I'm only part time right now until they get their new computers set up and software installed and stuff. Just for another week maybe. I'm getting impatient to get my marks and see if passed everything this term. I'm a little worried but I think I did ok, it was a really tough term with very challenging classes and I was having some difficulty. This summer I have to do my general elective and active citizenship, I'm doing them online, and I'm taking nutrition as my elective ^_^

Ok, I'm gonna go read or something to distract myself. All I can think of is going to the competition ^_^ I so have to compete one day, have a great weekend guys!!!

    Clothes shopping is so much fun, and new clothes make you feel good, well...they do me anyway.

How lucky to be able to go to the dance competition. I would love to go see it too.

Have a great weekend.

I am so happy that exams are over ^_^ I think I did relatively well on them all. Not great, but ok. This was a really tough term lol, a lot of tough classes.

Last night I went dancing at my studio's practice party. I was expecting to do a chacha routine but I didn't. My instructor wasn't there, and I found out last night that he quit. So my instructor is a woman now ^_^ It's different, but she's a really good teacher. I will also be doing some lessons at another studio that's not far away, so when I go there my instructor will be a man. It'll be fun to have a new instructor. Our parties are at the other studio because ours is a bit small, so we do them together. I've danced with the instructors at the other studio at the parties, it'll be interesting to see what they're like in lessons ^_^

Also, on monday I got tested for my social ease certificate and I passed. So, when I go to their competition next weekend, I will be going up and dancing, and then will be presented my certificate. Hopefully next year I will be getting the bronze certificate as I am actually in the bronze trophy program now.

Anyway, I'd better get going, it's lunch time and I'm hungry ^_^ Have a great weekend everyone!
